What is your setup? Are you directly wired to the internet, or wirelessly? Are you having troubles with the internet, or just signing up for live?

I have wireless internet how do i get connect to the xbox 360


Depends if you have an Xbox Elite or an older Xbox 360?
If you have an Xbox Elite then there will be an in- built wireless, For older xbox 360's you will have to go and buy an Xbox wireless adapter.
If you go to settings, network settings, and select connect to xbox live via wireless then you will be prompted to input your security details for your Wireless and you should then be connected via wireless to xbox live.

I am trying to hook up xbox live for the first time. i have a isp windstream and a speedstream 5200 modem. My connection is good verified by windstream but x box cannont connect to the signal. Winstream...


  1. Step 1 Have your Xbox 360 correctly hooked up to television with HDMI or component cables. Turn your television and Xbox on. Make sure your television is on the correct input. Make sure that your WIndstream DSL Modem is on. If you have a router, make sure that it is on.
  2. Step 2 Obtain the security key for your wireless network, and write this key down. You will need this key to allow the Xbox 360 to have wireless access to the Internet. If you do not know where to find your wireless network key, you will have to access the security setup of your router. The way to do this varies by model, so check your user's manual to see how. If you don't plan on using the Xbox Wireless Adapter for your Xbox, you may skip this step.
  3. Step 3 Run a network cable (Ethernet) from your router or directly from the modem to the Xbox 360. Once you have this cable plugged in you will have to access the "My Xbox" tab on your dashboard. Go to the "System Settings" portion of the tab, usually the last portion on the right, and access network settings. For wired setups, go to the "Configure Network" option and make sure both the "IP Settings" and "DNS Settings" are set to automatic.
    For wireless setups, you will need to have the Xbox Wireless Adapter plugged into the Xbox. Under the Network Settings, enter the security key that you obtained earlier to allow access to the Internet and Xbox Live.
  4. Step 4 Create an account on Xbox Live. You will need to either have a credit card or an Xbox Live subscription card. You can purchase Xbox Live cards at your local game retailer. You will be asked to enter information and create a user name called a "Gamer Tag." This is the name that you will be known as in the x-box community hope this help you out

My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing


things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to www.xbox.com and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there

I just bought an xbox i got wireless adaptor, how come i cant sign up for online it says ''cant cannect xbox live select test connection to trouble shoot your connection''


(These instructions are vague because they are from memory, so sorry if they are not very clear)
Go to Console Settings, then go to Network Settings, then click A on the first thing that comes up, continue clicking A until it returns you to network settings. Then try to connect to Xbox Live again, if you still can't connect, then the xbox 360 console is not close enough to your internet source, or you don't have a wireless internet connection.

Hope this helps!

Firewall settings blocking internet from Live. I know which ports need to be open, but i dont know how to open them (I have a U.S Robotics router)


You must do port forwarding now to resolve the firewall problem. Call xbox on what port you must forward on the router's admin page for the xbox live. If I remember it correctly, xbox live uses port 3074 TCP and UDP, 88 TCP and UDP, 53 TCP and UDP, 80 TCP and UDP
