Do you have a Router Already? If not you need one. If you already have one. Then just text X-Box live connection sttings, and you should be all set to go. Hope this helped.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

My connection is very bad, is it because of my wireless adaptor?


The problem is not with the wireless adapter . Your problem is your wireless connection has low band with and your not getting a strong signal . Try moving your 360 closer to your wireless base station or to a room thats closer to your wireless . If the problem persist use an internet cord and run a direct link to the wireless base to the xbox 360 . Also check to make you dont have any other wireless devices connected to your network as this can reduce your band with and cause your Xbox 360 to not get a strong signal .

What do i need to set up my xbox 360 live? We have wireless internet.


if you want to use the wireless internet you need to purchase a wireless adapter, which will run you about $100 i believe, the cheaper route is to buy a really long eathernet cord and connect it to your router, and the back of your xbox, if you want to play games online you will have to buy an xboxlive gold membership, 3 months of which costs about 20 bucks, and a year of which costs about 50 bucks

Wireless adaptor connecting


It is hard to use if the wireless router is far from the wireless adapter. If the console is far away, then try having it closer.
