My Sharing tabs Are Missing on my windows vista laptop

I'm trying to connect my xbox 360 up to my laptop so i have the use of xbox live.

But i'm missing both sharing tabs in my local area connection and my wireless connection.

Cause i've gone to propeties on both of them and it's prompted me to continue. So i do but no sharing tabs at all.

So i can't connect my xbox up.

Can someone please tell me how to get that tab up and showing so i can click on it.

This is what it says atm.

THE SHARING TAB WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE NETWORK CONNECTION.

So if that means that i need to add another network connection. Can you please tell me how in detail.

Thanx

SOURCE: xbox 360 live using internet through my laptop

Normally you would connect your xbox directly to the router. Is there a reason you are trying to connect to your laptop instead? (distance, etc.)

If that is what you truly want to do then first thing make sure you are using a CROSSOVER cable to connect your laptop and xbox together. standard network cables only apply to connecting to routers, switches, and other network controlers. If you are connecting two devices directly you must use this type cable. It is ussally red.

The share tab is only for sharing dialup connections to LAN connections. You are sharinbg two LAN connections so all you need to do is bridge them and make sure there are in the same IP group. Check the status of your wireless card to see what address the router is assigning to it. Then assign the IP to the wired adapter with a differnt higher number.. Example: If your wireless card is 192.168.1.100 then make your wired adapter 192.168.1.151 This should make it work.

Again, it would be much easier to connect your XBOX to the router like it was intended ;)

Trying to get Xbox live connected...


Follow these steps if you are trying to use a laptop :
1.
Make sure that your XBOX 360 is fully functional and your laptop is connected to the internet by means of a wireless card.
2.
Locate the Ethernet cord and connect it to both the computer and XBOX 360. Don't turn on the XBOX 360 yet.
3.
On your Vista, click "Start" then "Network". After select the tab "Network and Sharing Center." On the left tab, click on "Manage network connections." You will see a Local Area Connection and a Wireless Internet Connection.
4.
Use your mouse to select both icons and right click. Click on Bridge Connections. Turn on your XBOX 360, Sign In, and you will find yourself connected to XBOX LIVE.
5.
Once you are done, and you need to use your computer for other uses. Simply right click on the Bridge Connection and select disable.

Connect your 3g mobile broadband to an xbox360!


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!

I have tried to connect to xbox live


you need to make sure you have enabled ICS, Internet Connection Sharing. To do so, you go in to the internet settings (found in the network sharing centre)choose your net connection, click 'view status' and then click properties (the first of three buttons at the bottom, properties, disable and diagnose) then once the window pops up, there is a sharing tab, check the box that states 'allow other users to connect to this computers internet connection' after that simply dis connect and re connect and the new settings will be able to be used once you do a xbox live network test. Good Luck.
