Hi,

I'm have been trying to connect to xbox live, but have been unsuccesful. I would ring up technical support but i have no hme phn and cellphn reception is bad were i live.

The connection fails and says isp is not found

1. Do i need to put my username and password in.

2. do i use an automatic ip address

3. is there anything else i need to put in

I am also pulling my ethernet cable from computer and putting into xbox, is this alrite?

this is probably very simple but i just cant get it to work

Any help would be appreciated.

You should just need to set it on automatic so the xbox gets an IP from your router.

What is the brand & model of your ADSL modem? Unless you are using 'Internet Sharing' and have two network cards in your PC then you should NOT plug the Xbox into your computer. If your ADSL modem has more than one network (ethernet) ports then plug the Xbox into one of these, otherwise you will need to get a switch, router or hub to provide access for both computer and Xbox. Also, make sure UPnP is enabled in the modem and/or router. As a test, plug the Xbox into the modem instead of the PC & do a Xbox connection test.
