I have an old computer running Gentoo. The Gentoo box is sharing the internet connection through two ethernet cards. When I plug in my xbox to eth1 I can't get an IP address. When I plug in my xbox to a router it does give it an ip address. Why does the xbox not recognize that it is plugged into a ethernet connection?
