So I have a wireless router, a laptop, and a desktop, and the wireless router is too far away to directly connect to the laptop or desktop. The laptop can connect to the desktop using a regular LAN cable. The laptop can get wireless internet from the router. Here's a fun text diagram!

I thought it would connect my desktop to the wireless network via the laptop sorta like a proxy, but I can't seem to access the internet on the bridge, either. Is there a way to connect the desktop to the internet with this wire setup? I thought maybe there would be a program. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't be possible.
guessing you are running windows, go into your network connections and select the wireless and the wired connection (being on your laptop of course) and select bridge. you will however need either a crossover Ethernet cable between the desktop and laptop or have a nic that supports doing it in software. and i believe you have to check allow other users to use this internet connection (your wireless adapter) and make sure to do that before you create the bridge because i don't think you can otherwise. and if i forgot something (which i am sure i probably did) you can simply google how to use a laptop as a wireless adapter for the 360 (very common walkthrough and has the same concept)
