What broadband do you have?

You may be able to plug your xbox directly into your modem, or you may need a router.

I used an ethernet cable from my xbox to my router first to establish the connection (go onto network settings on the system section to set up the connection)...Then once the connection was sorted I bought a wireless network adapter so I could play wirelessly.

Basically you need that long cable with plastic endings which are the same each side, its usually inside the box.

You plug one plastic thingy at the back of the xbox and then the other plastic thingy in the router.

If your router is far away then you need a wireless thingy which can cost around £40

didnt notice your comment about not speaking IT talk lol...Heres what you will need plus links to where to buy them. I used play.com simply because i use the site ALOT.

Ethernet cable - this connects into the back of your router and the other end goes in the back of your xbox

Then go on to system settings, then network settings on your xbox and its fairly self explanatory from there. If you want to keep playing using the cable then thats all you need. However, if you want to play wirelessly then you will need a:

Wireless Network Adaptor - Plug this into the back of your xbox and use the same steps as before to allow the network adapter to find your wireless connection.

These a pretty expensive but search around you should be able to find them cheaper.
Hope this helps and good luck!
