You need a crossover cable, not an ethernet cable. Just enable internet connection sharing on your ethernet port and share your wireless connection. That's it.

Beat me to it. I use the cable that came with my 360, that's just an ethernet cable, right?


Yes. There are ways to bridge a connection without using a cross-over. IE using the wireless network adaptor in your laptop as the wireless network adaptor for the 360 with a few DNS tricks (this will stop the internet functioning on that computer for however long you have set up but it will work just fine on XBL). However the simple way requires a cross-over cable and Internet Connection Sharing on Windows or Internet Sharing on OS X (I'm sure you can do it on Linux as well but I've never done it). You can make a cross-over cable pretty simply by switching pins 2 and 6 on one connector of a standard Cat5e cable.

Not true. The lack of draw distance hurts, specially on that huge ramp in the original map. It's not bad but it feels dated.

I'm still able to use internet on my laptop while using this connection.
