It's real simple: This is the way we have it at my house and I have two xbox's on the network.

First get your wireless router: D-Link about 100.00 U.S.

If you want your xbox to run a little faster I would make your Pc wireless as well and hve your DSL modem closer to your Xbox but you do not have to do that if you have the wireless router hook it up to your modem along with your PC . You will have to get the Xbox wireless router if you do not want wires. it's pretty good and the same price as some of the other brands I don't exactly know the spects but its good enough.
Its a pretty simple process. The only downfall I've seen so far is it is harder to host any games over 8 people.
hope this helped

Yeah, what they said. The Xbox wireless adapter is $140 CDN. And you'll need an existing wireless network for it to communicate with. (Not sure the price on this.)

As for the subscription, you've got a couple of choices.
1) You can just leave your 2 month trail as is. When the free time is up, it will automatically start billing your card each month.
2) You can buy either a Starter Kit or a Renewal Kit and enter this code into your trail account's billing information. This is much cheaper if you plan to game the full year.
3) You can buy either a Starter Kit or a Renewal Kit and make this a completely new account if you want to change your gamertag. Don't forget to call 1-800-4MYXBOX if you do this and cancell your free trail before they start billing you.
