Well, I've recently moved and have gotten semi-settled. I've gotten the PC all hooked up and now have broadband internet; IMO is just a bit faster than the DSL I had at my old apartment.
Now comes Xbox LIVE....well that's been a problem...it seems ya just can't plug in the Ethernet cable and just go to town like I did with the DSL; oh no...I've gotta go out and buy a router, hope that'll work and, epic failure... no connect.
It seems I'm failing the DNS connection part...it really pisses me off...I'll have to call the cable company to see if they can help me with this.
Why does this have to be such a headache????

I think the following article will help you troubleshoot the issue
What's the router have you bought?

I bought a Linksys 4 port router, since I have the PC running too. And everything appears to be connected correctly. I'm giving Comcast a call since I've done everything I'm supposed to on my end.

You need to set your linksys as dhcp for all the devices in your internal network.
Normally if you set everything to automatic and enable UPnP Live should work fine.

Well, as it turns out...the router is apparently not working. After talking with Linksys customer support for an hour; they told me the router I bought YESTERDAY will have it's warranty expired in October (which is next month) they suggested getting a "more updated" peice of equipment.
So, I called Comcast for giggles and spent 2 hours on the phone with them....OMG what a trial....power cycling...messing with cords...I had Xbox LIVE for like a few minutes...(by the way my Gscore updated, thanks to RB2...) but then I list PC internet...
The end result was...the router just wasn't cutting the mustard...
So close....yet so far....

If you connect to your modem directly, your live should work
However you'll probably need to release the IP address on your pc first (ipconfig /release in a command prompt)
and disconnect your cable.
after that insert your cable in 360 and boot that one up
