Try changing those 2 DNS servers to those provided by your ISP. You can check yours by doing ipconfig /all in a cmd window.

I'm assuming that you are running Windows XP Home Edition with Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) enabled - I'm also guess that Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) is turned on.

This appears to be a DNS resolution issue from the XBOX. ICS will provide a DNS server for you, so you probably want to try changing the primary DNS on the XBOX to 192.168.0.1. Also make sure that you can resolve addresses from the computer - I'm guessing this isn't a problem since you are posting to XBOX-Scene, but it never hurts to verify :-)

Good luck.
