I got a two day gold pass and a xbox 360 i also got tmobile broad band internet on my pc so how do i get started with xbox live without an adapter or do i need an adapter

Requires a Router/Switch
(2) ethernet cables

Using your PC as the main Internet Provider, connect one cable from the PC's ethernet jack to the WAN jack/port of a router. Next hook up your XBox to one of the wired 1-4 jacks/ports on the same router with the other ethernet cable.

I am trying to hook my 360 to the wireless internet in my house using a belkin brand wifi antenna hooked into the usb port on my xbox can you help or is this even possible?

I'm not sure if it will work, but if it will, here's the link to configure up your Xbox for wireless.
The Xbox brand adapter works basically the same, so I don't see why it wouldn't work, unless Microsoft specifically took measures to prevent this. You may also have some security settings on your router that are preventing connection. I personally prefer to connect via Ethernet cable to reduce lag potential, but, to each their own.

Cant connect to internet using internet stick

The internet stick you have would be a USB device which is not supported by Xbox 360, you can connect to Xbox 360 wirelessly or through a wired connection

One way of connecting wireless internet is through the ethernet cable to a laptop paired with your wireless router, or you would have to buy a Wi-Fi adapter for Xbox 360 which retails around $90.

Since Xbox 360 does not have a software like a PC, it is unable to recognize the USB internet stick you have as a internet connection, it may probably end up showing it up just as a USB device on the system settings menu on the Xbox 360 dashboard

Blackout in my house, Xbox 360 ethernet port broken!

All the message means is it can't find the internet, so your internet must have went down.. your systems should still be working fine. I don't know much about using usb for ethernet, but that sounds like it would work no problem.

Why isnt my xbox connecting? i plugged the cble into the rouder and then put the other cable into the xbox and its not letting me connect.

To make a router connection to Xbox Live:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
  8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.
