So I have 8 months of free X-box live cards (You know the ones that come inside certain popular games) and I was trying to set it up yesterday. I have a Motorola SB4100 Cable "Surfboard" Modem and a Medion CPU (Not sure which). I tried hooking X-Box live up last night and I did the direct connection setup (As I have no Router ). I got a DNS Error. I tried power-cycling my modem and what not. After no avail I called my cousin. He told me that he had the same error and he couldint fix it and so he went out and bought a router. I really dont want to buy a router but I do want to play X-box live. Is there anything else that can be done? Has anyone else had this problem? Also: Is there a way with a Modem and a CPU that I can play without a direct connection because I would like the hae internet acces on my CPU while I play X-Box. Thanks, /,,/ Rock on!
