Well, rr...first, you have to have broadband (whether it's cable, DSL, etc...but no 56K)

Secondly, you need to have a HUB or a Switch (preferably a 10/100)

Third, you need to have 3 standard CAT 5 patch cables.

Finally, you need to download the free Gamespy Arcade Software and Free Gamespy Tunnel Software. To do that, simply go to this link: http://www.gamespyarcade.com/support/tunnel_xbox.shtml

Just get on-line! You have no idea what you are missing, dude! :)

Monkeyman...this is what you do:

1. From your DSL modem, attach the first CAT 5 cable into the modem and the other end to the port on your HUB labeled "uplink"

2. Next, from port 1 on your HUB, plug the second CAT 5 patch cable into it and the other end to the back of your computer - into the Ethernet port (it's the only port that it will fit into)

3. Finally, from port 2, plug the last CAT 5 patch cable into it and the other end into your XBox

On Gamespy, you can play Halo, Tony Hawk 2X, and Nascar Heat so far! So, get on-line, dude! It's free! :)
