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.

  • 2

    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.

  • 4

    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...

    How to set up Xbox Live on 360

      1. Have a subscription of Xbox live, it can be from 8 dollars to 50 dollars, this is required to play live with anyone.
      2. If your Xbox is not located near a router or modem, you would have to buy a wireless network adapter but it can be quite costly($89)
      3. If your Xbox is close to the router or modem, all you have to do is plug an ethernet cable in the modem/router, and the other side on the back of your Xbox or Xbox 360.
      4. Turn on the system and on the dashboard, try to create a Xbox Live account.
      5. There are 2 types of LIVE accounts. One is called SILVER which lets you download demos, chat with friends, download arcade games, download movies and Tv Shows but no muiltiplayer, the other one is called GOLD, which lets you have all the features of SILVER but also lets you play with other people around the world, read step 1 for price.

    To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
    1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
    2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
    3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
    4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
    5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
      • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
      • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
    6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
    7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.

    9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
    10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
    11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

    If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
    1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to to download the firmware for your router.
    2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
    3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
    4. Wait for the router to reboot.

    I have an xbox with xbox live subscribtion and i have sattelite internet. I was told if i got a netgear router i might be able to play xbox live? Is this true?

    Actually, just about any newer router will do the job. You can either connect the Xbox console via the Ethernet port on the back or through the Xbox Wireless Network Adapter which you can find at any video game store.
    The ethenet cable is the cheaper option as it will only cost you about $3 but your Xbox will need to be close to your computer. The WiFi adapter is about $50 and will allow you to use your Xbox 360 on Xbox Live in other rooms of your house.

    Turning the xbox 360 into xbox 360 live?

    ok, so if you want to do it wirelessly you need to get the wireless network adapter for the 360. i got mine at target for about 100 bucks. You also will need a Xbox live Gold card if you are wanting to play with your friends. you can also get your subcription over the xbox by using a credit card. The setup is pretty simple, just follow the on screan instructions. I am assuming your dashboard uses the "blades". if so, go over to the marketplace section, and go to join xbox live. then it will guide you through the process.

    Hope this helps you.
