    ok.. i'm connecting my xbox 360 to my computer using the Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing.. i plugged the ethernet cable into my comp and xbox and got it to recognize the connection but its failing the IP Address test.. i've been following instructions here: Xbox 360: You cannot connect to Xbox Live: The console fails the IP Confirmed test ... but it lost me when it said this:

    ipconfig your computer from the command prompt.

    take that IP address, and change the one on your xbox to x.x.x.y
    where y = any number from 1-255, although i would use 233 since noone would think to.

    is that ICS computer using a static or dynamic IP? not sure if you can pass gateway traffic through the computer with an xbox though.
