Our custom DNS solution should make life easier for console gamers too.

games.on.net has always provided PC users with great, quota-free gaming support, whether it’s from our file library, on our servers, or just our news and reviews. But for a long time Xbox LIVE players have been asking us to help them out with the cost of their downloads — something that, due to technical constraints, has been impossible.
Impossible… until now.
iiNet and Internode engineers have been working away hard in our patented Mad Science Laboratories to come up with a solution that all users of this great group of ISPs can enjoy. And they need your help to test it.
Opting into the testing program is as simple as changing the DNS settings in your Xbox 360. Head to:
Settings > System > Network Settings > Configure Network > Basic Settings > DNS Settings
Change this to ‘Manual’ and enter 188.8.131.52 as your Primary DNS. Your Xbox will now use our CDN to download everything from download.xbox.com. Jump onto some Xbox LIVE gaming or download some Games on Demand to give it a try.
If you have any questions or need any help, post on our forums and we’ll do our best to help you out.
