I've finally got round to looking at playing online with my jtagged xbox only to find that there doesn't seem like there is that many people online to actually play with (and i didnt realize how few games don't have system link)
Now i wasn't expecting xbox live numbers but i was hoping there would be a fair few active players...
So my question is, does anyone still use xlink, is there an alternative or is the only option xbox live?

I've installed XBConnect but haven't used it, just really trying to find out which is popular as i'd like to get a few games in
I guess you're planning on playing Xbox 360 games? Otherwise Halo 2 is extremely popular. Suggest you get the 30 ping limit remover patch, here. Call of Duty; Modern Warfare 2 is popular on the 360 I believe.

My buddies and I play all the time on Xlink. I love it and have been playing on there for years. I do kinda wish there were more people playing these days, there are so man great games that it supports that are never played. Halo Reach (brand new game), Blur (Excellent racing title), L4D 1 and 2, Borderlands and a hell of a lot more great games that never see any action. MW2 and Halo 2 is pretty much it, so you better have a lot of jtag'd friends if you want to play anything else. I really don't understand why this is and has been for years, perhaps it'ts the lack of matchmaking for these games and people just don't want to sit around waiting for others to join. I think XBConnect tried something like this and probably never got used. I thought about writing some matchmaking tunneling s/w with a better UI, but just never had the time.

I could never get it to work, all the arenas had a "?" beside them for number of players. Did some searching online and was able to fix it, only to find out there was only like 2 arenas in TOTAL and both were private.
I feel like im still doing something wrong but I can't be bothered, I have XBL anyway.

I've used it and play with some friends on it from time to time, but as most have said there's not a lot of people on it to begin with, plus it can be a pain to initially set up. That being said, with rgh making it possible for more people to have homebrew units and the fact that FSD will incorporate a full version, I'm hoping it will become more popular in the near future.
