To connect to Xbox Live, you will need a wired Ethernet cord plugged into the back of your Xbox console. If you are using a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, you have to plug it in into the back of your Xbox located to the bottom left from flat on the ground. Also make sure you have a strong enough connection on your internet, and router/modem. Make sure your Xbox console is close enough to your router or modem as well. Also attempt to reset your connection and modem/router and see if this works. 1 or 2 bars are to low for Xbox Live gameplay. 3 or 4 bars are just quite enough. I hope this helped, just contact me if you have further questions or problems!
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft xbox to
network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link
router to go along with your broadband connection and xbox Live
subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries
from around the world.
The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband
Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests
for compatibility with Microsoft xbox Live with specific firmware. Just
download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link
router before connecting to xbox Live.
just to elaborate on zombies post..... Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms......... you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' . The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong slot....an ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)
hope this is a little easier to understand ??
p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated ! the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !
p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !
Do u have the wireless jump in the xbox? It is about 100 dollars, or u can plug it in and see if it works then. The xbox does not come with a wireless card, you have to buy it seperately. I have mine plugged in to the modem and my computers are wireless, It was cheaper that way.
if you plug the computer into the usb port a box will come up and you register it as for the adapter get the one for the xbox plug it in and go to the dashboard then console setting then xbox live connection then test connection and if it doesnt work try the linksys one or the wired one.
i had this exact problem. the reason mine wasn't working was because the security settings for my wireless router were set on wp2a and the xbox 360 can't pick this up. change your wireless router security to wpa and you should be fine...after i did this it saw my network and i was fine
if you dont have a router, you can either have the xbox or the pc conneted to the internet, not both. you have to have an eithernet cord or a usb 2.0 high speed usb chord that goes directly from the xbox to the modem. you cannot go from the modem to the computer then to the xbox.
Basically i know its a rip off but if u wanna use wireless with the xbox 360 u need to buy the official xbox 360 wireless router which is about £60.There is another way if u dont use wireless u can connect the xbox 360 to a router or the phone line then go to your windows firewall and set it up manually.Hope this can help you .Joe stevenson
