Windows 7: Cannot Locate Local Connection

Cannot Locate Local Connection

I'm using Windows 7 RC and I want to route my wireless internet through my laptop and to my 360 using a cable. I've done this successfully with Vista, but hit a roadblock with Windows 7. Basically my 360 cannot be detected. I open up my internet connections and try to get to sharing in the properties, but there is no sharing tab as there should be. Any help would be great.

Are you using a router to connect your 360 to your computer? Or just a crossover cable?
