How do i connect my xbox 360 up to xbox live? I purchased an xbox 360, the basic core one and a few months later i purchased a 60GB hardrive. I have wireless broadband with virgin media for my laptop. I wondered how i get my 360 up and running to xbox live, i know i have to purchase a 1 year subscription gold xbox live card but do i need to buy anything else?
To able to get onto Xbox live you only you don't need to purchase the 1 year subscription. The 1 year subscription is just for people who want to play multiplayer.
The only other thing you'll need is either the Xbox 360 Wireless network adapter or something like the WGA600N that was discussed earlier in this thread.
As for how to set up your Xbox 360 to your network you might want to take a look at Xbox 360's support page.
