Go onto the connection page on your xbox and then do find connection or anything related to testing connection. once you find it, whatever you named you router on your computer will show up there. once connected, do a connection test and look for any updates. update them and then turn of you xbox. turn it back on. REMEMBER...only games that say Xbox live on the top of the box will work. then start playing

What do you need to do to get xbox live


You will need an active internet provider and depending on what Xbox you have, either an ethernet cable or an adapter.
the new Xbox has WiFi built in and the old one will need an adapter for WiFi.
If you do not have wireless or the new xbox, both models just require an ethernet cable going to the router.

How do I connect Xbox 360 wirless network up


There are two ways to set up wireless connection to your Xbox 360, and get Xbox LIVE. Now remember, for you to do anything with the wireless connection, you need to buy Xbox LIVE. The company has a 3 month free trail for Xbox LIVE that you can sign up for. Then, when you have that bought, your true experience can begin. If you are fortunate enough that you console location is near your internet router, then you can hook up your 360's internet cord to the back of your router. then you will have to go to your internet configuration and test your connection, and you will have live. The other way is by going to Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or any other game seller and buy something that is called the Xbox 360 wireless connection router. I'm not sure if that is the exact name, but it looks like a pretty small internet router. Then, you hook that up to the front or back of your 360, into one of the many USB ports, and you install it. You may need help and may have to call Xbox 360 customer service. But, those are the two ways to get live.
Please rate.

I cannot connect to xbox live. I've called numerous times to microsoft with no results. I've called my router company to open gaming ports, which i did and still nothing. Ive gotten a new xbox, and it...


if you are using a router then you will have to set the connection up your main line to allow the connection to be made. if you are direct connecting with the modem to the xbox and its still not connecting then the xbox live server is down. I used to run into not connecting to xbox live alot more through using my router because my router was old and good gaming on live requires a good gaming router. check to see if your computer is acknowlledging your router, And if it is then, Make sure your router is up to date. sounds like a router issue. post back with any more help if its needed :-)

Ping is high at closest server. But low at servers much further


hello there i have built many wifi networks and install networks for server hosts.
I would try setting your port forward to the correct port that xbox live runs on.
also uncheck Qos (quality of service) this will throttle bandwidth, you want this off.

Xbox live stops working


It is a conflict with your router and modem. If you have a WRT54G linksys router and a Ae60 modem then this conflict will happen. To stop it, buy a new modem or router OR connect to XBox LIVE wirelessly using the XBox 360 wireless adapter ($100).

How to set up for xbox live connection


You need to connect the cable to an internet modem or to a router. you dont conect the xbox to the computer.

The cable is suposed to have both ends exactly the same. the reason why you cant't fit it in your computer is becase you probably allready have a cable with internet connection going to the computer, so connect the cable going to the computer to the xbox or get a router an connect that cable to the router and then get two more cables to go to the computer and other one to the xbox

Why isnt my xbox connecting? i plugged the cble into the rouder and then put the other cable into the xbox and its not letting me connect.


To make a router connection to Xbox Live:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
  8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.

Xbox to compter


Path #1:

if you want to play online, with other people i am assuming? then what you would want is xbox live. you do have to setup a stable internet connection in order to connect to the internet*. and also you do have to pay a membership fee in order to stay in xbox live.

* and if you want to connect xbox live, you need a cable or dsl connection, either you need an ethernet cable or a pre-tuned wireless usb that is made only for the xbox 360. and also, you would need a cable/dsl company that is accepted by xbox live. and then go to the xbox 360 dashboard, then, click "join membership",

Path #2:

setup an ethernet connection either directly, or with a router/hub, then go the system settings, and click, "computers" and then click connect. but this path way is only to create a connection to the computer.
