How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?


Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.

  • Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    My ps3 wont connect to my friends

    The problem is your internet is not good enough to host or join their game. There is probably some type of connection problem or their game is full. Hope this helps.

    On xbox 360 whenever I am host for a multiplayer game all other users are disconnected but I am in game, wait 20 seconds for everyone to forfeit or just leave the game has the same effect next. After...

    The xbox 360 requires several ports to be forwarded to it in order for it to completly establish hosted connections. Less ports are required if you are simply playing on somebody elses connection. The ports below need to be forwarded to your xbox. It is easier to control if you give your xbox a static ip address. You will have to look up your router to figure out how to forward ports to a specific ip address. Good luck.

    • TCP 80
    • UDP 88
    • UDP 3074
    • TCP 3074
    • UDP 53
    • TCP 53

    It says :"you have been disconnected from online servers"

    There can be particular issues related
    to playing through a router or firewall,
    including sharing your internet
    connection via another PC. In order to
    join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
    game from behind a firewall you must
    open the following ports (inbound and

    UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
    13139, 27900

    TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
    29900, 29901, 29920

    To host a game from behind a router
    with NAT (Network Address
    Translation), or a firewall, you will
    need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
    the following ports to route data to the
    IP address of your PC;

    UDP ports 4658, 6500

    TCP port 4658

    If you continue to have problems
    connecting to servers or creating
    them, try bypassing your router or
    firewall by connecting your PC directly
    to your broadband connection.

    Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers which are needed for connecting to any internet server.

    Cant have private chat or play games with friends

    This should solve your problem

    For most devices that use NAT, port forwarding is not required to connect to Xbox Live. This is especially true if you use an Xbox Live certified device. Sometimes, you may have to configure port settings on a non Xbox Live certified router or gateway.

    If there is a firewall device between the Xbox console and the network device, you may have to configure the firewall to enable communication on specific network ports. If the NAT status in the Network Status area of the Dashboard is "moderate" or "strict," you may have to configure port settings.

    The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
    � UDP 88
    � UDP 3074
    � TCP 3074

    To open the ports on your router see this handy website here,

    which gives you a step by step guide.

    Before opening the ports you must give your Xbox 360 a static IP address (manual) be sure to use an IP address that no other item on your network is using and is fairly high up in your range, for example if your router's address is then you should use something like 192.168.10 for your Xbox 360.

    You can also enable DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on your router, which will open up all the ports to your Xbox 360, however NEVER use this on a PC's IP, see your router's manual on how to do this.

    Once the correct ports are open for your Xbox 360, then your NAT should say open.
