Q: Is it possible to connect an Xbox 360 to the Internet using a wireless laptop as a possible router through an Ethernet cable or USB cable?

    I would say yes it is possible to do but I would not suggest dong it. To do it you would need a cross over cable instead of a patch cable (ie not a regular Ethernet cable) to connect from the Xbox to the laptop. You would then have to turn on internet connection sharing on the laptop. You might have to change some firewall settings on the laptop as well.

    Then you would might have to make some settings to your router/firewall/high speed modem.

    I would suggest that it is a much better idea to move your router close to the Xbox 360, get a wireless access point or just get a wireless USB for the Xbox 360.
