This question has probably been asked a million times before, but I haven't found a definitive answer anywhere.

It looks like I'm going to finally break down and go with cable internet through Cox. My wife, however, wants to keep AOL as the ISP and use Cox for the bandwidth. My question is this... will I still be able to use Xbox Live with AOL/Cox?

I've heard gripes about a lot of people not being able to connect to Live because of the AOL/Microsoft rivalry but since the cable internet is actually provided by Cox (Phoenix) does that make a difference?

Forgive me if I sound like I'm talking nonsense!!

I can't say for sure, but my initial thoughts are that it shouldn't matter. As you stated, the b-band carrier is Cox, which is essentially dumping you into the open internet, and you just happen to also use the AOL client to connect to their services via the internet.

At any rate, I would imagine that it's not impossible. There's no way AOL could get away with disallowing xbox live connectivity.

If I find anything, I'll let you know.
