Can i connect a 360 online through my wireless PC?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of getting a 360 after Christmas to use with my new TV in my bedroom and i will want to connect my 360 to the Internet for using the Xbox Live service. Now here is the question. In my room i have my gaming PC which is connected to the internet wirelessly because the router is downstairs with the family PC and modem (Virgin 2mb Internet).
What i want to know is, can i then connect my 360 to my gaming pc via ethernet and connect to the internet that way?
Hope that makes sense! I know you can buy a 360 wireless kit, but i would rather not spend money on one!

if you have a free ethernet port on your computer you should just be able to share the wireless connection. i set it up for my gf's laptop so it should be the same on a desktop

well to do this I think you would need to use windows internet connection sharing, but I doubt you could set up the xbox to make use of it, unless you could possibly set a manual IP in the same range and gateway (wireless pc) on the xbox 360.

Both the xbox and PC use the tcp/ip protocol for networking so I dont see why they wouldnt work, they just may not be set up to talk to each other

yes you can connect it wirelessly but you have to buy a $90-$100 wireless adapter for the 360 thats how i have mine set any ways but if it doesent connect you to live you have to rehook the router or if that doesent work the modem if you try my way and it dosent work just message me and ill see what i can do

Windows ICS will take care of it.

I did it for two friends a few months back. Works great.

6. Connect your Xbox 360 to a wireless network without an official adaptor

The good news is you don't have to drop £50 on Microsoft's offensively overpriced Wi-Fi adaptor. The bad news is you'll need a laptop with W-Fi to do it. Head to Control Panel – Network Connections (In Windows XP) or Network & Sharing Center – Manage Network Connections (in Vista). Select the Local Area Connection and the Wireless Network Connection at once, then right-click and hit 'bridge connections'.

Disconnect then reconnect to your wireless network, run a network cable from the laptop's Ethernet port to the 360's, and you should be good to go. Unfortunately, you may have to remove the bridge (repeat the above process and you'll see the option) whenever you want to browse the net with the laptop.

Thats for a laptop but im sure itll be similar with a PC.

Thanks guys, i got it to work by connecting the 360 to my PC with the ethernet cable and then bridging the ethernet connection and wireless connection. Both work fine and never loose connection!
