    Good day everyone,

    I recently got an xbox360 elite and I've flashed the DVD firmware(only) with iXtreme 1.61..
    Its got a 8955 dashboard so I'm not expecting homebrew on it.

    I want to connect to Xbox Live every now and again because I buy games that I will
    want to play online with (like MW2 or Left4Dead)..

    Here's my setup:

    My 360 is in my room.
    I have a PC(with wireless card) and a couple of laptops in my room.
    My router is downstairs.

    Without moving my 360, how can I connect to the internet via wireless?
    Can I connect my 360's ethernet cable to the ethernet port in my PC or whatever?
    How do i set it up?

    Thank you!

    thanks man, it works!
    i noticed though that I can't find any "disconnect from xbox live" options though, i just unplugged my 360->PC cable. is there such an option that when i don't want to be on LIVE but continue using my profile while playing games offline(backup games)?

    Your profile should still update "offline" and sync when you next go online.

    Also offline/online- it does not matter in the "will I get banned" stakes.
