how to connect the 360 to the Live
network. Before you do anything you are going to need to decide
how you plan on connecting the bad boy. The 360 supports both wired and
wireless connections. In order to use a wireless connection you will
need the Xbox 360 Wireless adapter. Personally I find the wireless
connection to be a bit too temperamental for my liking so I go with a
wired connection via a router, but not everyone has the same wireless
experience. To set up the connection via a router unplug the
router and the modem and turn off the 360. Connect an Ethernet cable to
one of the out ports of the preexisting router then connect the cord to
the back of your 360. Plug everything back in and turn and give the
modem and router about 3 minutes to reboot. Once you have given
everything a few minutes to reboot you can turn the 360 back on. If you
have already set up a gamer profile you will see the Xbox Live screen.
If you have not set up an account you will be prompted to do so. All you
need to do is follow the on screen instructions. It is a pretty cut and
dry process and should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
if this happening to you you need to recover the gamertag
1.make sure you are connected to the internet 2.logout/sign out other profiles in the console 3.press the guide button or the silver button in the middle of the controller 4.chose recover gamertag 5.enter the gamertag 6.enter the email and password ( email or windows live ID this is the email you use for the sign up of the gamertag)
Both consoles have advantages.
The Xbox 360 has a vast array of titles and has the biggest fan base of the two. If you connect the console to the internet, you can download games and movies through Xbox Live. You can also connect your PC to your Xbox 360 and use the console as a multimedia center using Windows Media Center.
The PS3 has a blu ray drive as standard, so you can watch blu ray movies through your PS3. DVD's are also upscaled up to 720p to improve the look of your movies. The PS3's online service is free, and allows you to download game demo's and downloadable content for games.
The Xbox 360's disadvantages are the fact you need to pay for access to Xbox Live, roughly £40 per year, but it does guarentee a reliable online service. Also earlier and cheaper models of the Xbox do not support full HD via HDMI.
The PS3 is very expensive and lacks quality titles. The console is also on a 10 year plan, so even though the console will outlast its rivals, it is likely to become outdated.
If you want to watch blu ray films and play games occasionally, go for the PS3. If you want a console with a lot of titles and a reliable online service, get the 360. Of the two I'd choose the 360, but in 2 years or so I might need to reconsider.
if your laptop get a signal than buy a eithernet cable and coonect your xbox 2 the laptop and go 2 your network settings and check the box that say share connection than wait a few mins. and try to connect to xboxlive this should work because thats how i get on xboxlive at my house.
in order for you to get content on your xbox you have to get xbox live its free for the silver member ship which gives you acsses to the marketplace but the gold gives you everything so if you have internet connection get the silver member free then you can get content.
