Has anyone been on Xbox Live from a hotel room? I am currently in a hotel and can get connected but I can not chat or play oline with others. I can send messages and download from the marketplace as well. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. If so, were you able to fix it?

I used to do it quite easily. If its a normal WiFi connection that you dont need to log-in to connect to, then use the normal WiFi connection.

If you need to log-on, then just share connection with your laptop

Are you really that bored that you put your 360 online in a hotel? Personally I dont care, Thats cool though. I'd check the connection just to make sure XBL isn't doing something or anything else.

When you travel with work and can spend 15 nights a month in a hotel- youll get bored of it pretty quickly ;)

Anytime you're able to get on XBL but not use all of the features, I believe the culprit is the router/gateway. Not something that you'll likely be able to get the hotel to change for you

Yes, I really am that bored. I am travelling solo for work and there is nothing else to do. I called support and they can't figure it out. I am just confused on why I can do everything but chat and play games.

It is not a WiFi connection and I have to log in. I have a router that I use for work and have to use it so I can log in through my laptop since I can't through the computer. How do you share the connection with your computer????? Do tell!!

Good point!! I am going to go check to see if the router is on the list of compatible routers. That could be my problem.

I play games almost every night. If i was traveling i'd take my 360 with me. If you got live why not get on live?
