Millions (ok, not quite millions) of guides out there. In my experience, if you follow the instructions they don't usually work out due to your system having a different setup to the one the guide was written on (diff hardware, operating system, ip/router settings etc).. I eventually got my PS2 and Ps3 working with ICS but it took much more than following a guide (lotsa lotsa fiddlign with settings!)

A few key terms to help your Google search:
- Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
- Wireless bridge

~ "Use xbox 360 as wireless bridge"
~"Using internet connection sharing with xbox 360"
~"Using ICS with xbox 360"
etc etc etc

bascially what it is is that you connect your laptop wireless-ly to your wireless modem router then hook your xbox 360 to your laptop wired. here's a site that might help.

Waste of time causes stupid lag best bet is powerline adapters. I know its as expensive but at least the adapters aren't locked to one stupid device.

I would agree, i tried it as an experiment and it was useless.

Guess it could be down to router, wifi card etc in lappy but I would just buy a non M$ wireless bridge, can get them for about £15 on fleabay

I found it to be competent as a free alternative to the bridge. Didn't lag greatly and the only downside was that the laptop had to be switched on to connect to LIVE. Then again it can be a nightmare to configure at times, and connections can be finnicky so if you can afford it the bridge/powerline is a much better option.

With regards to performance, I found using my PC as a bridge worked well once I got it set up. It was with my PS3 but I didn't recieve any lag or other problems. The only problems I encountered were errors due to closed ports (down to restrictions on the network I was using, nothing to do with the bridge setup).

Worth a shot, if it doesn't work then you'll have to fork out for a wireless adaper :(
