Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
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.

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