    Just got my XBox Live kit this morning and have been playing MotoGP etc, but my PC keeps crashing so I lose my connection :mad: . Due to lack of knowledge when I got broadband I ended up with a BT Voyager USB modem so I have to connect to XBox Live with ICS through my PC. As my PC is old, 233MHz Pentium II with 64Mb ram & Win98, if I get more than 2 or 3 other players online my PC locks up or crashes. Anybody else have the same problem?

    I'm going to buy a new ethernet modem (cheaper than a new PC) so any suggestions on which is best. I think this will remove the crappy PC from the equation.

    Cheers
    Rich

    Check out the hardware reviews on www.adslguide.org . Most routers will be fine.

    I would recommend the Netgear DG814 router, extremely easy to set up. It detects all your settings for you and you do is simply enter in your username and password.

    Just make sure that what ever you buy it supports PPP Over ATM. Dlink make a great box in the 604.
