So my modem is way too far away and I am attempting to share the wireless connection from my laptop. I have windows 7 and the modem is a Linksys wrt54g. I tried to go in Network Connections and select the two boxes under the sharing tab for my wireless connection. For some reason it will not connect to xbox live. When I run the test it says it can't obtain an ip address. Anyone know if there are router settings or something that needs to be changed or am I going about all this wrong?
nevermind fixed it. For anyones future reference all it required was to pull up the router settings and under the security tab uncheck
