You need to connect the cable to an internet modem or to a router. you dont conect the xbox to the computer.

The cable is suposed to have both ends exactly the same. the reason why you cant't fit it in your computer is becase you probably allready have a cable with internet connection going to the computer, so connect the cable going to the computer to the xbox or get a router an connect that cable to the router and then get two more cables to go to the computer and other one to the xbox

    sorry the firs solution was for somebody else.



    Just get an internet connection to your xbox, just like you would to your computer. If you alredy have one, go to the tab that says xbox live on your dash board.



    Then click on the xbox live box that's there.

    then on "join Xbox live"

    after that just follow the directions on the screen.

My xbox live is not working and my connection to the internet is on


Do you have an Xbox Live Gold Membership? To get Xbox Live you have to buy the membership, that's why a lot of people go with PS3 because you don't have to pay a monthly bill. But if you do have a gold membership. Press the Xbox button that has a big green X on your controller and then go to settings. Go to system settings, then go to network settings and select which connect your xbox is connect and then test your Xbox live connection. Hope this helps!

    My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing


    things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to www.xbox.com and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there

    Password on famliy setting for xbox live preowed console


    From the XBox website:


    Managing Xbox LIVE Activity
    Xbox LIVE Controls come into play only when you take Xbox 360 online, and they're linked to a child's profile and gamertag. When an Xbox LIVE account is created, the service asks for the member’s age to determine whether to apply Family Settings to that account.
    Parents are also required to create or use an existing Windows Live ID. The Windows Live ID is associated with the child’s Xbox LIVE account and protects the settings from being changed later by the child. To change a child’s settings, first select the child’s account name and connect to Xbox LIVE. Once signed in, enter your Windows Live ID password to unlock the settings.
    To see these controls, go to My Xbox, open System Settings, then selectFamily Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.
