How does Xbox live work? What type of connection does one need to connect to the server?

Xbox Live is a subscription based service which allows you to play games online with friends, or even search for online games with other bored souls. I think it will work even if you have a 512Kbps connection. I use a 10Mbps though. Have tried on 512 also, works fine. And since a few months, available in India also - Xbox.com | India - Xbox LIVE

Much fun cause you can voice chat with the guys you are playing. The wireless controller comes with a headphone/microphone set for that.

Just what I was afraid of, i.e. some mallu translating that one.

Heello FB1... Connect your XBOX to your DSL modem using the Ethernet port behind your Xbox next to the controller usb port. Before you connect the box to the DSL please switch off the modem and the xbox once and connect them together. And in the market place or xbox live option you can click on join xbox and pay using the xbox itself.... enjoy mate...

I've got my 360 connected through the WiFi USB adapter. I had a 256 Kbps connection earlier & occasionally faced lag in Forza 2 - with Halo 3 however, I had no lag at all.

Yep! You will need the DNS, gateway to be filled in... Not a complicated thing to do either... You are always welcome to call me if you need help .
