Hi, i just got halo 2, so i used the free trial code, i got everything setup, hooked my xbox into a router, had the router going to my verizon dsl modem, the signup completed
then i went and clicked on my Xtag, it says cant connect to xbox live service, would you like to trouble shoot?
I click yes, it says ip address confiured, cables connected , dns resolved and even says connected to xbox live
So i call up 18004myxbox
they tell me to plug directly to my xbox, and ask for pppoe, i called verizon, and as i thought, there dynamic, not pppoe, So he had me go to my computer that wasnt connectede to the internet since the xbox was directly connected to the modem, HE had me go to command prompt and type ipconfig /all
Then he had me take the physical address and put it into the xbox mac address in network setup
Then we turned the modem and xbox off for 5 min
Then started back up
When i booted my xbox live comes up trying to sign in, But it just says xbox live is not responding, Please try again later.
I even went to config magic and flashed with a new eeprom
Im realy confused
I didnt even get to login to xbox live
I have never been banned
My xbox is dual tsop split, one side X2 bios, other side MS 4132 retail
My dash is like 5960 (updated by halo2) thats when i check from the Xboxdash console in settings
It also shows my kernel as 4034
Am i doing something wrong??
ive tried all i cant think
someone please help
