Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My daughter just bought an xbox 360 pro, we do not have a desk top computer at home, we have lap tops she has a mac and we use the Version wireless card to access the internet. how the hell can we hook up the xbox live? We went and bought a router that didn't work, and we keep getting different stories from everyone we talk to. Please HELP I don't want to run around town every night after work trying to figure this out. Thanks so much for your help!
Actually it was easier for me to connect the 360 up that way... didnt even need a router... the ethernet cable to the laptop, sprint mobile broadband aircard, and the download at microsoft to upgrade my windows media player to Media Player 11.
just upgrade windows media player to version 11 and go in its options and choose to 'share' the 360 will appear choose YES and the xbox does the rest...

Because your using laptop computers and a mobile carrier for your internet services this will be a little harder then normal but not imposable.
First what you would need is a ethernet switch or hub. This should allow you use the laptop with the Verizon card as a "Gateway". You would then connect the Xbox 360 to the hub and it would share the internet from the laptop.
Windows XP, and Vista have nice networking wizards that can walk you through the settings. But be aware you may need to change the settings back when you are not using the Xbox 360.
Hope this helps.
