Internet/Xbox help.

Hiya, I need to know what I need so my lass can play on her Xbox live whilst I can go on the internet, At the moment it`s one or t`other.
She said ours is a `direct` connection at present and said someting about a router being needed.

Any help appreciated and also any rough prices/best places to go to acquire the stuff etc.

Cheers H.

    hi mate,

    Yeah you will need a router but depending who your provider is dpeneds on what type of router you need(adsl or cable). If you can tell us if you get your broadband through the phone line or cable then myself or others can point you in right direction.

    AH right, cheers mate I`m pretty sure it`s through cable (we have Virgin for the TV, computer and phone)

    Cheers Welshy, I`m probably going to come across as quite dumb here(something I won`t deny if pushed lol) but we can still use the phone whilst the internet is being used, I take it this means we have a cable connection ? cheers.

    Not dumb at all mate

    Ok, have a look at your BB box, does it connect via a coax cable ( like a TV cable ) or into a telephone socket ?

    If it's the coax it's cable, if it's the telephone then it's ADSL although I imagine since you mentioned virgin it will be cable

    Phew ! glad I didn`t have to answer any of that, my lass has just come in and has reliably informed me it`s cable.
    Cheers for your time and the link mate, much appreciated.
