going live on xbox 360

okay, i dont have virgin internet anymore but have an adsl connected modem on broadband ( pipex ) what i want to know is how do i get this to work with xbox live? the modem i have is connected to my pc via a usb cable and before i go on the net i have to put in a username and password. im guessing that i have to get somthing called a patch cable to go from my xbox to my pc for it to work, but then this means i have to have my pc running while im on live.

does any one else know how i can get connected or ideas? and also have i got the above correct? thanks.

You need an ethernet cable crossever probably --- plug that into the xbox and then set it up on the xbox it should just connect straight away

The only way you could have the xbox running without the pc being on is to have a router

Shouldnt matter which cable is used nowadays. As long as you have an ethernet cable then you should be ok. The computer will need a bit of configing, but im sure someone on here will know what to do.

If you want to have the computer off while using xbox live you will need an adsl router.

Only configging needed if probably checking the box to allow the net to be shared
