Hey guys i got a Belkin n+ router for xmas and i cant get the damn thing to give my xbmc an IP? has anyone ever had this problem with this router?

I've tried DHCP , got no where.
Tried static.. got no where?

Tried it on two xbmc's and still nothing..

Tried all of the above with different cables... still nothing!?

Are you connecting the Xbox using a straight/patch cable, or with a cross-over? (Should be one of the former)

Does the NIC around the back of the Xbox light up when plugged in?
