So I'm not able to connect to my building complex's WiFi since it uses security features not available on the xbox. My laptop and cellphone are able to connect but not my Kindle.
As a work around that's allowed, I can use an ad-hoc network.
I'm running Windows 7 and followed the instructions for setting up an ad-hoc network with an internet connection. I also put a password on the ad-hoc network. My xbox can recognize and connect to the ad-hoc. However it fails to connect to xbox live.
My laptop is still able to access the internet when I make an ad-hoc network.
My xbox's ethernet port is broken, it's approaching 5 years so needless to say, I have no warranty and the expected cost of fixing it is too high. I might as well buy a new xbox, but why would I buy a new xbox when I have a working xbox sans ethernet port.
Any help would be appreciated,
my xbox live gold account is going to waste here
