Hey I just got an xbox 360 and a tv and stuff for hte basement but i have only wireless internet down here. I've been trying to connect my laptop to my 360 for even music sharing and stuff but nothing I do seems to make the 360 recognize that there is something connected to it. I am using the ethernet cable that came with the 360. Reading other posts apparently the color of wires inside matter so left to right with the tab facing down: white, white, green, (space) green, orange, orange. Ive downloaded and run WMP, ive opened the suggested ports on my firewall, reset computer and 360, ensured both are set yo automatic ip.

Is there something specific I have to do with my lan connection. I have not bridged it yet but when i enable the lan connection it thinks nothing is connected. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. When i turn on LAN it gives me the limited or no connectivity message
