    thanks, but my neighbor was on at the same time I was trying to connect, so the servers wern't down. I think the problem might be my ISP. I have SBC, and they are no help.

Live goes down randomly everyday now after christmas. You can check the status of Xbox live on www.xbox.com. They usually will post a report when they are having problems. I guess all the new Xbox owners after christmas are clogging up the Live system and it can't handle everyone. Very aggrevating. They need to get their servers upgraded... fast. Nothing like paying monthly for something and not being able to use it because a ton of other people are using the free one month trial that comes with the system.

How do i install new patches


You have to sign into a account with Xbox Live, then connect to the internet, and basicly start the game.

If you don't have Xbox Live, just sign into your gamer profile, and press one of those advertisements for Xbox Live on the dashboard, and follow the instructions.

Note: For Xbox Live Gold it is necessary that you either have bought a Xbox Live Gold card, which contains a card with a code on it.

Note: If you haven't got Xbox Live, and are signing up for it, system updates for the Xbox may accour.

When ever i create a new account with xboxlive i can go on market place and stuff but i can play online???


Are the accounts you are creating "silver" accounts? If so those accounts only allow you to keep track of your game saves, achievements, and to purchase and download content. They do NOT allow you to play against other online. To do that you need to sign up for xbox live Gold. The Gold membership runs $25 for 3 months or $59 for 12 months. When you become a gold member, you can then play against others online.

Also, if you purchase a code and activate it, the account that is signed in is the account that becomes gold. Very important to double check before you buy in case you have multiple users in your household.

Ok i have xbox live but i dont have the full xbox live like i can go on the but it wont let me get demos or just get to the market place


Right. You have a "silver" account. In order to get demos or play against anyone you need to upgrade to a "gold" account. You can either use a debit card or buy a 3 month, or 12 months card at most retail shops.

Xbox/live/wont/connect


Ok, first off make sure that you are able to go to the xbox live market place. If you cant do that then there is a problem with your connection. If you are on a wireless adapter then you need to do the following: Middle button, scroll all the way to the right. System settings. Network settings. Configure connection, and scan.

If you are using a Ethernet cord, somehting is wrong with it...

If nothing is plugged in you may need to fix that...

You may have ran out of xbox live in which you will need to purchase a card or directly off of market place.

Xbox 360 live DNS test failed


if you are connecting directly to the modem, then you are going to need to get the dns info from your ISP. If you have a router just put the router address or let it find it automatically. Also check that the router has the right dns settings from the ISP.
