How do u connect an an xbox 360 to xbox live


You need either a blue Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox to an internet outlet or a wireless router. If you use the wireless router, hook it up to your computer so it broadcasts a signal, then, depending on what Xbox you have, if its the new 360 slim you won't need a wireless adapter, you search for the signal, then connect it. If you don't have the 360 slim, then you need to buy a wireless adapter and it plugs into the back of the Xbox.

How to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet


Hello,

In this guide I will go over how to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet either via wired or wireless connection.

Wireless Connection

*For a wireless connection you need a wireless access point(router) and either a Xbox with built in wifi adapter or purchase a xbox wireless adapter*

-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings"
-Select "Network Settings"
-Select the name of your wireless network.
If you do not see your network, select "Advanced options" then select "Specify unlisted Network" then enter your network name.
-
Enter your wireless network security key. It may prompt you to update your console, select yes.

Wired Connection

*For a wired connection you need to use an Ethernet cable and plug one end into the back of your xbox and the other end into your router or cable modem.*

-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings"
-Select "Network Settings"
-Select "Test Xbox Live Connection", afterwards it may prompt you to update your console, select yes.

Now, you are connected to the internet and can enjoy xbox live.

Regards,
G33k

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

I bought a new DSL-2642B Wireless Router and Modem but it won't let me connect to Xbox Live, the solution that the Microsoft Solution thingy game me was to change the MTU settings, any idea of how to...


In order to connect to Xbox Live with a Wireless Modem and Router, you will need a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter. You can get a Xbox Wireless Adapter cheap on eBay, or you can buy it Microsoft at Gamestop. http://www.gamestop.com/browse?nav=16k-Xbox+360+Wireless+Adapter
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To find your MTU Settings, follow these steps.
1. Click on 'Start'
2. Click on 'Run...'
3. In the bar, type CMD, and hit enter.
4. A black box should appear. Type "ipconfig" without quotation marks in the field.
5. Your IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway codes should pop up.
6 Go to your internet browser and type you IP Address into the URL box.
7. You should find MTU settings, and you can set them to your desire.

I HAVE A WIRELESS ROUTER DOES MY PC HAVE TO BE WIRELESS BEFORE I CAN CONNECT X BOX LIVE


Your pc doesn't have to be wireless, you should be able to connect to it through your router as long as it is wired in. To connect to xbox live, you either need to get a wireless adapter for your xbox 360 or connect it via ethernet to your router.

You will either need a Wireless Adapter or an Ethernet Cable. Either way a router is also needed.
With the adapter you just need to go to network settings and it should connect.
With the ethernet cable you need to take a few more steps and it will connect.

Turning the xbox 360 into xbox 360 live?


ok, so if you want to do it wirelessly you need to get the wireless network adapter for the 360. i got mine at target for about 100 bucks. You also will need a Xbox live Gold card if you are wanting to play with your friends. you can also get your subcription over the xbox by using a credit card. The setup is pretty simple, just follow the on screan instructions. I am assuming your dashboard uses the "blades". if so, go over to the marketplace section, and go to join xbox live. then it will guide you through the process.

Hope this helps you.

Xbox 360 wireless


There should have been an instruction manual that came with your wireless adapter. But anyways, you may be connected to a password protected router and need to put in the password via the dashboard. I'm pretty sure you would goto network settings and then select the network you'd want to connect to.
