if you have a usb modem and a laptop it is real easy. I hav been playing xboxlive in nigeria since i move here, but it is not as much fun. your ping or latency is goin to be really high because of the facts that there is no xboxlive in nigeria and nigerian internet aint that good. you will hav to join British or American xboxlive. its sumtimes fustratating. ill give the steps in any case 1) connect xbox 360 to laptop with ethernet cable 2) change ur ip of xbox to 192.168.0.2, and ur pc ip to 192.168.0.1 3) do not do anything to DNS 4) Go to network and sharing center >> manage network connections >> right click on dail up icon >> properties >> click on sharing tabs, and check all blocks. click apply ok and what not 5) try to connect to xbox live, it wont work right away, so try and try 6) if u hav any problems, search it on google NOTE: Thins is for Windows Vista and Windows 7
unless a 360 has a modem built into it, you're gonna need one. also, you may need to set up an Xboxlive account to do ANYTHING. check your settings on the console as well to make sure things are working.
This problem indicates that there is a error with your account. I suggest going to http://www.xbox.com/ and seeing if you can log in there. From there you should be able to access accounts and billings. Make sure your account is up to date. If it is not then do so and test xboxlive connection once more.
This should help please post if it does not.
if you are connecting directly to the modem, then you are going to need to get the dns info from your ISP. If you have a router just put the router address or let it find it automatically. Also check that the router has the right dns settings from the ISP.
