    Okay, hubby and I got our Xbox as an xmas gift and have been playing along fine. We've been looking at running cables or possibly wireless so we can try the "Live" option. The questions are as follows:

    Which is a better recommendation, wired or wireless? Are there any issues we should be aware of with each option? Lag times etc? We can do either.

    Second ... hubby and I don't necessarily play the same games (some but not all) and not always together either. So, when we do start using Xbox Live can we have separate game "Tags" for each of us on one billed account? Most of the people we know have only one person in the house who plays on live ... or they just "share" a gamer tag. Hubby and I don't would rather have our own.

    Suggestions? Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Wireless is superior for no wires... obviously. I've experienced no lag whatsover.

    One game tag = one acount
    two game tags requires two accounts = 100 bucks.

    Thanks Gary [​IMG]

    We'll probably go wireless if lagtimes are not an issue [​IMG]

    Guess I shouldn't be surprised at the 2 game tag = 2 account thingy [​IMG]

    Ah well, thanks again.

    Wireless is good if you dont have any interfearence in your house. But wired is good as well. ive used both, and they are both excellent. Just use which ever is easier for ya
