Need help connecting to xbox live via a laptop
I have been trying to connect to xbox live, and i have read various tutorials that say you can connect to xbox live using a laptop. Even though all the methods vary, they all say that you need a local area connection between your xbox and the laptop. My problem is that when i connect the two with an ethernet cable, i do not get a local area connection. I'm probably overlokking something simple, but please help.
I am using windows xp, and the ethernet cable that came with the xbox.
P.S-This is my first post, so hello to everyone!
