    In front of you
    I'm trying to get xbl on the 360 by using this method but so far I still get the same message "cannot detect hardware". I plugged the ethernet cable from my computer to the box so why isn't this working? I use a wireless network connection and Vista Home Premium. Bought the system new just yesterday. Sorry if this is stupid for asking and thanks in advance.

    Ok, so let just conform this with you before i say anything.

    So basically the setup is... Wireless Router----> Laptop----> laptop ethernet port---->cable----> to 360

    Right ?

    Well i believe the way to do it is that you must bridge the connection, between the laptop and the 360

    I may be wrong, but is distinctively remember something about bridging.

    Hope it helps .

    Also i recommend just getting a really long cable from your router to the 360 (that's if its possible) i mean it would be just much more simpler.
