It sounds like you are running through a router. The password will be from the router and not xbox live. If you know the password to access the internet from your pc through the router .. it will be the same for your xbox live.

Who do i get in contact with wen i forgot my microsoft password to my xbox 360


Although you can sign into Xbox LIVE without the need for your LIVE password, you cannot add Microsoft points or buy games without entering your LIVE account information.

All Xbox LIVE accounts are tied into your Microsoft Windows Live account. If you forgot your Windows Live email and password, you can reset your password, but not your email.

Since your email was used to register you to the LIVE network, you had to have used a legitimate email address when you signed up.

Visit the Windows Live login page (see Link Below).
https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=11&ct=1294394625&rver=6.1.6206.0&wp=SAPI&wreply=https://account.live.com/&lc=1033&id=38936

Click "Sign in." Click the "Forgot your password?" link.
Select "I forgot my password" and "Reset your password."


Enter the email address you think you used for Xbox LIVE. Continue entering email addresses that you've used in the past.

Once you enter the correct one, a new page will appear.
You can guess your email as many times as you want.

Select "Email me a reset link."
Click "Next."

Open the email account you send the password to.
If you forgot your password to that email, use the email client's password recovery tool.

Open the "Xbox LIVE" email and click on the provided link.
The link will redirect you to the password reset page.

Enter your new password twice.
Click "Next."

Turn on your Xbox 360 and sign into your Xbox LIVE profile. You should be able to enter your new information to log on to your account and access anything on Xbox LIVE, such as buying a game.

How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.
    2. Enter your wireless network password and select Done.
    3. The console will automatically try connecting to Xbox LIVE. If you get an error message, go to the following webpage for help: support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx)

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article: 977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  6. Select Scan for Networks.
  7. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article: 909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Were do you get wep or wpa trying to hook up xbox 360 to my wireless router


You need to configure the wireless networking component of the router:
* pick a network-name ('SSID'),
* pick an encryption-level (preferably 'WPA'),
* pick a network-password.

Then, configure your XBOX to use that SSID/password, to connect to your router.

My son can't connect to x box live, it keeps asking for the wpa key, what is this and where do I get it from?


Your WPA key is simply put, the password that protects your internet. (Wi-Fi Protected Access). I'm assuming you have a wireless internet and that is how your son is connecting to Xbox Live? (Unless he is mistakenly connecting to another wireless network other than your own.)
Someone in your household should know what the WPA key is, because it was the password set to protect your internet. (Most likely done so on a PC or laptop.)
So here are my suggestions:
1. Make sure your son is connecting to the right wirless network on his Xbox. You can do this by going to Settings --> System Settings --> Network Settings --> Configure Network --> Clicking A once you get to that Menu, and then scanning for Networks. Chances are you will get a few results. In order to connect to Xbox Live, you have to chose your wireless network.
2. If no one in your household knows the WPA key, I would suggest contacting who ever set up your internet, or another option would be to connect to Xbox Live directly, using the modem cable. (You would have gotten this when you originally bought the Xbox.) This can get pretty complicated however, so I would suggest trying to figure out the WPA key.

I hope I was of some help, feel free to contact me if you're still confused.

XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router


I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.

I bet this helps!
