    Before I start, I would just like to say a) hello, and b) I'm sorry if this has come up before and you are all thoroughly bored of it. But you're my only hope!

    For the last three days I've been trying to get my new Xbox 360 to work through my Mac so I can get onto Xbox Live.

    The Xbox connects to my iMac. The iMac goes to the USB modem.

    I've managed, through intense trial and error, to get to the point where the Xbox recognises my IP address and writes 'confirmed'. But when it gets to the DNS section, it fails every time.

    I've tried all manner of different numbers for the DNS. I've gone to the system preferences and found the router number for my Mac. But nothing seems to work.

    Does anyone have any idea where I'm going wrong? I imagine it should be simple enough, because I'm not dealing with wireless, or anything like that.

    I just want to get on-line and get some games going!

    Again, so sorry to bother you with this. It'd be amazing if anyone can help. If this is solved in the next couple of days, I'll make a donation to a charity of the solver's choice!

    This should be in the Games forum (no worries since you're new).

    But do a search and I'm sure you'll find something about your problem. They talk about it a lot in the games forum.
