Don’t you need to have a Xbox live account?

i cant get one yet because im not connected to it i need to know the wires to connect to my computer from my xbox….. do i need to get a router or what?

i’m here assuming you have broadband
and that your in America
So with my limited knowledge of internet in america i’m going to say this:
on the back of your broadband router (if you have one, we do in australia) plug an ethernet cable into the back of the router here
Then plug the other end into the Xbox you should see the ethernet port
and you should finish with a set up like so
Just Pretend One of the PC’s is your Xbox

I hope this works because like i said i have no clue as to how internet in America or any other country is set up!

@varey14: How do you connect your computer to your internet? By plugging it directly into your modem?
