    Hi Mrs Chrome has come in with the Halo2 and live subscription pack for me last week :thumbsup:

    What do i need to buy to set this up?

    I have my host pc in the bedroom feeding a shuttle in the cinema room (wired) and a desktop in my daughters room (also wired)

    Help in plain non jargonised English would be beneficial :D

    Have you got a router?

    If not, it is best to get a router, wired or wireless, the Netgear ones are a good start.

    DG834 - is my router (non-wireless, but you can add a wireless access point at a later date, like I have)
    DG834G - is 54mbps wireless router
    DG834GT is 108mbps wireless router

    The easiest way is to run an ethernet cable from your xbox to your router, with any of the above routers.
    If you go wireless you just need need a wireless bridge for your xbox (Netgear WGE111) along with one of the above wireless routers (834G or 834GT)

    Easy peesey...instructions are with the routers.

    Also, make sure the ethernet cable you use from your router to xbox is 'Straight' cable and not 'Crossover' cable.

    :rtfm: :D Inside your wonderful halo starter pack there are lots of pieces of paper stapled together, the first page of which is coloured black and says 'XBOX Live Instruction Manual' and on page 4 it tells and even shows you how to connect to live! :D
