Wour XBOX 360 has no modem therefore a phone jack will not work you need an Ethernet sable (cat 5, 5e or 6 with RJ-45's on each end) <----- too descriptive sorry you need high speed internet not dial up you can use dial up but the converters are rare and not good for gaming.

Connect to the Internet
The first step is to connect your Xbox 360 console to your Internet connection. Here's how:
Plug one end of a network cable into a port on your router or gateway. You might need a long network cable, depending upon on the location of your router or modem.
Note If you do not have a router, you can plug the network cable directly into your modem.
Plug the other end of the network cable into the back of your console.
Verify your setup
Your setup should look similar to one of the following:
Your Xbox 360 console and computer are both connected to a router. The router is connected to a modem, which is connected to a cable wall jack. Modem connection
Your Xbox 360 console is connected to a modem, which is connected to a cable wall jack.
Ok I have seen this issue many times before , first unplug the console . Disconnect the power cable , a/v cable , controllers , any usb devices , & finally disconnect your hard drive . Now let the system sit for a few minutes , then plug in just the power , a/v cable , & a controller . You should be able to boot your Xbox 360 successfully now . At this point you can either connect your hard drive while the system is running or you can turn it off & connect it . This should fix the issue , if not you can attempt to clear the system cache in the Settings Menu or worst case download the latest update from Microsoft on your Computer , then follow the instructions & place it on a freshly formatted USB Memory Stick . Then place the USB Memory Stick in the 1st USB Port on the Xbox 360 & boot the console .
things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to www.xbox.com and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there
(These instructions are vague because they are from memory, so sorry if they are not very clear)
Go to Console Settings, then go to Network Settings, then click A on the first thing that comes up, continue clicking A until it returns you to network settings. Then try to connect to Xbox Live again, if you still can't connect, then the xbox 360 console is not close enough to your internet source, or you don't have a wireless internet connection.
Lots of people seem to be having problems with wireless adapters, I don't know about ethernet cables, but I have done some searching for you and if you click on the link below and scroll 2/3's down the page, there is a screen shot of how you can connect your 360 to the net from your computer. (it's not a fix to your direct problem, but it is a short term fix)
Here is a quick list of some trouble shooting steps;
1. Turn off you Xbox 360 console and inplug the internet connection going to it.
2. Go to your router and restore its factory defaults, then without the wireless adapter/ehternet cable plugged into the Xbox 360, restore the factory defaults on the console.
3. Turn off the console, and plug the wireless adapter/ehternet cable back in and power up again.
4. Go to the network settings link and press "A," then go down to the bottom slide (there are three total), and press "A".
5. Select your wireless network and test your xbox live connection.

I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in?
(sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site.
So that may be ya problem?
