First of all, you need either a valid credit card, or a prepaid Xbox
Alright, now you need high speed internet that uses an
Ethernet cord to bridge your connection. Plug into the back of your
console. (There is a gray Ethernet cord supplied with most Xbox's.)
Plug it into
where the "Ethernet cable" arrow is pointing, the bottom port. The top
one is an USB port.
Now, go to your dashboard and go to your
setting. (All the way to the right on your main dashboard channel) Run a
connection test to verify that you have a connection to Xbox LIVE. If
everything good, then let's move on.
Press the center guide
button on your controller and choose "Join Xbox LIVE". Have your valid
credit card and/or your prepaid Xbox LIVE card ready. Put in all of your
personal details. Once you have all of your personal details and
preferences filled out, then you're done!

DON'T WANT YOUR CHILD OR WHOEVER IS USING THIS TO CHARGE A LOT OF MONEY
TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BUYING MICROSOFT POINTS, WHICH IS MICROSOFT CURRENCY
ON THE XBOX FOR THE MARKETPLACE, THEN DON'T INSERT YOUR CREDIT CARD
NUMBER, JUST USE A PREPAID CARD!
