    ....You tried putting a Cat ethernet cable....in your phone jack...............

    It needs to be plugged into a modem, router, or network card.

    any electronics store should be fine, they go pretty far (my friend has a 50 ft) and they dont cost much at all either, just go to a local best buy or something and if they dont have them they should tell you a store to go to)

    its based around a gamertag, you gotta get online ($50 for 13 months) before you can get online to play with people.
    but if/when you do, my gamertag is: Conscriptt

    Once you pay the $50 for xbox live that's all you need to pay for to play all the online games...

    silver is free and gold is $50. once you have gold membership then you can play online.

    man oh man. :D

    You get Xbox LIVE GOLD free for 1 month when you CREATE a Gamer tag.

    Have you created Your GAMER TAG?
    if so, when your in the DASHBOARD, and sign in, where your GAMERTAG (aka xbox name) is, is it a Grey/Silver background? or GOLD? That tells you what you have in your membership.

    and yes xbox live for 12months is 80$. however you can get cards for 50$ or so, and there 13 month cards.

    have fun man
