I live on campus at UCF. We have this gaming center and i went there about 2 months ago and the girl working their told me that you can use Live in dorms, so i figured id go back there once i got it so they can help me hook it up if i couldn't do it. Well they are closed and idk when they are opening back up.

But anywayz i was connecting to live and everything was going right except the MTU failed the test. I have no idea what MTU is or any clue what i have to do. Does anyone know of what i can do??

I know to get on live in the dorms here, we had to bypass the school's firewalls by routing it through our computer first. So we needed two ethernet ports on our computer.

You have to run your ethernet through your computer, before your xbox. so you can't go straight from your wall to your xbox. Again, that's how we had to do it.

OK well i just talked to the gaming place. What i need to do is find the NIC address on my xbox and put it into this website. She didn't know how to find the NIC address on the 360 though.

Anyone know?

yeah it should be somewhere in the system settings, probably the network settings... its also called a MAC address so keep that in mind when your looking for it...

Your gamerscore points are earned by earning achievements. Those are different than Microsoft points, which you have to buy & those allow you to purchase items in the XBL Marketplace.

MTU and a MAC address are two different things.
