You need to connect your XBOX to the internet... if you already have a wireless router, you need to get a wireless adapter for your XBOX. Or just run a wire to your router.

This the XBOX device, but you can get one cheaper than that...

Hook an ethernet cable into the back and start your Xbox up without a disc in. If you want to use wireless you will have to purchase the accessory which I think is around $100. If I remember right it should prompt you to setup a new Xbox Live account. There should be a 2 month free trial coupon that came with Ghost Recon. Use that, create an account and then go back to Ghost Recon and sign onto Xbox Live.

Ghost Recon you kind of just have to find games, so you are matched up against all skill levels. The best part about Halo 2 is the ranking system and matchmaking. You get put against people of similar skill levels and you can pick from a bunch of different playlists.

Let's play...

Connect your Xbox to the internet like you would a computer (cat5 cable).

You need a Live card. GR2 should have come with a free trial card. If not I may have some old ones lying around. Youy basically buy a 1 month or 1 year subscriotion and then follow the promopts. It's easy.

Im not sure if you can just subscribe onscreen. Go to Bestbuy, etc and buy a Live subscription card. Its ~$50 for a year.

Pick a gamertag that is easy to type and send me a friend request.

xKRUZx rules that game.
