Connecting Xbox 360 to Laptop.

I just learned how I can use my Laptop to hookup to my Xbox 360 to sign onto Xbox Live.  now I heard from a friend that doing this is actually bad for your Laptop.  is that true?  I was hooked up to the router that is in my living room via a 50' Ethernet Cable strung around my house to my bedroom.  now  I am using my laptops Wireless Internet connection to access Xbox Live by hooking up a shorter Ethernet Cable from my laptops Ethernet Port into the 360's Ethernet Port.
