You will need some kind of internet connection so you will use either an Ethernet cord or a Wifi adapter. After you connect to the internet through your Xbox 360 you will have a 1 month free Xbox live trial. When the trial ends you will either use an Xbox live silver subscription which doesn't allow you to play games on-line, use Netflix, etc. Otherwise you would need to buy an Xbox live gold pass which is a better deal as you purchase a longer subscription. Thank you
You have to plug in an Ethernet cable or connect it to WiFi. To connect to WiFi you either need a new Xbox that has WiFi built in, or you need to buy a WiFi adapter for an older Xbox and last time I check those run around 100 dollars.
1) Go to xbox.com and make a gamertag from the website.
2)Go buy a xbox live subscription for best buy, wal-mart, and other electronic store.
3)Get a 360 first of all lol
4)If you are going wireless, go buy a wireless adapter for 75$-100$
5)If you are going wired, you will need a ethernet cable
6)connect your 360 with whatever method your are using (wired or wireless)
7) Turn on your 360, test the connection
8)When u done with that, go to "Join XBox Live" on panel of the 360 guide
From there it should be unexplainable because its pretty easy. I hope i gave you enough infomation. Good luck
If you cannot connect using the wireless because the signal strength is too low, you can connect the Xbox using a LAN cable to the router. You might need someone to install the LAN cable for you depending upon how you can locate neatly.
Ok, all you have to do when it comes to buying a wireless reciever is to buy the microsoft brand one made for xbox live. (100 dollars) Once you have this;
1. turn of the xbox 360 and plug in the adapter.
2.turn on the 360 and go to the network settings option
3. this should bring up a page offering a view of you ip address and ect., go to the bottom link (3rd), and select it.
4. this should give you the option to select your wireless network, then connect to it and test the xbox live connection.
5. Once you pass the test, continue to hit "b" until you are back at the very main menu and begin playing!
It only works with the microsoft adapter nothing else. You'll have to buy the Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter from microsoft and it cost around $100 bucks. It suxks that microsoft charge for this thing, it should come free with the machine
