Question about Computers & Internet
Yeah, DNS is the domain name service that sometimes sucks depending on the ISP and day of the week; there's an OpenDNS.org you can try on the XBox to get things going if the ones from your ISP can't satisfy; but it might also be that you need to explicitly allow DNS routing for the XBox.
Also, your problem description is lousy because I can't tell what the data path to the XBox is; off the router, to your PC, and again on a cable from your PC to the XBox, or what? Take off all-caps and explain what router you have...maybe make a new question under that router's model name, since that's the issue...and how you think the XBox ought to have internet connectivity.
