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
If that doesnt work it may be your bandwidth. I have been having issues with my wireless on Live because of having too many things running. Try unplugging the ethernet from some things in your home, or turning off the wireless on your laptops before doing this, just to make sure that's really what's wrong.
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
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.
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.
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.
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,
Play multiplayer games online
Multiplayer online tournaments
Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
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.
