Internet


First you need an internet connection, wireless or network cable.
For wireless:
You need the XBox 360 wireless adaptor.
Follow instructions to plug it in, then turn on console.
Go to the Dashboard.
Go to Console Settings.
Then Network Settings.
Then Search for a Network.
When you find your network, select it.
If you have a network code, such as WEP, enter it when prompted.
Now, whenever you turn on your XBox and have the wireless adaptor plugged in, it will automatically connect to your network.

For cable:
Plug in the cable to your console at the back.
Then follow above steps if it doesn't automatically connect you.

To play with mates, you need to purchase an XBox Live Gold Membership.
To do this, you must create an account after connecting to the internet.
To create an account:
Dashboard
Create Account
It will ask you to set up XBox Live and to pick a name.
Pick your name and connect it with a Windows Live account such as hotmail.
Follow steps to input information.
Payment can be automatic to a credit card number or, you can purchase XBox Live Membership Cards at most electronic stores, and input the codes.
You get one month free trial just for signing up.

Now to play:
Find out your friends' gamer tags or XBox Live name just as you made yours.
Push the XBox Guide button in the middle of your controller.
Select Friends.
At the top, add friends.
Input their gamer tag.
When they accept your invite/request, you can invite them to chats and games.

Pick your game, follow the instructions to play a multi-player game over XBox Live with your friends.
Have fun.

Cant chat to 1 of my freinds on xbox live


What is their internet connection speed?

Your friend may not have port forwarding on their home network and the network router filters the Internet NAT redirection...

Setting up a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on the router for the Xbox gives it unrestricted access to the internet; also puts your Xbox outside you routers firewall.

DMZ ports have to be programmed manually and the IP address also must be manually entered; The DHCP Automatic IP address puts the Xbox back behind the firewall; just duplicate the automatic DNS Server settings and the Netmask. Then choose a IP address outside the Automatic IP range (e.g. 192.168.1.175)

If that does resolve the issue see if the other Xbox needs a Live Update.

Not letting me except game invites on xbox live


The unable to connect problem is because NAT problems with your router, you'll have to configure your router and the NAT firewall to accept any income to you local network. Depending of the model of your router you'll have to use a computer to connect to you router and then configure it, so you can disable the firewall or put it to minimun.

Having problems connecting with friends when playing xbox live


Okay I didn't read every post but here is what you need to fix the dreaded BS on not being able to connect to friends.....The DMZ on your wireless router needs to be enabled and the IP address of your DMZ needs to be that of your Xbox 360. Go on your settings in your xbox and go under network settings and look at the IP address, put that exact IP address in your DMZ address setting on your wireless router settings. Make sure its enabled and the IP address is EXACTLY what it says on your xbox network settings. That should solve it all. That bypasses all your security for the xbox. Might want to put the UPNP on enable too. So the DMZ and the UPNP are both settings on your wireless router. If you have linksys its 192.168.1.1 or the linksys voice 192.168.15.1...... Try them both in your address bar, of course one at a time and DO NOT PUT www. JUST PUT 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.15.1 It should pull up a password screen and both username and pw are admin if you did not already change them. If you don't have linksys then just go online and find out how to change the settings on the router u have. This should solve it all and get you back online and rocking and rolling. Now you must do the same with your PS3 if you are having the same problems. Give me feedback on if it works. You can hit me up on xbox at BKM80. Good luck

Can't communicate online


router.. if you are behind a router you have to open up ports on the router.

you might try hooking the xbox up directly to your cable modem or DSL modem first to confirm this is the issue.
