Hi opencircles,

I'd start by checking out this overview of Internet Connection Sharing (ICS): Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) (refers to Vista but still applies to Windows 7)

Also reference this tutorial on using ICS between your Xbox 360 and PC: Connect to Xbox LIVE using Internet Connection Sharing: Xbox 360 | Xbox Support

If your home theater PC is running XP, check out this thread as well: Internet Connection Sharing between 7 and XP

Let me know how far you get!

Cheers,

Walker

It doesn't matter whether your router is wireless or not, if it is after your main PC in the network chain and no other devices need wireless internet. So before, your XP PC received wireless internet, and distributed it via a wired-only ethernet router to your Xbox, Xbox 360, and Home Theater PC... right?

And the only thing that has changed is you now have Windows 7 instead of Windows XP? Can you describe where in the process you are having problems? It's very difficult to tell what's wrong without more information. Please also fill out your System Spec.

Cheers,
