Here is the problem:

I have a friend in a dorm and they have wireless internet in the dorms. He has his computer on the wireless connection and it works fine, but now he wants to play xbox live and he has no way to have a wired direct connection. I heard it was possible to have the wireless connection bridged to his 10/100 card and then have a cord go from his 10/100 card to his xbox.

Can anyone link me to a guide for this, or can anyone basically explain it to me?

Hi Wes2000!

Hook a ethernet cable going from your computer to xbox. On your computer, connect to the wireless network. Next you must enable Internet Connection Sharing on your wireless connetion. Go to Netwok Connections (from control panel) and right click on your wireless connection, and click properties. Under the advanced tab, there will be a box at the bottom saying "Allow other network users to connet through this computer's Internet Connection" and check the box below that. Thats it! Your done. Enjoy!! :tazz:
