Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Have you ever wonder if you could connect your 3G mobile broadband modem to your xbox360? Well i have done it and it works fine.
What you will need to do is enable network sharing in your laptop/pc
I am using a vista laptop and orange mobile boradband, and this is how i done it!
First of all connect your 3G modem to your laptop/pc as you normaly would. Now get an ethernet cable and plug this into your laptops ethernet port and then into the back of your xbox's ethernet port.
Click on start> connect to> Then you will see "open network and sharing center" Click that. In the next window you will find all networks connected to your laptop/pc. You will see one below your normal internet connection called unidentified network. Click "view staus" Now in this window click and go to properties. now in this window click on the network tab at the top of the window. While now in this window click on enable network sharing via this device. Now go to your xbox360 and try to connect to Xbox live if at the first atempt it did not work test your connection via xbox as it will ask you to do this anyways. You should now be eable to connect to xbox live using your 3G modem.
Hope this helps!
