PC and Xbox 360 to share my internet connection

  Armchair 18:23 11 May 2008

I'm with Tiscali, and using a Speedtouch 330 ADSL modem. I've connected the ethernet cable from the 360 to my PC (ie RJ45 port), and I have my PC connected online as per usual. What else do i have to do?

According to Tiscali, I have to:-

Windows XP

To use ICS to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem configured to connect to the Internet.

1. Log on to your PC as Administrator or Owner.
2. In Windows XP, ICS is automatically loaded during installation.
3. On the taskbar, click Start, right-click My Network Places, and select Properties.
4. Right-click Local Area Connection.
5. On the shortcut menu, click Properties and click the Advanced tab.
6. Below Internet Connection Sharing, click the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
7. Click OK.
The connection to the Internet is shared to your Xbox console.

It doesn't work, though. Has anyone done this before and can guide me through the process?
