    if you have a USB modem, which it sounds like you have, then you can't connect it to your xbox, you will need to run a network cable from your xbox to your pc, or buy a router/modem to link it to. If you choose the xbox to PC route you will need to set-up 'internet connection sharing' visit xbox for a guide to setting it up.

    "Connect the Ethernet out port on the PC NIC to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console using the cross-over cable". I found this step on the xbox live website. It is for using internet connection sharing which is the method i have to use to access xbox live. But i am confused as to what the PC NIC ethernet port is. I understand that i need to link a cable from the back of my pc to my xbox, but is this called a cross over cable? I am confused. :confused: Where exactly is the PC NIC? and what the hell is it? This is the only part i don't understand.

    Thanks guys. :smoke:

    in English, its basically a network port on the back of your PC, it will look the same as the one thats on the back of your Xbox, and if you bought you PC from a shop in one go(ie from Dell or PC World) then its probably next to the modem on the back. Your know if its connected properly as the Green/Red lights will come on, both the PC and XBox, then all thats left is to run the ICS(internet connection sharing) Wizard (on windows xp that is)
