Xbox Live.. peculiar issue.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right then, here my problem.

My 360 will work on a wired connection up here, in my bedroom, but not downstairs in the living room, downstairs we get "MTU Failed" on the Xbox Live test, its not getting an IP anyway, and it can't find any computers on the Media test, but of course the 360 isn't too helpful with error messages.

The Xbox will connect just fine if I run a looooooooong ethernet cable up to my room too and whats weirder is that our laptops will run fine off the network ports downstairs.

Up here it goes:

Xbox 360 > Some 3com switch on desk > cables to router in loft.

Downstairs it goes:

Xbox 360 > cables > Switch in loft > Router.

We were going to take a stab in the dark and say that the Linksys switch is the problem.

Anyone know of anything that might just work before we have to get ladders out to go into the loft?

could be a ip conflict, try setting up a DMZ for a couple end addresses (192.168.2.x) for example, substitute x for a number. Might work = /
