Hi Guys

I just bought a XBOX360 Elite Used one from this guy. anyway I am kind a new to game console thing. I have couple of question to the experts who is already using it.

1. Ok my Router/Modem is in another room and i have a wireless router. I know the cat5 cable that came with it won't reach the modem. So what's the solution?
2. Do i need to create an account on-line? I know on the old one you could create new profile off line. but this one is not letting me create one. (every time i try it says not online...)
3. Creating this online profile is it free? (as i bought an old one it didn't came with those silver/gold free account.)
If you guys know anything else that i should know please feel free to share the information. Like when i will be to go out online(if i can) then is there a browser or it connects with witch site etc. Also i know it can share my pc stuff how to do that. Oh more importantly how when and if connect with my router which is password protected is it going to ask me for the network password automatically or i have to remove password settings from my router?

Thanks in Advance.

You need a longer ethernet cable, or buy a Microsoft wireless adapter for around $100.

2. Do i need to create an account on-line? I know on the old one you could create new profile off line. but this one is not letting me create one. (every time i try it says not online...)To play online, you need a Gold membership, which costs $50/yr.

3. Creating this online profile is it free? (as i bought an old one it didn't came with those silver/gold free account.)
I think creating a profile is free, but again, if you can't play online without paying, what good is a profile?

Like when i will be to go out online(if i can) then is there a browser or it connects with witch site etc. 360 does not have a web browser, if that's what you're asking.

Also i know it can share my pc stuff how to do that. You should be able to find the information you need here- http://forum.teamxbox.com/showthread.php?t=498778

Oh more importantly how when and if connect with my router which is password protected is it going to ask me for the network password automatically or i have to remove password settings from my router?Do you mean a WEP/WPA key? Read this for how to set a router connection- http://www.plus.net/support/broadband/broadband_gaming/xbox_360_connection_guide.shtml

If you guys know anything else that i should know please feel free to share the information.Be careful with your 360. It has a high failure rate (33%) from overheating, also known as the 'Red Ring of Death (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caVhBCsZqr0)'. So make sure you keep it in a cool, well-ventillated place and don't keep it on for too long. You can read all about its technical issues here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_problems


I hope this helps. Btw, I'm curious, how much did you pay for your 360?

Hatebreed Bhai thanks for all the information.

About the heating issue should i disconnect it from the plug after i am done or shutting down is enough?

About the online thing. So if some one comes to my home and want to play he/she has to play under the created one right (since i have only one account or profile now) so how does it saves? i mean if the other player wants to start from the beginning of a game which i have passed 3 stages how does it saves the points for each player? or i have to have more profile on my system for it to do that? this is very confusing...

I'm not sure if removing the plug would make a difference but do it anyway.

If he wants to play from the beginning of a game then just create a new game save. His gamer profile, points, etc should be accessed and saved separately, though I'm not sure if it is saved online or on the game save. Either way, do NOT share your live account as it can lead to parmanent ban.

I think you should have bought a PS3. It would be too much for me to type why, so here is a comparison diagram I found on the net- http://i19.tinypic.com/6ouu1vq.jpg

It may come off as a bit fanboyish and 360 fanboys would tell you all of that stuff is not required, but why settle for second best?

Like HateBreed said, XBOX 360 sucks becaused it's hardware-ally incompetent and failure prone.

Ive had my 360 since launch and its never broken down, you just need to learn to keep the power brick and console cool.

Just bought a PS3 and it owns all. The Xbox is so far below it, its not even funny. The Elite isnt even that much cheaper, and theres no bogus annual subscription fee for the ps3 either...I just dont understand why this is even an issue for some.

The only reason i bought the PS3 was pretty much for Metal Gear Solid 4. I've been a fan of the series since...1997 i think it was. I guess I'm getting a wee bit old for it now, but hey....I had to follow Snakes last mission...:-p

P.S. Whats with the new *tongue out* emoticon? Its kinda gay...

How is 360 below it? Blueray and no fee? Blueray is a plus but the annual fee... it would be wrong for them to charge people for something shitty. They dont have a huge selection of good games either.

Well, for one...The PS3 blows it out of the water performance-wise...Better GPU, larger hard drive, you name it...

I admit im not too well versed in gaming matters, but would you care to elaborate on just what about it is "shitty"? As for the number of games, the link HateBreed posted seems to show that the PS3 has a much larger number of exclusive games. And Halo seems to be the only game out of the Xbox bunch thats worth buying...Again, no expert in this matter. Maybe HB could shed some light...

Did his link include Final fantasy? lol that was Ps3's biggest exclusive title, but now it will out on 360 as well.
I am not being serious when i say shitty. xbox live has been out longer, more people are used to it. PSN is new, less people playing there.
I am not going to be one sided as HB. He only sees the good side of ps3 and the bad side of 360. PS3 is the most powerful console out there. But theres more 360 out there due to the fact that it came out earlier. That means more people play online, so you get to play against really good players. Also the cross platform titles are more popular on 360 for the same reason. Both sides have exclusive titles. PS3 has MGS4, 360 has Gears 2. Both consoles have good number of exclusive titles. if we were rich enough we would own both and not have this conversation. Its not fair to say PS3 blows 360 away when clearly 360 is more popular. PS3 has a lot of potential, but so far it has not utilized it fully and thats why 360 is preferred.

And trust me there more than Halo to 360.
