Switched from DLS to Cable and now my Xbox won't connect- Help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When I had DSL I had my xbox (non wifi) hard wired to a 4 port switch that was hard wired to my router which was hard wired to the modem.

Now with my cable modem I have it hard wired to a router which is wired to the same 4 port switch I used before. I have my PS3 hooked to this switch and it connects just fine. With the Xbox it doesn't seem to be able to pull the mac address (or something) it needs. I've tried some manual setups (don't know if they were correct though) and cannot get it to work.

With DSL it was just plug and play. Why am I having trouble with cable?

Thanks for the help.

Is it possible something on your router got changed while you were setting up the cable modem? Are you having any other related issues? Is the PS3 hard wired too? I'd recommend logging into your router and going through to make sure it's letting the Xbox get a MAC address or whatever else it might need.

But also, for people to help you better, give more details like the type of modem, type of router, etc.

OK. I'm at work so I'll have to get that stuff later.

The PS3 is wired to the same switch/router/modem and connected automatically as did a blu-ray player in another room that is connected directly to the router.

Thanks
