I was wondering if the broadband modems AT&T, Cricket, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizion sell would work with XBOX Live? My way of thinking is if connected to my laptop or PC then run those to my router, then my router to the 360 it would connect. I really don't know for sure, so I came here because I know there are alot of smart people on the board....LOL

I like to consider myself one of the moderately smart people on here, but sadly this question is over my head.

Pretty simple solution actually, run ICS (internet connection sharing) from your laptop. Share the broadband connection with the built in Ethernet card of your laptop and use a standard cross over cable between the two.

You will be up and running in no time.

If you want to use your router, plug a regular ethernet cable between the laptop and the routers WAN port. Then set up the router as you would if using cable always on connection.
