    Bought xbox live today and also a Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless-G Router. I really don't know much about this stuff but none of it works. The instructions are not making much sense so i was wondering if anyone could help. I tried reading the other trears about routers but they don't make much sense either.

    My broadband is working fine (using it at the moment) with the stuff Wanadoo sent through the post but when I disconnect this and connect to the new stuff nothing works. I followed the setup instructions but cannot get any of it to connect to the internet, even though all of the lights are green on the router as they should be.

    When I try to go to xbox live it won't connect either. I tried to connect the xbox directly to the line without putting it through the router but the connection is too big for the socket, you know the one that plugs into the phone line and is connected to a little box with two sockets, one if them says "phone", the other says "DSL". I don't know what to do next.

    It is driving me nuts... :lease:

    Hi Gary, how's it going?

    At the moment I am playing Forza but am finding it a bit tricky...I can drive the cars ok but they don't seem fast enough to keep up with everybody.

    Other games I have for Live are Midnight Club 3, Crimson Skies, Splinter Cell CT, Halo 2, Gotham 2, Burnout 3...maybe a couple more.

    My wife chose my tag by pointing randomly at text in am Xbox mag as I was having trouble thinking of one...so I am now officially known as "Missile Truck" thanks to a review of Mercenaries!

    As soon as I know how to find the friends list I will add you to it. Feel free to add me to yours. I would probably be useless on Splinter Cell, I can't get past the mission with the ship!

    there are loads of people on live, unfortunately 90% play the same 2 games, halo2 and Rainbow63.

    To answer your earlier query about friends list, turn on your xbox using eject instead of teh on/off switch and it shoudl take you to the xbox live dashboard where it will show you your friends list, you can also add friends here as well by typing in their gamertag.
