    if your broadband is in your bedroom then you can use the ethernet wire which comes with the 360. connect one end of the wire to 360 and the other end to your modem.

    if your broadband is however in another room then you need to buy the 360 wireless adapter which costs around £50 at pc world. attach the wireless adapter to the back of the 360 to pick up wireless signals. however you will also need a router (about 25-30 quid on ebay) which you attach to the modem. the router sends wireless internet signals from your modem to the wireless adapter on your 360.

    hope this helps!

    if you visit the netgear site they will show you which adsl routers work with the 360. i am pretty sure most do. in my opinion netgear routers are great.
