Okay, it seems as if the database problem killed my previous thread. I didn't get to read any of the responses after my last post, and I'm still having this problem. To summarize: I have a Motorola Surfboard SB4100 modem that I'm trying to direct connect to my X-Box using Cat5e. I power the modem down, and I select Live from the Dashboard. It reads for a second, then says Cannot Connect to Network. It troubleshoots the connection, everything comes up positive except for the last menu item, which says some like X-Box Live Not Found. It was suggested I may need to get a router. I asked if this one would fix my problem. I also would like to know how to get my MAC address so I can manually enter it. Thanks for the help.
