Hi all i need someones expertise, i am trying to setup xbox live for my friend, downstairs hes got a Netgear DG834G router connected to his pc and upstairs he has a laptop run off the router wirelessly so he can surf the net, and his xbox is connected into the laptop by crossover cable, ive turned on ics on the wireless card so its now shared and the ips are as below - the router - the wireless card - the ethernet card in the laptop - the xbox itself now when im trying to connect i get passed cables ok and ip settings but it fails everytime on dns server, ive tried ip config on the laptop to check what the dns server is ( ive tried typing that in but to no avail :bawl: the gateway settings on the xbox are so thats correct, and now im stuck, he cant afford to get another wireless ethernet adapter for the xbox and cannot move the router ANY IDEAS???? Many Thanks in advance
