This is how I did it.

First you have to configure your NationalAccess - BroadbandAccess network connection. To do this go to start, my computer, my network places, view network connections. Then you have to right click the NationalAccess - BroadbandAccess network connection and then properties, then click on the advanced tab,check the box under internet connection sharing that says allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection. connect the xbox via a network cable from the console to the ethernet port on your laptop, then connect to the internet, and fire up the xbox 360. Thats it. Hope this helps.

One more thing no?

This is how I plan to set it up as well, but wouldn't you need a cross over cable instead of a regular patch cable if you are going from NIC to NIC?

You need wireless bridge, AP client, or gaming adapter

To wirelessly connect a Blu-ray player or Xbox to Internet, you need a device that may be called by many names including wireless bridge, wireless gaming adapter, wireless access point, and AP client. Even their prices vary all over since it is hard to compare. Here is a <a href="">page that lists all the Blu-ray wireless connection options available and their pricing</a>.
