Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have an xbox 360. my internet is provided though and rcn cable modem (actual cable rather then phone line). i hooked the ethernet cable from the rcn cable modem to a 2wire wired/wireless modem to get a wireless connection to my vista laptop.now the connection is great on the laptop, but when i use an extra ethernet cable to hook up to my 360, the xbox live test always fails on the MTU test. also, on the 2wire wired/wireless modem, then dsl light always is blinking red even though the connection is going great to the laptop.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: 360 mtu test keeps failing
Access the routers setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 (ip address of the router) on the address bar on IE.
then on basic setup page at the bottom part of the page you will see MTU normally its on auto,
to change the value set it to manual. ask your isp what is their prefferred value for the mtu you can go as high as 1300 to 1500.

SOURCE: i have a xbox 360
check on the MTU settings of ur 2wire.
This are the steps to see what ur MTU setting is:
>connect a computer to the 2wire
>open Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox
>enter this on the address bar: gateway.2wire.net/management
>enter ur system password (in case u forget this, click on i forgot my password to get a hint)
>look for Advance in the column on the left
>click on configure services
>on the bottom, u shud see the MTU number
** i searched online and accdg to xbox tech support, ur MTU should be in the range of 1364 to 1500 **
>click on submit after u change the setting
just in case youve entered the correct MTU setting but it still does not work, u might need to contact either xbox or ur internet service provider.
Keep me posted on this one.
