Re: which 1 to use
If it is a RJ-45 connector yes you can use it, The landline uses a RJ11. If the cale fits in the connector then it is a RJ45 connector and you can use this connection. If it works with your internet connection take the netwotk card you bought back. Hope this helps.

XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!). One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)
1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.
if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.
wel your o2 router is basically ur internet so if that does not work i reccomend you switch to broadband and buy the wireless adaptor for the xbox 360 and use that if you dont no how to set that up send me an e-mail to email@example.com and i will walk you through it step by step till ur up and running AND PLZ RATE THIS FOR I WILL NEED YOUR VOTE TO CONTINUE HELPING OTHERS WIT THE SAME PROBLEM YOU ARE HAVING TANKS.
Your ISP should provide you with an external modem that would be connected to your phone line, then you would connect the modem to one of the wired connections on the back of the router, or directly to the back of your computer.
However, if you insist on an internal modem, I would suggest either a U.S. Robotics or Encore brand.
It could be one of three problems - either the network adapter in your desktop PC has gone bad, the router or ports of the D-Link have gone bad or the cable you are using to connect the two is damaged. The wireless could continue to work if any of the three are problems.
Check that you have link lights on the back of the PC - you should see two where the network cable plugs in and one should flash when sending & receiving data. Also check that the corresponding light on the D-Link for the port you are plugged into is lit. Try different jacks on the D-Link as well.
To tell if the problem is the PC or the D-Link you need to connect another computer to the D-Link. Can you plug in the laptop (disconnect from your wireless first) and physically plug that in - if you have network connections in & out the D-Link is fine and your network card could be the problem. If no connection to the internet is available when plugged in to the D-Link your router is the problem or a setting in the network properties of the PC could be to blame (the latter unlikely if you recently reformatted).
You could continue to use the D-Link for wireless and pick up a 5-Port Switch or something similar to share the network connection - one going to your desktop PC, another line to the D-Link. This is a cheaper solution than getting a new wireless router.
