What security level are you using on the hotspot?

I eventually got mine going, once you enter your hotspot password on the xbox, restart the xbox so its picking up your hotspot while it loads up from scratch.
Weird bug..

Still no go. Having the same problem if I try to bridge a tethered connection to a laptop and plug the laptop into the xbox via ethernet cable.
In both cases it almost connected, just enough for my games to ID that they need updating and are now unplayable until they are!!
