i know this isnt entirely computer related, but i figured you guys might know a solution. I can connect to xbox live fine and everything works perfectly..this isnt the problem. The main problem, however, is i have a handful of friends i play with on the service, but one cannot join. I cannot join games when he is in a game and vice versa. We both use Pipex as our broadband provider, and we both use routers to connect to the internet. Do you guys know of anything like this being common, or is it just something we're going to have to live with? any solutions would be much appreciated!
