If anyone from the base wants to add me to Xbox Live for some gaming then my gamer tag is 'Samehead'. At the moment I only play Gears of War but I plan on getting other games soon. Anyone else want to share thier gamer tags?

I refuse to pay the £50 Blueyonder want to set me up with online gaming when I already have all the broadband equipment in my flat, and I give them £60 a month as it is. Robbong bastards.

Wow, that IS daylight robbery. If you have a stand alone ethernet cable modem you can do it yourself easy, here's how. Turn off your PC and Modem and disconnect the ethernet/USB from the PC. Wait around 30 seconds, plug the ethernet cable from your Xbox into your modem, Power on the modem and when it is ready turn on your Xbox, you should now be able to connect to Xbox Live.

With this method you cannot use your Xbox online and PC online together, to switch between them you need to power down your modem for 30 seconds and reconnect it. This can be easily solved by buying a router, a good model will cost around £30-40. If you already have a router just plug the ethernet cable into and away you go. If your router is wireless you need to buy the Xbox wireless network adapter.

Hope this helps.

I knew about using my modem for the Xbox, but how Ive got everything set up it would be a pain in the **** disconnecting then connecting etc... as all my cables are very hard to get to!
The wire less router is an option that I will look into after Christmas is out the way. FIFA 07 and Double Agent would be class online.

Not sure about DA because I don't have it yet, but FIFA 07 I have and I cannot stand it at all! I got it with the console and I should never have even put the disc in the tray. PES all the way.

There is instructions in the 3rd post on how to connect your xbox using a stand alone modem. If you have a router connected just simply plug the ethernet into an open port and plug the other end into your xbox.

Yup PC World will have a nice selection of routers and their staff will tell you which would be best for you if you ask them, they're very helpful at PC World.
