Ok so my dad is going to get me a wireless bridge but i tested out my 360 at a friends house with a router near his TV. It worked, and i created my account(through the trial version of gold, circuit city gave me 13 months free but i cant find it...) and i tried some halo 2 online. Unfortunately, i was new to it, and all i had were quickmatch and another thing. I tried joining all and they said i didnt have the maps. I tried downloading them, and they took AGES... i mean in like 10 minutes it moved an inch of like 1 meter. He has relatively slow internet, but how much storage and time do those maps take to download? And am i supposed to get a map problem? I thought those downloadable maps were OPTIONAL?
