So,

I've got an xbox 360 and a laptop with wireless internet. My router is way too far from my 360 to hook it up with an ethernet cable, though I do have one.

Is there a way to connect my laptop to my 360 to access LIVE on my 360 without having to buy a wireless adapter for my 360? And if so, how do I do it?

Note that I suck at computers and will probably need everything spelled out for me.

Please help me?

EDIT: I also have vista, if that matters.

i don't think so
you'll have to buy a longer ethernet cable or an adapter

No, you'll need the network adapter.

Dude, for £5 you can get a 20 metre ethernet cable, which is faster than wireless will ever be.

Wires = Win.
no.

getting a gaming router is cheaper then the xbox wireless adapter and they can go farther

You can set up Internet Connection Sharing on your laptop and then run an ethernet cable to your Xbox. That's what I do, and it works fine.

Internet speed is paramount to xbox LIVE performance. At least for games like Gears of War and Call of Duty. If you are planning on Hosting matches online I would suggest nothing less than 6 MB download. You'll need to have a good up-load speed as well. Lots and lots of foreign players are finally picking up on the LIVE and it really saps the connection performance.

Good Cable internet package should offer 8 MB download and 4 MB upload speed. At least they have it here in GA.

DSL is crap. Unless you have the Fiber network in your area and can get the 6 MB plus boost.

This is what i did.
I bought another ethernet cable, and a connector, so I have the two hooked up together, making a moster ethernet cable.
Also, on your labtop, dont have any programs running.
