Xbox 360 and PC connection

  charlton200 15:27 04 Dec 2006

My wife has bought an xbox 360 and she wants to use Xbox live, and be able to connect it to my PC.
She has given me info off the xbox website on connection and want me to connect it to my PC.
The xbox will be in one one room, the PC in another.
I am on windows xp and have tiscali broadband.

I am not too good with computer technology and don't understand too well .
I would be grateful if any body has done this or can give me any advise.

You need to use your 'Router' (if you have one).

Simply either use the 'Wireless Adapter' (sold separately) and follow your Router's manual for instructions on how to link adapters to it.
Or, as I have done, attach a ethernet cable linking your router to your 360.

From your router, your 360 can access the net and access media from your PC
