connect to live through laptop

Hey everyone.  I've been scouring the internet for a solution to my problem but have been unable to get this to work.  So far what I have done is connect my laptop to the xbox.  Tried to bridge the connection but i just lose connectivity to the laptop and live doesn't work.  The other option - ICS - also does not work.  I have tried manually assigning an ip, and leaving the settings as automatic to no avail.  Could anyone help me connect to xbox live via my laptop? This seems incredibly complicated and I'm having no luck.

When that test fails - as long as it's running the firmware programmed by microsoft - it will give you a message that says to hit more info for a description of the problem; on this screen you will want to look at the first couple lines that show up at the top of the message.
