Unfortunately, microsoft has it set up so that xbox console will only work with proprietary hardware. either get a long cable or the wireless adapter.

How to setup Xbox Live


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

I do not know how to get internet on my xbox


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.

How do i join xbox live i dont know howtoget internet on xbox live can you help?


You need to sign up through your xbox or by calling 1-800-4-My-Xbox. You need your xbox to be connected to the internet either by plugging in the network jack in the back of the console, or buying a wireless network adapter and hooking it up to your local wireless network.

Thanks

I have verizon DSL with a wireless modem, but my xbox cannot connect to xbox live. I think this is a computer or modem issue. Any ideas?


Do u have the wireless jump in the xbox? It is about 100 dollars, or u can plug it in and see if it works then. The xbox does not come with a wireless card, you have to buy it seperately. I have mine plugged in to the modem and my computers are wireless, It was cheaper that way.

Xbox Live Connection Interrupted


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!
