Bare with me folks....if anyone can confirm my suspicsions it would be much appreacieted. I regret getting a Smart Hub, for a couple of months last year the DHCP was not working correctly, seems to be fixed after a firmware update but BT sent me another hub, only just got round to plugging this one in and the wifi on it is 1-3mb, When i plug my old (now mostly working) hub back in i get the full 65MB
Anyway the issue I have is for the past few months on Xbox Live I cant recieve game invites, otherwise everthing is working. Xbox is ethernet connection by the way. I've been playing with the DMZ and ports for a few days and everynow and then I think its fixed only for it to go again
Now the only thing I can see in correlation is today I've been testing and on my wiered desktop sometimes I cant access the Hub manager page 192.168.1.254. It just times out. When I try and get game invites whilst this is down nothing comes through, eventually the page loads up and presto I am getting game invites again
So what is it that would be causing the page not to load, is it something to do with the DNS. Might be a coincidence but it seems odd that either both faults happen together or not at all
Thanks in advance
No, lack of access to the hub page at 192.168.1.254 has nothing to do with DNS.
You put in the numerical IP address so DNS is not required. I suspect another faulty hub. Quite a few reports similar to yours. If my router behaved like that it would be consigned to the bin and a new one purchased, and not a router from the ISP.
