Windows 7: link xbox 360 to media center

Try adding a PCI LAN card to your PC. Hook your xbox up to that and share your internet through your PC. Very cheap, very easy. You can probably find a PCI LAN card on ebay for $10 or less.

you could try this, a PCI LAN card. plug into open PCI slot on your PC's motherboard, then hook your modem up to your PC, then hook this up to xbox, turn on internet connection sharing and you are good to go.

both products are made by rosewill and are very reliable, very cheap. The easiest option for you would be the first, plug and play, but you will need to buy some more LAN cables. If you go the other route and need help setting it up, PM me or reply here and I will do my best to help.
thanks ill grab a cheap lan card
