Exclamation Help!

I'm trying to setup my XBOX Live thru my laptop. Thing is I have a wireless broadband connection that connects thru my USB port. It's a Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem.

Now, going thru the tests for the connection...I got passed the Network Adapter. The IP Address was confirmed, but now something about DNS is failed. I've spent the last 2 hours just trying to get the IP confirmed and now this.... I don't know what to do now.

And my laptop is hooked to the 360 with an ethernet cable.

Mind you, I also got a wireless adapter and I don't think it's of any use now.

Someone please help me.
This is so stressful...

your problem is simply the crossover cable. Go back to using your cat5 cable.

Changing the router’s IP address to worked for me, and now I’m up and running with Xbox Live.

where is the router configuration menu????????

Default For Windows Vista users

I have windows vista and this is what I did to access Xbox live through my laptop.

1st - connect the laptop to the xbox via a crossover cable (i bought mine at office max for 20 dollars)

2nd - go to Control Panel, then click on Network and Internet, then click on manage wireless networks, then click on adapter properties, then click on the sharing tab and enable ICS(internet connection sharing) now in that tab, i checked every box even though i didn't know what they really meant, so u might need to do the same

Also, make sure your xbox isn't turned on until steps one and two are done.

I hope this helps, it did for me
