    I do not know how to put the xbox live stuff on my xbox 360

    If you are referring to getting an Xbox Live account, it is a fairly easy process that is walked through by a series of menus on the the console's dashboard. Just make sure you have your console connected to your internet connection and boot it up. From there you can use a current profile or create a new one by pressing the Guide button (big X button in the center of the controller) and either select create profile or if you are signed into the profile you want to put on Xbox Live you select Join Xbox Live. The next series of menus that come up will help you get the account up and running.

    I am incredibly frustrated. I have been trying for hours to simply join silver xbox live, and it times out every damn time. I need to connect my xbox 360 with my wireless internet and can't do that either....

    setting up xbox live is a very simple method and can be done easily if you follow the step by step process on the xbox. First of all, Xbox Live requires a high-speed Internet connection. There are many different videos on youtube that show you how to get an internet connection on the 360 even if you dont want to by a 100$ adapter or run a wire throughout your house. after you get a connection you can follow this process:

    after you get a connection you can follow this process:
    1. On the Gamer Profile screen, select I Want to Join Xbox Live and then press A. 2. Scroll to the Join Xbox Live option and press A. 3. Select Yes and press A to continue. 4. Enter your gamertag and press Start. Xbox Live checks the availability of your selected gamertag: • If the name isn't available, you're prompted to try another name. • If the gamertag is accepted, you are automatically prompted to link to your Passport account. 5. Select your current Passport account status: • Yes, I do(you have a Passport account). • After you sign in to an existing Passport account, you can skip to Step 16. • No, Create One(you don't have a Passport account). 6. If you select No, Create One, you can now choose your Locale. 7. Set your preferred language. 8. Set your birth date. 9. Enter your e-mail address. 10. Select a password, a secret question, and a secret answer. 11. Select Next and then press A. 12. Enter your first name, last name, phone number, and contact e-mail address. 13. Read the Terms of Use. 14. To accept the terms, choose Accept and press A. If you don't accept the Terms of Use, you can't create an Xbox Live account. 15. Pick your Xbox Live membership type. When creating a new Xbox Live account, you have two basic choices: • The Gold (paid) account lets you in on multiplayer games on Xbox Live. • The Silver (free) account lets you download game updates and purchase new content through Xbox Live. 16. Confirm your account type choice (and enter payment details if you chose Xbox Gold). 17. Choose a gamer picture. 18. Choose your level. 19. Decide whether you want to subscribe to e-mail information about Xbox Live

    Xbox 360 live acount

    The problem is that you have created 2 different accounts, you have to use the account you used to complete the game to join xbox live to maintain the achievements - you can't send game data to another account. Play the original account (the one you completed the game with) and use it with Live. If you haven't discovered this yet or the other account expired get more Xbox Live and go from there.
