Having trouble using my laptop to connect to xbox live? PLEASE HELP?

I do not have internet in my apartment. But my laptop picks up a good wifi signal that is strong. I have tried everything that Ive read online, bridging the connection, using the connection sharing method all to no avail. Everytime I try connection to xbox live it fails. I will pass the network test but fail on the internet. Thats as close as I can get. Can anyone please help me?

  1. Xbox 360 Slim comes with built in wifi adaptor. Other Xbox 360’s do not. Just because your laptop can access an unsecured internet connection doesn’t necessarily mean your Xbox will. Could be that Xbox live will not allow an unsecured connection. I’ve heard of this issue before and it was never resolved.

  2. Hello,

    Presumably you can get internet on your laptop without any issues?

    I had a similar problem which i just resolved.

    Did any error messages appear when you bridged the wireless and lan connections?

    Also helpful point would be to go on to the properties of the bridge and make sure the wireless and lan connection are checked. Spent hours on this problem with Microsoft giving advice that was irrelevant, all it took was a tick of a box.

    Hope this helps
