dont no how to setup my xbox live using a t-mobile dongle in my pc???


Okay, here's what you do. Set up the dongle in your PC so internet is running.

Now Connect your Xbox to your PC with an ethernet cable.

Next Go to Start> Control Menu>Network Connections

Choose your internet of choice
Right click it
Choose properties
Click the Advanced tab
Check "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection"

Now try connecting to Xbox live. If that doesn't work go to Xbox Live Network settings and test connection.

Hope this helps you
