Helping a friend get Xbox Live.


Luke

Recommended Posts

My friend wants to get Xbox Live, but he has a couple of problems:

 

1. He doesn't want the wireless adapter

2. He has no computer in his room

 

What he does have though, is a phone line in his room. What could he get to connect his Ethernet cable to his phone line without a computer so that it would enable him to play xbox live?

Does he not have a router?

Depending on where his router is then wireless is probably his only option.

If not get a long ethernet cable and go through the roof or something.

So you can't connect it straight to the phone line?

Need some more background information. How does his computer currently connect to the internet?

 

You won't be able to connect directly from a phoneline unfortunately as the Xbox doesn't have a modem in it, only an ethernet port.

 

Can't remember what it's called, HomePlug maybe? But it lets you create a network through your power plugs. He could use that.

This thread is now dead since he has decided to take a U-turn and get the wireless adapter.

 

Thanks for all those who have helped.
