View Full Version : [ubuntu] Xbox 360 connection sharing - DHCP setup but fails on DNS

January 3rd, 2009, 12:34 AM
Hello there,

I've been hacking away on trying to get my 360 sharing my wireless connection to my PC for a little while now, but it keeps failing on DNS!

I have a dhcpd3-server running, which makes the 360 connect to my Ethernet card which is connected to the 360 via a network switch. My setup currently goes like this:

eth0: (static IP)
ath0: (DHCP from router)

There is also a wifi0 and a pam0, but I don't think either of those are used.

The 360 tries to connect to me, and with Automatic IP Settings it brings up: This seems to work OK, but I'm not sure about the gateway.

The DNS is the part that I'm having trouble with: I have it set to my ISP's DNS addresses currently, which doesn't work. I have also tried my router address as said in other guides, as well as my eth0 address, my ath0 address, and the 360 itself - all to no avail.

I also have bind running to see if that helps, but I'm not really sure what I'm doing and that isn't working either.

What am I doing wrong? All help greatly appreciated!
