I have just got an xbox elite i want to connect to live but dont want to pay the £60 for the wireless kit so for now will connect with a cable the one that comes with the set looks like it connects into the back of my wireless sky router then into my xbox is this the correct way to do it i know i could read the instuctions but i am a man lol. Also if it is it is not long enouth does anybody know the best place to get an extra long cable eg which one is it i need from argos or currys etc.

Can't remember what they're called but their is a way to use a plug socket to carry your internet. Basically you buy two of these, plug one into a socket with a ethernet cable to your router, then plug the other in near your xbox with another ethernet cable to your xbox.

unless you need that length, try to use a shorter length as poss.. i've heard the quality of the connection isnt as good the longer you use


3m - very good
10m - avg
15 - below avg

(just basing that on what i've had!)
