You are so right.

Ryo, I know how to configure the XBox, it is Windows I don't know how to fix!
Ah well, I will work it some more tomorrow when I have more time.

Haha. I know a friend with a broken one. He claimed he would give it to me, and if I fixed it, I could keep it.
He never did, but it would have been fun (I thought I could fix it too).

If he ever does, maybe I will send that one over. Then you can tell me exactly what to do!

I keep reading Threads like this; trying to use ICS for some other device to connect to the Internet. As of yet I have not seen anyone get it to work correctly. Maybe they get a connection but then ports are blocked, or only part of it works, or they cannot connect to the server but can see the internet. The list goes on and on.

Your best way to get this to work it to connect the device directly by Ethernet wire or wireless. (Hardwire or use the wireless device PF recommended). This way you do donít compromise your machine, security or firewall. The setup is simple and easy to move or reconfigure as needed. Ė Just my 2 cents.

I know that WindowsStar. The point was that I am not paying $100 for the wireless adapter (that is only G anyways), and I cannot run a cable to my router as it is on the other side of the house.

I was looking for a way to enable ICS and just use that.

Ok, I figured it out!

Here are the steps:
-Enable ICS on your INTERNET connection (in my case, the wireless network)
-Plug in your XBox (Does NOT require a crossover)
-Test connection.

Mine works great now.

I completely understand, but if it does not work or doesn't work correctly, then it seems a moot point. I think the Wireless option PF recommended was only $37, that is extremely inexpensive and you have be best of all worlds, no wires, complete security on your computer, and easy configuration.

I give you kudos if you want to figure it out and get it working. If you do then you can post a new tutorial on it

I was able to get ICS to work with my mobile broadband modem...all I had to do was enable it. Although I do have to disconnect and reconnect before I fire up my Xbox.

I just got it figured out this morning (thus the check and my last post).

I don't mind looking at alternate solutions, but this was really only going to be a problem for a little while more. In my dorm I would just plug it into the wall instead (don't need to now), while here I don't have that option.
Plus, I really didn't want to spend money.
