Long time since I posted anything in these forums! And I'm being a bit of a trickster, I've got a few questions about a few different things...

The main one is about my XBOX 360. I finally brought one this weekend, and obviously brought XBOX live! The only problem is, the XBOX won't connect to my LAN...

I have got it linked up by an Ethernet cable to my laptop (Toshiba Equium 7500) which in turn connects to a Belkin 54g wireless router (connected to an NTL provided modem) through my laptop's internal wireless card. I can't connect the Xbox directly into the modem or the router, just not an option, so this seems the best way to do it.

I tried to connect to Live! but got told that the MTU test had 'failed'; basically I don't know what this means or how to fix it. I went looking around online and I found out from the Microsoft site how to change the registry to affect MTU settings, but it hasn't done anything. If anyone could post a guide on how to set up my XBox to the network I would be highly grateful.

The next thing I need to ask is whether there is a way to apply a barrier to the amount of HD space a certain user can use on a home PC? I ask because my mum needs to stop my bro using up all the computers space with his 'naughty' downloads...any help?

Last but not least, is there a way to get to 'System Restore' without the WinXP Accessories shortcut? Because I seem to have deleted it!...

Here's hoping that someone out there can help me with all these problems!

p.s. If anyone is annoyed that I posted 3 things in one post, then please just tell me not to do it anymore, and I will create separate threads for each problem.

Don't know anything about XBOX 360, maybe try posting in the Networking section.

To access System Restore, Click Start menu > Help and Support and under the "Pick A Task" heading, click on "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". This actually opens the system restore program and you can create a new point or restore to an old point from here. There may also be a faster way of accessing it, but this works.

As for the limiting space for users, I'm not sure exactly how to use it, but if you right-click on your hdd, select properties, and then select the 'quota' tab, it's something to do with this. I suggest you search (Google, Microsoft etc...) on how to properly use this as I have never bothered with it.
