my xbox wont connect to live at my house

hey, i bought an arcade edition xbox a few years ago and it wouldnt connect to live. i didnt really care as i didnt see the need for it. well over the summer i bought an xbox elite from a friend and it was striped of its previous memory so no game tag or microsoft account was associated with it. so i try to connect and it wont let me still. it connects to my internet and local just fine but it never lets me connect to live at my house. i have a good provider and every thing but this seems to work fine. can any one tell me why i cant connect? i also have been told that i must purchase a live subscription for it to go through and because my friends had live i was able to connect to live, i have oppened all the ports and have allowed it on my modem as well. please i am begging for help i need live asap
