Joining XBox Live

I want to join X box live.

I have connected cable between X box and modem

I get a message saying 'Console Update is available from Xbox live - if you decline you will be signed out of Xbox live ...

So I accept the update

then I get a message
"cant download the update - please test your connection in system network settings and try again"

Then I test the system network settings and eventually all the following are confirmed Network adaptor / IP address / DNS / MTU / ICMP are all confirmed.
Then get message X box live failed

    Yeah, I have the same exact problem. And, of course, the Microsoft and Xbox websites weren't any help.

Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine


If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
  2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
  3. Choose to download the game update.

If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

Cheers!!

Could you tell me in steps how to conect to xbox live


Step 1 Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
  • Step 2 Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
  • Step 3 Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
  • Step 4 Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.

    First off (may sound silly) Make sure you have your Xbox connected upto your Modem via USB or Ethernet, make sure your Xbox is connected to the net by going to the dashboard then select JOIN XBOX LIVE then follow the on-screen instructions

    PS It costs a fee to join/use xbox live :P

    Hope this helps!

    Connection to x box live recken my head


    two things, if you're using a wireless modem, unplug it from console, re-set it and let it connect and sit for a minute. then plug it back into the console. if you have just a regular modem do the same thing. make sure the wire connecting you're box to the modem isn't too long(over 7feet is too long). it wont update if you're not connected to the internet.

    I have my xbox 360 connected to my modem when i try to join xbox live it says i have to update when i try to update it says it cant download the update is there any thing i can do


    yes you should be able to download the update from the xbox live site and burn it to a cd and then put it in your console that way. if not then call up microsoft on 08005871102 and tell them about your problem. they should offer you a reason or a new console.
