right my problem is similar i no how to connect through my laptop with a wireless but my friend is having a problem. he is in the navy and has a wall connection to get online with his laptop, but to get his internet up he has to enter a password and user name. i was wondering if there is anyway of hooking his laptop to the wall via an ethernet cable and then his laptop connects to his xbox 360? would an ethernet splitter work if it was plugged into his laptop and then both ethernet cables are then plugged into it? or would there be a solution with a wireless router? any help is appreciated
