Just connected my kids wii last night to the netgear wireless connection. Had to have my laptop beside me to find the router settings and change a security setting on the wii for it to connect. Google xbox and sniff around. :cya:

Before I left the UK this time I set up a llive account for my boy but wasn't able to figure out how he could find and then join games online. Is this a case of having to know the nicknames and then list them of others online or is there a simple way of just listing games ongoing or about to start and then joining in?

it's all a bit gibberish to me.

You could use one of these, MN740 ($109, but its basically the same as an MN710 USB adapter, for $30)
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xboxwirelessadapter/\

however on Amazon it lists for $50, and users say it works with the 360, just use the settings and not the install disc

If its an X360 you have then the official answer is
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360wirelessnetadapter/default.htm

Amazon lists it for $78
http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Network-Adapter/dp/B000B6MLV4

If you don't mind a non X-box product, this works with Xbox with no drivers at 802.11b, for $32 (£16...)
http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WGA11..._5?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1212626093&sr=1-5

Or this is Wireless G if you want more speed for $47
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...p_cp_ob_title_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1212626093&sr=1-5

Of course, as mattbea suggests, you could hook up to a RJ-45 port first to see what all the fuss is about online gaming before you drop any cash. See an Xbox forum like http://www.xboxaddict.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-13371.html
for more specific nerd info

Hope that helps

You don't need to know any gamertags, or have anyone on your friendslist in order to play online.

Every game has a slightly different setup, but they usually all have a simple feature setup like "play unranked match" which will just chuck you in a random game for you to play.
