Why can't i play on black ops multiplayer online they said Notice:your profile not alowed something like that but i can do other stuff with live


Do you know what type of xbox live you are currently subscribed to?
If you pay a monthly rate or have used a pre-paid card you have access to xbox live gold.
If you do not pay anything, which may be the case, you most likely have xbox live silver.
You can still maintain a friends list and do certain limited activities with silver, however if you would like to engage in multiplayer online for almost any game you will need xbox live gold.

Still not sure?

If you go to xbox.com and sign in using your gamertag. Mouse over your avatar and see if you have a gold background or silver background. Good luck!

How do you get xbox live connections


you need to sign up with xbox live on the xbox console , you need a wireless adapter plugged in and connected to your wireless or a ethernet cable from the xbox to the router. Then just sign up for xbox live , you will receive a 1 month free trial of xbox live gold which will allow you to play people online, after the month trial you either pay for it or you are demoted to xbox live silver

Does the new xbox 360 gaming system give a free trial of the live internet access or do you have to purchase live immedieately. And is the firmare update a onetime thing, or do you have to perform this...


Hi, to answer your questions, 1 you will have to pay for xbox live you can get top up cards from most video games shops or you can pay by card, you dont have to purchase live at all if you dont plan on playing massive multi player on line games such as call of duty etc etc, you can still play these games as normal on your xbox but you can get to play other players online via the live network if you plan on challenging other players around the live network if your into playing massive online player games, you also get some bonus levels via live but these are not needed if you dont want to use live.

i have got an xbox 360 and all i use it for is playing the games as they come ive never needed to use it online as im happy enough just playing the games as they are.

now for the updates, you can either go through the live network to get the firmware updates or certain games come with the updates on them so if you dont want to use live then the xbox will update from a game, it is not something you need to do with every live game but as microsoft bring out new patches to get round bugs in their software or a new feature your xbox needs to play a certain game well you will either be sent the update via the live network if your planning on using the network or when you buy certain games the xbox will update from the game, the updates come out say every 6 months to 12 months so its not something you need to do all the time and its not something you need to be worried about because if you buy a game that needs your xbox updating then this game will update the firmware without you having to go on live network.

please let me know if you have any other questions or problems.

will give you some advice though, when you get the xbox please make sure the air vent at the bottom end of the xbox as if its lying flat, at one end you have the hard drive if it comes with one or if you buy one but the other grey plastic panel at the other end is an air vent so make sure this is not blocked as it will cause the xbox it over heat in a couple of minutes you will then have the dreaded red ring of death and need to get it sent back for repair so make sure this vent has a good 3 inches of space before anything else as the air is sucked in through this panel and at the back make sure the fans vent is not blocked as this is where the hot air will be blown out.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks

Hi i am trying to conect to xbox live but it keeps telling me that i cant conect to xbox live


Judging by the picture, I am assuming you have an original xbox. The last time I checked, (a couple months ago) there was still xbox live for the original xbox, but it is a pay service that you need to go online, and setup an account and pay for the service.
Then you will have the info the xbox is asking for when you try to sign in.

No connection through ethernet cable


you have to pay for xbox live. If you do not pay for xbox live then you cant get the internet for your xbox 360. Its one thing i hate about having an xbox. Hence the reason for me getting the playstation 3. I hope this has helped.

I am unable to sign into to my live account?


Have you clicked test connection and have it tell you why it cant connect?? If it cant connect to the xbox Live and its not a connection problem, Live might be down, you could be banned, there may be an update you need. Most of the time you cant connect there may be a temporary maintenance for live. If you still cant connect call xbox customer support and ask about your account.

Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360


Hello there.

On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

With Xbox Live Silver you can:
  • Create an online Gamer Profile
  • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
  • Engage in voice and text messaging
  • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
  • Receive video messages from Gold level members
  • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

  • Play multiplayer games online
  • Video chat
  • Multiplayer online tournaments
  • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
Hope this clarifies things for you.

Voice issue


never had that problem but then i didn't use xbox live, xbox connect and xlink kai were my choices mostly because they were free, the only thing i can suggest is to make sure all the parental controls are turned off and if your using a router make sure all/any ports needed by the xbox live service are forwarded, other than that try a different headset maybe, thats about all i can suggest.
