The only way for you to be able to play XBox LIVE, is to pay for it monthly. So, check and see if you paid, if you have, please call the number on your XBox warrenty. :) I hope this helps.

Also, you need internet in order to play XBox LIVE as well, so you might want to call your providers if you have paid your bill.

Windows Live is a group of services offered by Microsoft on the Internet and through mobile Web browsers. Users can sign up for Windows Live and access all of the services, including a calendar, messenger, social groups and parental controls. When signing up for Windows Live, new users can choose to create a free Live.com email address.

Navigate to the Windows Live sign-up page. https://accountservices.passport.net/reg.srf?bk=1245529554&cru=http://login.live.com/login.srf&sl=1&vv=650&lc=1033 Type a screen name in the "Windows Live ID" box and click "Check Availability" to see if the name is in use. Choose the name carefully as this will be your email address. Choose "live.com" in the drop-down menu next to the "Windows Live ID" box. Fill Out the rest of the information on the sign-up page and click "I Accept" to complete the registration of your live.com email address. Click "Mail" on your profile page to access your new live.com email account. Hope this helps.

I am 14 and was playing xbox live, it shut me offline and when i diagnosed the proble it said my mtu setting need to be at least 1364, how can i fix that?


MTU is the maximum size (in bytes) a protocol is able to send. Not super familiar with xbox but I would check under your network settings. Although I doublt the xbox will allow you to set this. So the next step would be to check your router settings. You will need the following
  • A PC or laptop
  • Ethernet cable
You will need a computer plugged in via ethernet into your router.
  • Open a browser and enter the gateway address in the address bar
  • You can obtain your gateway address by going to a command prompt and typing "ipconfig"
  • Login to your router (if you've never setup the router with a login it will probably be a generic login such as admin/, admin/admin, / or /admin
  • Look for your MTU setting, this is generally under the advanced settings
  • Set it to 1500 if it is not already.
Please comment with how the xbox is connected to your network as well Comment back if you need more assistance
Another cause of xbox live booting you is if someone logs into your xbox live account else where as xbox live only allows for one login at any give time.

Trying to get Xbox live connected...


Follow these steps if you are trying to use a laptop :
1.
Make sure that your XBOX 360 is fully functional and your laptop is connected to the internet by means of a wireless card.
2.
Locate the Ethernet cord and connect it to both the computer and XBOX 360. Don't turn on the XBOX 360 yet.
3.
On your Vista, click "Start" then "Network". After select the tab "Network and Sharing Center." On the left tab, click on "Manage network connections." You will see a Local Area Connection and a Wireless Internet Connection.

Use your mouse to select both icons and right click. Click on Bridge Connections. Turn on your XBOX 360, Sign In, and you will find yourself connected to XBOX LIVE.

I can't connect to xbox live , it tells me to test my connection , its going fine , halfway to through the xbox live bar then an update pops up , if i say i dont want it , it signs me out of xbox live


have you tested the Internet connection? what are you using wireless or wired? this isue comes up sometimes when you use wireless and it looses signal... this can happen if the xbox is too far from the wireless router OR there is interfearence ebtween the 2 devices (microwave, wireless phones, etc.)

I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
Tips:
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need:
  • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)
