Hi guys, I don't know if anyone can help me here but here goes...

Saturday I purchased the Belkin N+ router mentioned in the title as a replacement for my older, 802.11g Belkin router. I set it up with no problems using the familiar Belkin interface. All was good, I was getting better wireless coverage and performance as expected.

All was well until I tried to go on my XBOX live to play some COD. The XBOX could not connect to live and upon testing the connection I was receiving the error "your MTU settings are insufficient". However, according to the router my settings are correct.

I have tried for the best part of two days to get this working and tried just about every possible fix under the sun!

The XBOX connects some times (seemingly when I restart or restore the router) bit connectivity is quickly lost and replaced with the dame MTU error message.

So, a stab in the dark but I was wondering if anyone has this router (model F5D8635uk4A) and has any similar problems, can shed any light onto the situation?

Thanks in advance!

Chris

Well, after much time spent talking with Belkin support and doing research on the net I have come to the conclusion that this router, at present, simply does not work with XBOX Live!

So I managed to get it exchanged for a Netgear DGN2000 N Modem Router which I must say is pretty good! It's not as fancy as the Belkin menu wise and it doesn't have a USB port for adding storage but it does what it says on the tin and from what I can tell so far it does it well!

So let this be a warning to any of you with XBOX live looking to upgrade your networking gear, steer clear of the Belkin F5D8635uk4A, at least until they address the XBOX Live problem!

QUOTE Thanks
