Found 13th Jul 2008
Bascially Ive got a second hand xbox 360 which i want to connect to a router - what cable is needed? Im guessing just a normal ethernet cable? will it be ok if i use one from my old pc?

ive searched the forums but cant find what i need - would take forever to go through all the xbox threads anyway

Actually i cant find an ethernet cable but i have just found a Belkin wireless network adaptor - will this work ok??

ethernet.

your old one should work just fine.

Yeah ethernet is fine, but setting up on xbox live was a 'mare for me mate! Good luck :-)

why? any tips then?

Yeah, buy a PC instead :P Well I had a lot of trouble with usernames and such like and the live server would randomly disconnect me. Make sure that your gamertag is the same one that you use for live, that was the big mistake I made! I had t play all my damn games over just to get the points etc D'Oh!

anyone know if the usb belkin wirless network adapter will work??

I tried that as well mate, couldn't get it working. I believe there are hacks to make it work but they aren't all that reliable (from what I remember).
