    Need massive xbox live help!!

    Right...
    Well i am at uni and need to set my Live up in my halls as COD is coming out too soon!
    To set up a computer/internet device at uni i have to register its MAC address - which i have done...
    I plug in the network cable to my xbox and it finds the network but doesn't connect to the internet?
    The message that comes up says.."your DNS server cant resolve the names of the xbox live servers on xbox.com"...?

    anyone have any idea on what to do now?

    thanks..

    No, but it also doesn't allow smoking in rooms...
    It can be done ive heard - from a source in IT services - but he wouldn't tell me how, he said ask on the internet...

    If the ports arent blocked, then ics should work.
    Internet connection sharing.
    Requires a computer with a connection to the internet and a way of connecting your 360 to the laptop.
