just to elaborate on zombies post..... Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms......... you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' . The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong slot....an ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)
hope this is a little easier to understand ??
p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated ! the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !
p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !
Hello, I see your wanting play online, Your xbox needs either a wireless lan adapter if wireless internet available, if not then yes you will need a internet cable, just be careful on which cable you buy, cause not all internet cables work with the X-box systems. Hope this helps and we look forward to hearing back from you.
Does the westell router only have 1 ethernet port, if so a ethernet hub would be better, they can be baught for about £10.
You will need to input your account settings for your broadband conection into your new router for it to work, with this router all you actually need to do is connect it to the 360 with an ethernet cable, if you want to use it wirelessly you need to buy a wireless adapter for the 360 for about £30 - £60 depending where you buy it.
hi ive got my ps3 hooked up with a wireless conection so feel free to ask any questions. you need a wireless hub to send out the wireless broadband signal. is your pc set up with a wireless connection to broadband?
