Its not possible if your laptop doesn't have an ethernet port. I'm guessing it has wireless as how else could it connect to the net, so why doesn't it have an ethernet port, is it broken?

If it did have it, its just a case of connecting the xbox to your laptop's ethernet port then going to the properties of your wireless connection > advanced > tick the box that says "allow other users to connect through this network"

Connecting it with a network cable to your wireless router would be best otherwise you have to have your laptop on as well.

Have a look at my post here on what you can do as it sounds like you have the same set up as me:

It's unusual for laptops not to have ethernet ports as they've been standard for a while but it's not impossible - you can add one via usb or pcmcia to give your PC the capability to connect your Xbox to live via the laptop's wireless card.
