    XBOX live help wanted please!

    Our xbox was replaced by Microsoft because the red lights came on and it didn't work. With the replacement one they sent a months free subscription to XBOX live. My son says I have to buy a wireless adapter...is this right? If so please can you tell me exactly what it is and approx how much? Thank you.

    Well if you can connect it to your router with a cable then you will save £50 on the wireless adapter.

    agreed

    or if PC is next to 360, Ethernet cable between the 2 (cable supplied with pro/elite) which is good if your wireless and router too far away

    Our pc is in a different room (with the telephone socket) but we are wireless and have a laptop usually in the same room as the xbox.

    Use the laptop then. Just connect the 360 to the ethernet port on the laptop then follow these instructions. bimmergeek.blogspot.com/200…tml

    You could probably do it that way. I have just ordered 2 Poweline adapters for my 360, due to poor signal reception, so thats another idea, but you would be paying £30 approx for them...

    some have said there are much cheaper alternatives to official adapter, but I don't know much about them, some sort of wireless receiver...certain models only work though

    probably easier to do it that way. Follow LaoTzu's instructions
