xbox internet problems

Hi

i bought my son an xbox 360 250gb.  He loves it.  But we have a problem! We only have the internet through a dongle plugged straight into a laptop, so means we dont have a modem!  My son wants to have his xbox live so how do we do it?

ive been told to plug an ethnet cable into the xbox and into the laptop connect the dongle and set it up that way?  Would it work?

Any info would be appriciated.

Thanks

I did some research but need a bit more info. What type of dongle do you have? To be able to use your dongle for your son's Xbox you will need a wifi-Dongle. This allows you to have other devices to connect to you dongle internet. I do not think you can connect to Live without that. But I will do more research on this and get back to you!
