Use Windows Internet Connection Sharing


You can use Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection between your
computer and your Xbox 360 console. If you do this, both the console and your computer can access the
Internet at the same time.

To use Internet Connection Sharing, you must have the following:

A computer that has two network adapters

Note Most laptop computers have two network adapters, one for a wired connection and one for a
wireless connection.

A USB modem that has at least one Ethernet connection


Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 (The Windows 7 Starter edition does not
support this feature.)
High-speed Internet access
A standard Ethernet cable

Set up Windows Internet Connection Sharing

The following steps show Windows 7 and Windows 8 screen images. However, the steps are the same for
earlier versions of Windows, unless otherwise indicated.

to connect through this computer's Internet connection, one of the following might be true:

Your computer does not have two network adapters. To resolve this problem, install a second
network adapter in your computer or check to see if your existing network adapters are functioning
correctly.
You might be trying to share the wrong network connection. To resolve this problem, repeat step 3
above, and select a different network connection.

Create a network bridge connection


If you have a laptop computer with both wired and wireless network adapters, you can use your laptop to
connect your Xbox 360 console to Xbox Live. This type of connection is called a network bridge connection.
.

This connection is quick and easy, but you cannot access the Internet on the laptop when the laptop is
connected to your Xbox 360 console.
