Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I have an HP pavillion (model 7480) with wireless lan and want to share the internet connection. I also have a netgear wireless router available but not set up. My xbox and internet modem is in basement but computer is upstairs and modem is wired to up stairs but I would like to connect into the basement modem and still share with the upstairs pc (HP). I need help with setting up router (if necessary) and the changes to control panel that are necessary.
If the Router is a modem router , with phone connection, connect it to the phone socket where the modem is currently plugged in, connect a computer (a laptop?) to the router using an ethernet cable to configure it.
When everything is ready and router is on, call your Internet Service Provider phone number to get step-by-step instructions on how to configure the router for your ISP internet settings.
If the router is not a modem router, connect the modem to the router using an ethernet cable on one of the router's RJ45 connector, then connect the router to a computer.
On the computer put router IP on internet explorer address bar, to open the roputer control panel.
You will be asked for ID and password to access the router.
Once you enter into router configuration, the only settings you need to change are the wireless and security (set a wep key) settings.
Refer to router user manual to find out Router IP, and user and password to access router control panel.

Get a wireless router to make it support instead of wiring connections.this will solve the problem easily

The only way you can share an internet connection from your laptop is with a "crossover cable" this is a pain as you have to have an ethernet crossover cable attached to the laptop and will have to be at least 30ft long for what you want it for.
I suggest you get your wireless router set up and purchase a Xbox 360 wireless adapter from a company like Amazon for example.
This will cut down the need for very long ethernet cables.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya
