It should hook up but Xbox live is having a ton of issues basically xboxlive is down and wont be back up for a while. you can go to and search under status then go to support this will let you know when you can connect back up to xbox live.

If you problem isnt with xboxlive then you will need to get a wireless router. Then go through the steps to set up a wireless network and then set your xbox to that wireless network.

If its not a black xbox 360 slim than it doesnt have wirless so you either need a wireless adapter or ethernet cord that will hook up to the modem from the xbox.

If you do not have a router that you can plug directly into the back of the Xbox 360 then yes you will need to purchase a wireless router to sync up with your wireless router that you already have downstairs. You didn't specify if your broadband router had wireless capabilities? Does it? If not then you will need to buy a wireless router to be able to hook up your Xbox 360.

Microsoft has their own personal wireless router that fits on the back of the Xbox 360 nicely. I would recommend you purchase it due to ease of installation and compatability.

Here is a link to an example of what it looks like:

And a cheaper older model:

How do i setup xbox live

First you need to configure you wirless setup with the xbox by accsessing the menu on the xbox console. I dont know who you wirelss provider is or if you even have wireless so im going at this kinda blind. Setting it up can be kinda of trick but not impossible. It may ask you for a network identification code or a network key ect. You must have that in order to configure your xbox to your wireless network. After that it should be smooth sailing.. Now assuming your wirless configuration is a basic wirless router in your home you can also go out from it with an ethernet cable to the xbox but thats a last resort...anyways i hope i was of some help to ya.

Hey, I am a mom with no idea what I need to get to set up xbox live. We have an xbox 360 but have no clue what I need to purchase to have xbox live

first off you need an xbox live subscription to use xbox live. Also I am assuming you have a broadband connection. So the best way is to purchase a router and then hook up your computers and xbox to that router via ethernet cable. Here are two links that should help you:

How do I connect Xbox 360 wirless network up

There are two ways to set up wireless connection to your Xbox 360, and get Xbox LIVE. Now remember, for you to do anything with the wireless connection, you need to buy Xbox LIVE. The company has a 3 month free trail for Xbox LIVE that you can sign up for. Then, when you have that bought, your true experience can begin. If you are fortunate enough that you console location is near your internet router, then you can hook up your 360's internet cord to the back of your router. then you will have to go to your internet configuration and test your connection, and you will have live. The other way is by going to Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or any other game seller and buy something that is called the Xbox 360 wireless connection router. I'm not sure if that is the exact name, but it looks like a pretty small internet router. Then, you hook that up to the front or back of your 360, into one of the many USB ports, and you install it. You may need help and may have to call Xbox 360 customer service. But, those are the two ways to get live.
Please rate.

Thankyou, Good Luck, Noob815
