How to Turn Your Laptop Into a Wireless Reciever for Your Xbox.





Introduction: How to Turn Your Laptop Into a Wireless Reciever for Your Xbox.

There are so many ways to do this and this is the easiest one.

Step 1: The Easy Part

Hit the start menu button and go to connect to and click on show all connections.

Step 2: The Harder Part

Now that you have the window up. Right click on the wireless network connection and go down to properties.

Step 3: The Easiest Part Click a Button.

Go to the Advanced tab. Click on the Allow other network users to connect to the internet through this computer. I think that is close to what it says. I am not for sure though. And that is it. Just plug one end of an ethernet chord into the computer and the other into the Xbox. If the computer says that there is a problem, right click on the wirded network toolbar and repair. That should take care of it. HAVE FUN GAMING

    Can you do this for windows 8????

    now i finally know how to do this it never specified to change the wireless network i assumed it was the lan you had to change thanks this is way easier to understand then some of the other inscrutables i have read on this topic

    can this work with a mac?

    Good mod. I got this to work on XP through ICS last year...however, I still only had 1.5 mbps down and 1.0 mbps up, which is bad to begin with, but if you only have wireless in your apartment, it's really a good way to go to avoid buying the $100 wireless device for the 360.

    i had heard of ICS before but really never thought i would have any need for it. after rearranging my home network (moving computers/routers/etc to different rooms) i ended up with my xbox unable to be connected to my router anymore. but, since i normally have my laptop plugged in near it, this is the perfect solution for me. also for anyone on vista, you go to control panel, and then network and sharing center. click "manage network connections" on the left side, then you can continue at step 2.

    cool this will go great with the "how to use a laptop as a tv" ible I'm making.

    hey give me a heads when that is is done i need that really bad

    is should be done in a few days because of school. sadly your way did not work for me but i does not matter because im so far from my rouder i don't know how whell i would beable to play on line. so ill berunning cat 5 or mabe cat 6 to my room soon.

    well what was wrong i will work out all the bugs and put one up for vista
