Re: having trouble conecting to xbox live xbox 360

Well I've been having problems as well especially with Call Of Duty 4. I'm 14 and I was told its simply the Christmas overload that everyone has gone out and bought the system,games, and xbox live. Give it a month or so and see how it works out. Also, if you have a router, try connected the ethernet cord (if u have one) to the modem may work but dont take my word for it. Also, be sure you have DSL or Comcast. Good Luck.

If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?

The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)

How to setup Xbox Live

You will need some kind of internet connection so you will use either an Ethernet cord or a Wifi adapter. After you connect to the internet through your Xbox 360 you will have a 1 month free Xbox live trial. When the trial ends you will either use an Xbox live silver subscription which doesn't allow you to play games on-line, use Netflix, etc. Otherwise you would need to buy an Xbox live gold pass which is a better deal as you purchase a longer subscription. Thank you

I am trying to get xbox live in my sons room, but my modem and router are located in the living is wireless but i have no clue how this all works

The Xbox 360 does not have a wireless adapter built in. You must connect it through a CAT 5/5e/6 Ethernet cable, or purchase one of the Xbox Wireless Network adapters.

Im wondering how and what i need to connect to xbox live.i have the xbox 360 and the cables to connect it to the power and t.v. what else do i need.and i f i dont have a creidt card how else can i purches...

You will either need a Wireless Adapter or an Ethernet Cable. Either way a router is also needed.
With the adapter you just need to go to network settings and it should connect.
With the ethernet cable you need to take a few more steps and it will connect.

Cannot get wireless router to work with Xbox 360

Does the westell router only have 1 ethernet port, if so a ethernet hub would be better, they can be baught for about £10.
You will need to input your account settings for your broadband conection into your new router for it to work, with this router all you actually need to do is connect it to the 360 with an ethernet cable, if you want to use it wirelessly you need to buy a wireless adapter for the 360 for about £30 - £60 depending where you buy it.

Xbox 360 live on wireless router

In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

Conection inalambric

The XBOX 360 can only be connected via an RJ-45 ethernet wire to the router unless you purchase the wireless adapter. The adapter can be bought at any accessory store such as walmart, Target, Gamestop, etc.
