You Must Have Internet Access
To Set up an account on xboxlive
First you need to have a valid and active email address that need to associate to windows live,it is a requirement for every xbox's account online,but if you have a email yet,no need to worry because windows live can be a email,note if you have hotmail,live or MSN email no need to register the email for windows live because these are microsoft services,now for those who are not please follow these easy steps:

1. login to www.live.com on a computer
2. click on sign up
3. for those who havent got any email yet you can create an email but for those who has email already and they want to use their own personal email please click the link that say: " Or Use your own e-mail address ".
4.please provide your information,and also please provide a alternate email address,now for those who don't have a alternate e-mail address,please click the link that say: " Or choose a security question for password reset". This is for requesting of password reset just in case you forgotten the password for the email.

Now, if you have done these steps,let's proceed in creating an account.
on your xbox 360 please go to the dashboard screen and go to " my xbox" option and then select profile as you can see there is shadow figure of a person but soon after you created a profile that shadow figure will be a yourself cartoon.then select join xbox live,it will ask for name and profile name,note name is different from your profile name,profile name is also called gamertag,this will be your name on every game that you will played online and offline,then it will ask for your e-mail and password and it will also ask you to choose a membership rate note you need a credit card for this,but for those who has a prepaid card gold subscription,please select you are not interested (I'll include the instruction on the last part) then it will ask you to create a avatar,remember the shadow figure that you see on your screen before you create an account,this will be it,so you will design your avatar the way you want to be after you create the account you now have a xbox live account.

For those who use prepaid subscription,once you have created the account please follow these simple steps:
1.press the guide button (silver button on the controller)
2.go to "Marketplace" blade
3.select the option "redeem code"
4. Enter the 25 prepaid code
then there you have a gold subscription/membership,

Now,if your have hard time redeeming the code,please go to the website www.xbox.com,then sign in (sign in logo can be seen at the upper part of the website in line with marketplace),once you have sign in,click the marketplace link,once it open you will see my account option,hi-light the my account and you will see a option for redeem code,you can redeem the code here.

Thanks!

How do i set up live


In order to set up an xbox live account you need a few things. First is an internet connection to the Xbox itself. Secondly is an email account, as you need this to set up the live account. Third is an Xbox live subscription for gold if you intend to play games online. When you set up your account, you will be allotted 1 month free of gold subscription, after that, you can buy gold subscription cards at walmart, or kmart, or radio shack. An Xbox live silver subscription is free and allows you to download game content and movies and such, but not play games online. When you connect your box to the internet, you sign in with your profile and your then already on an xbox live silver subscription. You can upgrade to gold again buy either buying a gold card, and entering the code, by redeeming your code through, there is a tab after you push the dashboard button. Or you can choose to put in your credit card information, and have it charge you monthly, three months, or even yearly!

How to set up Xbox LIVE for beginners.


First of all, you need either a valid credit card, or a prepaid Xbox LIVE card.

Alright, now you need high speed internet that uses an Ethernet cord to bridge your connection. Plug into the back of your console. (There is a gray Ethernet cord supplied with most Xbox's.)
dcf17d7.jpg
Plug it into where the "Ethernet cable" arrow is pointing, the bottom port. The top one is an USB port.

Now, go to your dashboard and go to your setting. (All the way to the right on your main dashboard channel) Run a connection test to verify that you have a connection to Xbox LIVE. If everything good, then let's move on.

Press the center guide button on your controller and choose "Join Xbox LIVE". Have your valid credit card and/or your prepaid Xbox LIVE card ready. Put in all of your personal details. Once you have all of your personal details and preferences filled out, then you're done!

!!!IMPORTANT!!! IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILD OR WHOEVER IS USING THIS TO CHARGE A LOT OF MONEY TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BUYING MICROSOFT POINTS, WHICH IS MICROSOFT CURRENCY ON THE XBOX FOR THE MARKETPLACE, THEN DON'T INSERT YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER, JUST USE A PREPAID CARD!

I am trying to hook up xbox live for the first time. i have a isp windstream and a speedstream 5200 modem. My connection is good verified by windstream but x box cannont connect to the signal. Winstream...


  1. Step 1 Have your Xbox 360 correctly hooked up to television with HDMI or component cables. Turn your television and Xbox on. Make sure your television is on the correct input. Make sure that your WIndstream DSL Modem is on. If you have a router, make sure that it is on.
  2. Step 2 Obtain the security key for your wireless network, and write this key down. You will need this key to allow the Xbox 360 to have wireless access to the Internet. If you do not know where to find your wireless network key, you will have to access the security setup of your router. The way to do this varies by model, so check your user's manual to see how. If you don't plan on using the Xbox Wireless Adapter for your Xbox, you may skip this step.
  3. Step 3 Run a network cable (Ethernet) from your router or directly from the modem to the Xbox 360. Once you have this cable plugged in you will have to access the "My Xbox" tab on your dashboard. Go to the "System Settings" portion of the tab, usually the last portion on the right, and access network settings. For wired setups, go to the "Configure Network" option and make sure both the "IP Settings" and "DNS Settings" are set to automatic.
    For wireless setups, you will need to have the Xbox Wireless Adapter plugged into the Xbox. Under the Network Settings, enter the security key that you obtained earlier to allow access to the Internet and Xbox Live.
  4. Step 4 Create an account on Xbox Live. You will need to either have a credit card or an Xbox Live subscription card. You can purchase Xbox Live cards at your local game retailer. You will be asked to enter information and create a user name called a "Gamer Tag." This is the name that you will be known as in the x-box community hope this help you out

Want to set xbox on line havnt got a clue


If you have an original Xbox the online capability is obsolete and will no longer be supported by Microsoft if you have an Xbox 360 you need to purchase an xbox live account either at a retail location or online through your xbox dashboard (internet and credit card required). You need to connect a network cable to the back of the xbox the other end to your router or modem to access Xbox live. They also sell a wireless network adaptor for the 360 that you can use instead of a wired connection.

Old (Original) Xbox - Live Account


You will have to purchase a subscription code
I'm not sure if you can get them at retail stores, but they are available on Ebay. Don't get the ones that state theya re for xbox live gold membership.
You can also get the xbox live starter pack which includes 3 months xbox live and a headset (that is if you can still find them, again ebay is a great starting place)
That's how I did it.
Happy gaming
