    I bet the school has limited the MTU amount I believe it has to be around the 14920 mark, maybe a bit under. This is a change that has to be made to the router though that is controlling the network. However I find it hard it hard to believe that no one else in the building has an xbox. Maybe talk to other people that are having a similiar problem.

    Maybe you should try using the computer as a bridge

    I'm pretty sure it isn't that. I had a similar fault last year when I was attempting to set it up on a different network, suffice to say I wasn't the one who fixed it in the end. I can't use my pc as a bridge as it only has one network port. Unfortunalty I appear to have screwed up the original network I had so can no longer access live. So I won't be on tonight, tommorow I'll call their support services and see if they can help me.

    You don't have it set to acquire a manual ip address or dns? Google common problems that cause the MTU error for live. I'm sure you'll find your fix there

    On a side note, I was thirtsy and only had red bulls so I'm on my 3rd woot. However writing a paper is killing me...need to kill people...in halo

    I'm in the same boat, Dix. Gotta write some boring-as-hell paper on The Tale of Genji which I naturally have not read, but having immediate access to all the current generation consoles plus internet in my room is not helping all that much.

    I'll be hopping on in a minute or so if anyone wants to play.

    Also, I just bought a 1600 MS Points card. What to do? I could get Mega Man 9 and Bionic Commando. Or, I could get Castle Crashers and Sonic 2. OR, I could just get the Penny Arcade game.

    1) bungie is making announcement at TGS

    2) there's an article on bungie.net about it, but the game does render screenshots at like 5x the real resolution, and applies better AA and Anisotropic filtering, and does it tile based etc

    it does look that clean though. .to me. screenshots just look smoother.

    Seeing as I caved in and bought the Legendary pack yesterday...

    They'll announce the Mythic pack will be released next month and that the Legendary Pack will be free then as well.

    Cause thats how it goes.

    If Legendary ever goes free, it probably won't happen until next year.

    I think the attitudes have become much more aligned as of lately. The disharmony in our group is settled and things are rolling together well. My POS Verizon router STILL likes to jump my IP addresses around for no @#%;ing reason. If I'm complainin' about that its because its my own damned fault.

    Log into your POS router and have it assign your XBOX's mac address a static IP. Whenever your xbox turns on it will ask the router for an IP and the router will give it that static IP. You can do the same thing for your computer.

    I remember playing 250 at PAX and after doing some really awesome things with a shotgun and gaining the lead I stuck Nambkab in the back.. it was sadly one of my best sticks ever.

    I assume that the "infection" the Covenant speak of was us -- Harvest was the first encounter with us, and the Flood wasn't even a blip on their radar yet.

    And an Arbiter being there makes sense; they're the tip of the Covenant spear during important missions, and I could see the Prophets discovering the humans would be something fitting of the label "a time of crisis."

    But if the Flood are found on a human colony, buried in a Forerunner facility (instead of the massive rings specifically built to contain and study them), I will be pissed.
