Issue setting up shared internet connection between laptop and xbox 360 slim


Standard Member

I'm trying to set up a wireless connection between my laptop and my xbox 360 slim to get internet access to my xbox and thus live. I only have one ethernet socket in my room and have to log on to an isp to gain access to internet so currently have my laptop connected to that. The only information I can get on my wireless card is that it is a Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter.

Have tried various methods to connect and at one point had it all setup and working but next time I tried after turning laptop and xbox off it stopped working. I did connect it to a friends laptop through wireless and managed to log into live so I know the xbox isn't the problem.

Any help would be a lifesaver as I've spent 3 days straight trying to set this up and have not got far.

Thanks :)
