    Yes you can do that. Just run the ethernet cable from your 360 to your PC then go to your network settings and set it up to share the connection from wireless to the ethernet. Thats what I do.

    Thats exactly what I do as well... You get a 360 or a regular X-Box?

    I would do that but $100 is just too much for something that is probably worth $20. I would rather just drill a whole in my wall and run an ethernet cable from my router.
