(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router...you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wiredrouter...)

Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet...so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to thewireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type intoyour browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to findyour router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd...then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router addresswill be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browserand login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize itbecause you will need it later...if you have not changed the passwordits usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once youare logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports foryour xbox 360 for it to be able to connect to xbox live with an openNAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once youget to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports forbest performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forwardthese ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled...find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come inhandy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go tonetwork settings and manually change your settings... so if you haveyour ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me...change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computersthat connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses...so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it sothere arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told youto minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the commandbox into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnetmask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in the dns settings...first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are donewith that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computerto your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... networkconnections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wirelessconnection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... andclick on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

SOURCE: XBOX 360 LIVE Won't Connect

Is the modem also a router?
You need to login to the IP address of your device... if the modem is only a modem, try going to your own IP address.

http://whatismyip.com will help you find it. This may bring you into the settings of the modem. If it is a router as well, then you will need to go to your default gateway's IP address.

Go to start, then run.
Type cmd, then click ok.
type 'ipconfig' and hit enter. Look for your Default Gateway
type that ip into your browser (IE/Firefox/whatever) and login
adjust the MTU to recommended settings. If its at 1500, try 1364 of 1492

For xbox live you dont need to connect it to the laptop.

If you have a router you can go wireless if you have the xbox adaptor or you can use a ethernet cable fromt he router to the xbox, which is a faster connection.

If you want to connect to your laptop to play music ETC go to www.xbox.com/pcsetup to download the media centre extender, this will then connect the laptop to the xbox.

Hope this helps

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
