Well if you are using Wireless Internet, you probably have an access code(Password). Try going into your Internet Settings and entering the Access Code that is set for your Router.

Older XBox 360 with wireless antenna - can't connect to network - why not?


What color does your wireless adapter (xbox) turn when you power on your xbox? Green, Red, or Grey (No light)?

If it's grey(no light), try connecting the adapter into one of the USB ports in front of the console(the usb ports are behind that flap)

If it's red, it's a hardware problem and you should try and repair it.. or replace it (xbox antenna).

If it's green, then it's something to do with your network settings.

Good Luck

How to connect the xbox kincet


If your Kinect only has one cord coming off of it, that should go into the back of your Xbox where there is a color coded slot (orange).

Trying to connect the kinect


First off make sure you have at least 190 mb of space in your HDD before trying to set up your kinect.
Setup:
Step 1: Make sure your xbox 360 is properly connected to the television with the AV cables and power cable to an outlet.
Step 2: Place sensor under or on top of your television on a stable flat surface.
Step 3: Depending on your xbox the sensor has two different connections. If you have the new slim xbox 360 then you do not need the extra add on connection you simply connect it to a special port for it on the back of your xbox 360 slim. If it is a older version xbox then you will need the extra power adaptor since it will not work without it.(Cable with power connection)
Step 4; (ONLY FOR OLDER VERSION XBOX 360): If you have a wireless connection adaptor unplug it from the usb port in the back of the xbox 360 and connect the kinect sensor's power adaptor into the port you took the wireless connection adaptor off of. There should be a special cable that will act as an extension for the wireless connection adaptor you unplugged this is so you can connect it directly to the usb ports in the front of the xbox 360. Then plug the end with the power outlet connector of the kinect sensor power adaptor into the wall socket.
Step 5: Turn on the xbox 360 and the kinect sensor should move up and down to adjust.
Step 6: Put kinect game in and it will guide you through kinect settings and your on your way to start playing! Have Fun!

How to setup xbox live


To set up the connection via a router unplug the router and the modem and turn off the 360. Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the out ports of the preexisting router then connect the cord to the back of your 360. Plug everything back in and turn and give the modem and router about 3 minutes to reboot.

Once you have given everything a few minutes to reboot you can turn the 360 back on. If you have already set up a gamer profile you will see the Xbox Live screen. If you have not set up an account you will be prompted to do so. All you need to do is follow the on screen instructions. It is a pretty cut and dry process and should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
If you want to go wireless or you must go wireless you will need to get the Xbox360 wireless network adapter. The adapters are available at most stores that sell 360 games or you can order it online. Once you have the adapter unplug any Ethernet cable you might have plugged into the 360 then clip the Network adapter to the back of the 360. It is really easy to see where it belongs, but just in case, the adapter will sit right alongside the USB port which is right above the Ethernet port. Once you have clipped it in plug the USB cable that is attached to the adapter into the port on the Xbox 360. Flip up the antenna that is laying flat against the adapter and you are set, well almost set.

Turn on the 360 and head into the System tray. You will see Network options, go ahead into that screen and follow it through to the "Edit Settings" subcategory. The Network name should appear on a list of available networks. Select your network and enter the password, if there is a password. Exit out and you should be ready to play.

Xbox 360 ethernet port -not working usb??


no the xbox doesnt work with the usb to ethernet adapter. i thought it would work also. and it turns out it does. this would be because you have to install the device drive for it to work, and you cant do this on your xbox. but radioshack sells ethernet ports for about $6 if you know how to switch them out.
