Network security and xbox 360


Established Member
Hi All

Someone has told me of a way to connect to xbox live without the need for the xbox adapter.

Part of the instruction is to set my network connection to:

Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection

If i do this will this allow people on my street to connect to the internet and my files through my laptop or will they still be asked for my network password?

Thanks in advance

I tried the Xbox today and aat no point did it ask me for a password as i connected. Is this because it i sconnected to the laptop via ethernet and the laptop already holds the password?

Just a bit nervous that others close by to us may be able to access our internet?
