Ok, so here is what I have, Desktop connected to modem, then wireless router. Laptop with wireless G card, and an additional ethernet port on back. This is connected via crossover cable to my xbox. I have tried to connect but no luck, and i messed with the ip's forever. My ISP is not static ip, it is dynamic. I dont have any mod chips, or alternate dashboards on my xbox, and i dont want to have to install any hardware. Is it possible for me to connect? If so what am i doing wrong? I downloaded zone alarm and commview, but i dont think i need them to connect. I am about to flip out and any help is appreciated. Thanks
Dan

Ok, so just to clarify, is this your setup?
Outside line-->modem-->Wireless Router
#1)Wireless Router-->Wired to computer
#2)Wireless Router-->Wireless Laptop-->Crossover cable to Xbox

Is this correct?

If so, you're going to need to enable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in Windows on the Laptop, so the Xbox can get to the net. You're probably going to have to configure your firewall as well. I don't personally have experience in doing either, so someone else is going to have to pick up there. (or you can try microsoft.com and look up ICS or Internet Connection Sharing)
