Windows 7: Xbox Live Through Laptop

28 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7
Xbox Live Through Laptop

I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it, and am trying to use it as a wireless middle point for my X-box. I have wireless in the house, but think that the $100 wireless adapter that Microsoft wants you to buy is ridiculous. So I'm trying this method.

From what I've read about, there are two different methods. One is to bridge my wireless and my LAN connection, or to just set my wireless connection to shared. The problem that I run into with both of these methods is my LAN ethernet connection automatically kicks off my wireless. If my LAN cable is disconnected, the internet works fine. But when I plug it in, my wireless is turned off, and I am unable to turn it back on.

Essentially, my question at the moment is, how can I make it so I can have both wireless and LAN connection?

Thanks so much for all help!
