    Default Xbox Live what i need?..

    Decided its about time I signed up for live...
    thing is i am completely clueless as to what I need..wires etc..live membership etc..

    whats difference in Live gold, silver etc??...

    what hardware do I need.. have a normal Xbox360 console with memory unit built in..still have box and stuff somewhere..is this all i need?..

    I will be connecting it up to my wired broadband... does it just plug into the modem box where my internet lead comes from?.. and how do i sign on to internet as my internet logs on via password etc>??..

    Go and buy the Xbox live starter kit (£40 normally). This gives you 12 months Gold membership and comes with a headset too. All you need is then a means of getting your Xbox connected to the internet - either an ethernet cable into your router/modem (what you've said) or using the Xbox wireless adapter if you have a wireless router. Golden Bullet is selling one of these at the momen - makes it much neater if your router is a bit of a distance away from the Xbox.

    If it's a router then no need to enter any of your broadband account details into the Xbox, you only do that if you're plugging it directly into a modem etc.

    Difference between Gold and Silver is that Gold lets you play online, Silver just gives you the Live access for downloading demos/videos etc. and chatting to people.

    Not quite sure on that one but I would have thought it was the same, as you can log in from anywhere in the world once you have a gamertag
