you'll also need an XBOX Live account...you get Silver as standard but this doesnt allow you to play games online...you get 1 months free gold membership to play online and after that you have to pay...best would be around £25 for 12/13 months

when you get your hardware sorted buy your subscription off this place ]http//ww…tml

you should have all you need in the elite box with regards to ethernet cable failing that you need a wireless adaptor or some ethernet plugs then simply purchase a gold account from loads of places including the dashboard of the console itself

use this microsoft.com/win…spx

1, are u wireless? if u r you just need to buy a wireless network adaptor priced between 50 and 60 play.com/Gam…tml
if not u need to connect the ethernet cable the yellow one from the internet source to the xbox which means the xbox cannot be upstairs but next to the internet source.

2, with the internet connected u then need to buy a subscripton account, gold is the best

3. with this done u just need to configure the internet settings on the xbox, thats it.

4. good times!!!!! call of duty 4 modern warfare and fifa 08 and 09 online are both highly recommended buys

If you have homeplugs these can be used instead of the wireless adapter, or if there is a PC near you can plug straight into the back of the PC and create a bridge

i plugged a modem straight into the back of the xbox so it had its own dedicated modem . perhaps you can do this if you have a phone socket upstairs

I got a 50 meter ethernet cable from downstairs to upstairs no need to buy a wirless adapter.
