How do i hook my xbox up to my computer to get on xbox live?


just to elaborate on zombies post.....
Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms.........
you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' .
The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)

hope this is a little easier to understand ??

p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated !
the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !

p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !

good luck :-)

Can't connect to xbox live. I use a router and i have pc + xbox connected to it. The internet for the pc works fine but the xbox won't connect to live. Anyone know what the problem can be? Thanks for any...

Troubleshoot this problem on xbox. Sometimes you need to leave the xbox360 until the computer has fully loaded and is connected the the internet. It could be the cable your using may have a faulty conenction.

How do i hook up xbox 360 to play xbox live

simplest way: connect the grey network cable that is provided to the back of the xbox360 network port. Connect the other end to your router.

If you dont have a router with sockets on it or your xbox is too far away then you can buy a wireless adaptor from xbox for this, it is an accessory.

once you are connected you need to sign up for an account. You can link this to your email address.

That's all there is to it.

Connection problems

MTU stands for "Maximum Transmission Connection". Some routers and/or network gateways are incompatible with Xbox LIVE, while others may be compatible but merely need to have a setting changed. If you compare your router to the list of routers at the following web address, you can confirm whether or not your hardware has been confirmed as compatible with Xbox LIVE by Microsoft:

Whether or not your hardware is listed as compatible, it would still be a good idea to check your instruction manual for the hardware you are using and see how (if possible) to change the MTU settings. Microsoft suggests that the MTU setting should be 1364. Using untested hardware or hardware not listed as compatible may still work, however, future updates to LIVE may suddenly make your hardware incompatible, as updates to LIVE and the Xbox console are made to work with the specifications of tested and listed compatible routers and gateways.

Getin online for my xbox360

xbox live is pissy.

You need 2 seperate live accounts for each one ot go online.

You can't use one account on both. Their servers know.

Other then that, as long as its hooked into a router and there's no ip conflicts, you shouldn't have a problem.

Dont know how to connect my xbox360 to my computer and go on xbox live

The Xbox doesn't need a computer for Live. You DO need a high speed DSL/cable connection. Here is a quick guide to get you going:

There can be a few different things causing this.

If you can, with your xbox turned off... Unplug your routers power cord for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once your router has started back up, and all cables are in place, turn your xbox on and see if it connects.

There are some routers that are not quite compatible with xbox live, but most newer routers are. There is a list on the xbox support site of compatible routers. Here is a link to that support site for you...

Xbox live

well if you have wireless in your house hold you can or have to get the xbox 360 wireless which cost 100.00 at wal-mart. if you have a router that you can hook up a lan ethernet jack from the router to the back of the 360 that is your better bet. you wont have to worry about getting disconnected or anything like that.

i would sueest buying a 100 foot eithernet cable. this dont run cheap. at staples you looking at 40.00 or so, you can get one on ebay for abour 15 and that cover shipping.

with the 100foot you dont have to worry about were you have to put your 360.

Hey killerblue1, and Guest
It's somewhat a vague question, but I'll try my best to give you some options. I'm going to assume that your friend doesn't have an xbox 360, and you brought yours over to play, so I'm gonna go by that scenerio.

Try this, once you plug in your xbox360 to the network, which I'm assuming you have it set to be Modem --> Router --> Xbox.

Unplug the power from both the router and the modem, leave it unplugged for about 30 seconds, and then plug them back in, starting with the modem.

turn on the xbox, and see if it works for you.

If it doesn't, try this method:

Update the firmware on that router. I had the same issue with my xbox360. It's quite easy to do. Go to the manufacturers website of the router, and just do a search for, 'firmware'. Then, once you download the file, open up the console to your router.

It usually something typed in the browser like,, etc. Login, and update the firmware.

If that doesn't work. Get ahold of sony, maybe even checking their site. They may need some specific ports opened up on the router to allow specific packets to go through the network.

Hope this helps.


PS: If all of this doesn't work, please attempt to test the connection, and post back what step it fails on. It can be easily narrowed down to what is causing the issue if you do.
