XBOX Live Through Sierra Air Card?

I’m in a place where the only internet connection I can get is through a PCMCIA Sierra AirCard in my laptop. Does anybody know what I need to connect my XBOX to my laptop to get an internet connection, ie XBOX Live??

You connect the cord (if its Ethernet) that goes into the card into the 360. But it looks like your card is wireless. If you’re talking about wifi, you have to buy a wireless adapter for the 360. Since you don’t have access to the router or hub, this could prove to be problematic.

If your laptop has a standard ethernet port, you could use a cross-cable to connect the Xbox to it (or two standard ethernet cables with a hub); and then use Window’s Internet Connection Sharing to let the Xbox reach the net.

Depending on the quality of your wireless signal, you might experience lag and connections drops.

Thanks. I don’t care about the dropped signals- Im in friggin Kuwait right now… Going through some Halo withdrawals.

He’s not allowed to tea-bag his kills, so it’s not the same.

When they go, you’re really “called away.”
