First you need an internet connection, wireless or network cable.
For wireless:
You need the XBox 360 wireless adaptor.
Follow instructions to plug it in, then turn on console.
Go to the Dashboard.
Go to Console Settings.
Then Network Settings.
Then Search for a Network.
When you find your network, select it.
If you have a network code, such as WEP, enter it when prompted.
Now, whenever you turn on your XBox and have the wireless adaptor plugged in, it will automatically connect to your network.

For cable:
Plug in the cable to your console at the back.
Then follow above steps if it doesn't automatically connect you.

To play with mates, you need to purchase an XBox Live Gold Membership.
To do this, you must create an account after connecting to the internet.
To create an account:
Dashboard
Create Account
It will ask you to set up XBox Live and to pick a name.
Pick your name and connect it with a Windows Live account such as hotmail.
Follow steps to input information.
Payment can be automatic to a credit card number or, you can purchase XBox Live Membership Cards at most electronic stores, and input the codes.
You get one month free trial just for signing up.

Now to play:
Find out your friends' gamer tags or XBox Live name just as you made yours.
Push the XBox Guide button in the middle of your controller.
Select Friends.
At the top, add friends.
Input their gamer tag.
When they accept your invite/request, you can invite them to chats and games.

Pick your game, follow the instructions to play a multi-player game over XBox Live with your friends.
Have fun.

Cannot keep connection to internet, using linksys. pc works and x360 works. PS3 keeps crappin' out!


maybe the problem is that you have many systems retrieving internet access at once and it doesn't let the Playstation hook up, did you try it with an ethernet cable?

Update failed


Hi,

There is something wrong with either your network settings on the X360 or the router/modem.

The easiest way to solve this is to download the update and install it via disc, then restore factory defaults(Initail setup) on the X360 and also reset your router/modem and if you are using a router then set the X360 in DMZ mode on the router by entering the IP address of the X360 in the router settings, this will give you FULL access to the internet for updates and gaming without being stuck behind a firewall.

Thanks

The xbox states that we have a connection and when finished with the systems check goes to load an update but fails and then xbox live fails. I am using a cox cable modemn to the dlink 624. works on...


Hi,

Give your X360 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the X360, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The X360 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Thanks
