Is there anyway to play Xbox Live with 2 systems? My brother has Xbox Live and I just purchased my own system with Live and we want to play online against each other. It lets one of us connect to Live.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Andy

you're sharing the same IP, no good

You need 2 seperate IPs, at least $30/month from your ISP

Transfer his file to a memory card and he can play as himself on your system

Andy,

I was in a similar situation. I purchased a Linksys 4 port router and it solved my problem. I connect to the web via digital cable.

1. You should not be able to use the same Xbox Live account simultaneously on two different machines.

2. If you get a your own account, you can use a router to give both Xboxen internet access. You don't need to pay extra fees to your broadband provider or get a new IP. Your ISP and the router will have info about setting everything up. It is usually easy, but I would suggest you check the router compatibility list. Be warned that you could conceivably have lag issues with two Xboxen on-line at once.

3. Once you have a router set up, you and your brother can play System Link games. Get six friends over for eight-player Halo. And research your games -- IIRC, Max Payne falsely claims to support System Link on the back of its case. Ghost Recon supports it, but only one player per Xbox.

Just make sure you have enough upload speed. Some games require the minimum of 128k. Others only need around 64. A few broadband providers in the nation only offer 128k upload. Hopefully you've got at least 256, and won't ahve any problems.
