How To Connect Xbox 360 To Internet
Learning how to connect your Xbox 360 to Internet will be easy for you. You will love this because you will be able to play online games and so many more games will be open for you. Be warned though because people tend to become hooked on them.
Follow the steps below to learn how to connect your Xbox 360 to the Internet. You will soon learn how easy it really is.
- First of all, you need a high speed broadband connection through DSL or cable. Dial-up or a satellite Internet connection is just too slow for it to work correctly. A 256K speed for downloads and 65K for uploads is recommended by Microsoft. The download speed is the most important thing.
- You will also need an Xbox Live Starter Kit. You will be able to buy this at any store that sells the Xbox 360. You need this Live Starter Kit because it has a headset which you will need to interact with the other players while you are playing online games. This kit also has the disc you will need to update your Xbox dashboard and also comes with a 12-month subscription to the Xbox Live service and some demo games.
- A valid credit card is needed in order to complete the online registration. You will not be charged. Microsoft just uses this to verify your account. However, if you do not cancel your account once the 12 months is up you will be charged to this credit card.
- Now it is time to connect your Xbox Live to the Internet. First of all you will need an Ethernet cable. Plug one end of this cable to the back of your Xbox and the other to your modem or router.
You have everything connected now! See how easy it was? The only thing left to do is turn on your Xbox and follow the on-screen directions to set up your Live account. Have fun!
