Why can't i play on black ops multiplayer online they said Notice:your profile not alowed something like that but i can do other stuff with live


Do you know what type of xbox live you are currently subscribed to?
If you pay a monthly rate or have used a pre-paid card you have access to xbox live gold.
If you do not pay anything, which may be the case, you most likely have xbox live silver.
You can still maintain a friends list and do certain limited activities with silver, however if you would like to engage in multiplayer online for almost any game you will need xbox live gold.

Still not sure?

If you go to xbox.com and sign in using your gamertag. Mouse over your avatar and see if you have a gold background or silver background. Good luck!

How do you get xbox live connections


you need to sign up with xbox live on the xbox console , you need a wireless adapter plugged in and connected to your wireless or a ethernet cable from the xbox to the router. Then just sign up for xbox live , you will receive a 1 month free trial of xbox live gold which will allow you to play people online, after the month trial you either pay for it or you are demoted to xbox live silver

Could you tell me in steps how to conect to xbox live


Step 1 Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
  • Step 2 Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
  • Step 3 Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
  • Step 4 Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.

    My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing


    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

    Can play online but says cant sign into messinger


    The "Can't connect to messenger" error does not apply to in game chat or voice messaging, but only to the version of MSN that can be downloaded from xbox LIVE. Go to network settings, then test the connection to the internet. If it says that your NAT type is moderate or High, you need to do some port forwarding on your router. You can find how to do this on Xbox's main site. The port to be forwarded needs to be number 3074. (or something to that effect)

    I am unable to sign into to my live account?


    Have you clicked test connection and have it tell you why it cant connect?? If it cant connect to the xbox Live and its not a connection problem, Live might be down, you could be banned, there may be an update you need. Most of the time you cant connect there may be a temporary maintenance for live. If you still cant connect call xbox customer support and ask about your account.

    Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360


    Hello there.

    On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

    The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

    With Xbox Live Silver you can:
    • Create an online Gamer Profile
    • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
    • Engage in voice and text messaging
    • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
    • Receive video messages from Gold level members
    • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
    The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

    • Play multiplayer games online
    • Video chat
    • Multiplayer online tournaments
    • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
    Hope this clarifies things for you.

    Xbox to compter


    Path #1:

    if you want to play online, with other people i am assuming? then what you would want is xbox live. you do have to setup a stable internet connection in order to connect to the internet*. and also you do have to pay a membership fee in order to stay in xbox live.

    * and if you want to connect xbox live, you need a cable or dsl connection, either you need an ethernet cable or a pre-tuned wireless usb that is made only for the xbox 360. and also, you would need a cable/dsl company that is accepted by xbox live. and then go to the xbox 360 dashboard, then, click "join membership",

    Path #2:

    setup an ethernet connection either directly, or with a router/hub, then go the system settings, and click, "computers" and then click connect. but this path way is only to create a connection to the computer.

    Call of Duty 4 for xbox 360


    i phoned microsoft about the problem, cuz i've been getting the same thing on other games too and at one point not even connecting on the dash, but when i test the connectivity everything is fine. the person who i spoke to at microsoft said "its a problem with x-box live, and they are working 24/7 to try to resolve this. it is a problem which started x-mas 07" looks like were all going to have to grin and bare it for a while because by the sounds of it they aint got a clue whats up with it.

    Xbox 360 live headset


    Try sending yourself a message and see if you hit play (after recording the message) you can hear yourself. Sometimes Ive been playing games like GRAW2 online and when I lose connection with the host or something along those lines my mic will stop working untill I reset the console. Also, most games will have some kind of an indicator when you are on Live that show when someone is talking. Do these indicators activate at all? (usually a small volume symbol that will light up next to the persons gamertag)
