Windows 7: Running Xbox Live off Droid X2 phone. HELP

Running Xbox Live off Droid X2 phone. HELP

I have a Droid X2 running Android 2.3.3. I have PDAnet 3.02 installed on both my phone and my laptop. I also have my Xbox 360 plugged into my laptop via an ethernet cable. I went into my network connections and clicked share this connection so that way the connection from my phone (via USB) is sharing the connection through the ethernet port. With this all set and done, I tried connecting to Xbox LIVE. First attempt, won't sign into XBL. So I go to the network settings on my 360 and test the Xbox LIVE connection. This is what is show (I'm showing in a text form): Xbox 360=====Network=====Internet==X==Xbox LIVE. The (=)s between 360, Network, Internet are all green dots means GOOD, but when it tries to connect to XBL, it fails. So under More Info, it said my network doesn't have a sufficient MTU setting. Xbox LIVE requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. So I try to go into CMD as an Administrator and type (netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Local Area Connection 2" mtu=1364 store=persistent) and it doesn't work. LAC2 is what CMD was calling the PDAnet connection. The default MTU setting for both LAC and LAC2 are 1500. Any way I can get Xbox LIVE to work using my Droid X2? If you need anymore information, please let me know. Also, I can connect to Xbox LIVE using my Verizon mobile hotspot since its a wireless connection, so I just share the connection from the WiFi card to the ethernet port. The only reason I don't want to do this anymore is because I only have a 5GB data plan as compared to my phone which has unlimited.
