How to set up your Laptop as a wireless adapter for your Xbox 360!


#1

If you guys are anything like me, you dont want to pay $100 for a stupid adapter. This is a guide showing how to set up your laptops wireless connection as your 360 adapter. all you need is a laptop that is running on a wireless connection a crossover ethernet cable (the ethernet cable that came with the 360 will not work) chances are that you have one of these lying around your house, I found 3 of them in my computer desk.

Step 1: connect your 360 to your laptop with the ethernet cable.

Step 2: change your internet properties by clicking the start menu and going to “Connect to” over the option that says “Wireless network” right click and go to properties, next go to advanced and click the box that says “Allow other users on this network to use this connection” then click ok. (in some cases you have to go to your internet connection and right click and click repair but I didnt have this problem.)

Vista Works differently so you have to do this instead to change your internet connection properties.

  1. Go to start
  2. Run
  3. Type in ncpa.cpl
  4. Hit OK

then right click on your wireless internet connection that you use, go to properties, and do the same thing I said in step 2.

Now turn on your Xbox 360 and enjoy your free wireless adapter.

All I did for Vista was connect to a wireless network on my laptop, plug the 360 in, select wireless and LAN in network properties, right click, bridge.
