Xbox Won't Connect To Live Today
Posted 11 February 2011 - 02:19 AM
I've changed nothing since the last session, and have my box in the DMZ with 3074 and 88 port forwarded to my box's static IP address. The wireless dongle connects to the network, then to the internet, but returns an "unable to connect to Live" error after thinking about it for a long while. All this time my other wifi PC clients can connect just fine.
I can't imagine I've been banned as I've not done a thing wrong (hand on heart), so was wondering whether there's a problem doing the rounds? My ISP is Talk Talk business - I hope they haven't blocked the Xbox protocols from their network - I'll be reet miffed if they have.

It looks like it might be an issue with my ISP, as although they purport to not block any ports, there has been a massive 46 page thread going on at their own forums since last week about people not being able to connect at all, or getting booted every 10, 20 or 30 minutes.
Incidentally, my ISP is TalkTalk, which I didn't choose myself, they just happened to buy my original ISP, just after I'd signed up to them
Depending on what you believe of the back-and-forth between ISP and MS, it could be a fault with the ISP's routing that was highlighted by the last update to the Xbox.
I've put in a ticket with my ISP, but I'm going to high-tail it out of there ASAP as I just don't rate them. They bought Tiscali and AOhelL too, so you can imagine what kind of an ISP they are
