Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Turning the xbox 360 into xbox 360 live?

We have the xbox working but we seem unable, as we simply don't know, what we need and are required to do to make our xbox live via a wireless connection.

My pc is too far away for the cable and we are using a vodafone netgear wireless connection to my pc which has 4 spare wired connector points.

The router is a Netgear 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem router DG834GSP v3

Ok, so if you want to do it wirelessly you need to get the wireless network adapter for the 360. i got mine at target for about 100 bucks. You also will need a Xbox live Gold card if you are wanting to play with your friends. you can also get your subcription over the xbox by using a credit card. The setup is pretty simple, just follow the on screan instructions. I am assuming your dashboard uses the "blades". if so, go over to the marketplace section, and go to join xbox live. then it will guide you through the process.

Hope this helps you.

Dont know how to set up xbox live


First you need to have a Windows Live ID email address, you can link any email address to Windows Live so you don't need to create a new one.

Second, you need to get on your Xbox console and select connect to Xbox Live, follow the instructions and you should be good to go.

Systems need up dating disc


You're Xbox 360 does not need a specific disc to update. When you log into Xbox Live, and your system needs an update, it will usually give you the choice to update, or not, but you don't need a disc to do so. To sign up for Xbox Live, access the Sign Up feature on your Xbox Dashboard. You can also sign up for Xbox Live at the following link http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/joinlive

Xbox Live does cost money.

Got a game the other day the xbox 360 will not let us play it keeps coming up the game requires an update please can you tell me what that means


Means you system needs an update. Connect you xbox to xbox live. If you don't have an account thats alright silver access will work for this. I was going to type it out but found this and thought be easier for you to use just go to this site:http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx. Let me know if it works. Also if you cant do this there is a way to update through burned cd or flash drive both of which you can find instructions form the same site but xbox live is much faster and easier.

Heey i just bought a new xbox 360 slim 250gb and my network connection is fine but when it prompts me the update the update keeps failing and ive tried everything on xbl support but nothings working please...


Hey there,

This is likely a problem with your network connection in which it is unable to connect to XBOX Live. I would need to know the make and model of your router to go into further detail on this, so all I can provide you with is some general information to help resolve the issue.

Go to this website and select the router you are connected to: http://portforward.com/
Skip the Advertisement if it pops up, then select Xbox Live 360. Follow the instructions to set up the proper ports for your router.

If that doesn't work, try plugging in your 360 with an Ethernet Cable, directly to the modem, then download the update.
Let me know if that works :)

Xbox 360 update


Hi,
i,m assuming that you have a hard-drive, and this is a premium x-box 360 ?
it,ll only work with the hard-drive attached.
If you go to xbox.com theres all the information you need there.
you have 3 options. 1 is to update via x-box live.
2. you can download the file, and burn the image.
3. order a disk via mail.
If you have any problems, obtaining the CD. please leave me your e-mail address here.
And i,ll send you 1 FREE Of charge.
If you don,t have a hard-drive. thats definately the problem.

Xbox not reading game


I don't know if this will help anyone, but I have tried a variety of things that occasionally have worked. Eject disk and pop it back in and then restart 360. Sometimes may require doing this a couple of times. If that doesn't work, try unplugging that thing in back with the orange light and replug it. Or simply, as it worked for my brother, just turn the 360 off and unplug the orange light thingy and don't play again until maybe a week or month, etc. He unplugged it for about 3 weeks and then it worked perfectly again. Sometimes the 360 just needs a little break. Even though this may be impossible for most to leave it alone for even a day, but its either you or your 360. make it live again!
