    I'm on wireless right now and there's no way for me to use a port on a modem, is there anyway to use my laptop as a modem so that I can get onto xbox live?

    turn on internet sharing via system preferences

    you have to manually set the ip address and DNS address on the xbox I can't remember how I got mine working but if you google it you should be able to find out

    These are the instruction I use to connect my macbook to my xbox360 and use live:
    Use ethernet from xbox360 to macbook.

    Connect xbox live from macbook


    Mac OS X
    1) System Preferences-->Network-->Built-in Ethernet-->TCP/IP
    2) Set Configure IPv4: to Manually
    - Set IP Address: to 10.0.0.1
    - Set Subnet Mask: to 255.255.255.0
    3) System Preferences-->Sharing-->Internet
    4) Set Share your connection from: to Airport
    - Set To computers using: to Built-in Ethernet
    - Click Start and than Start

    XBOX 360
    1) While in the Dashboard, navigate to the System blade
    2) Network Settings-->Edit Settings-->IP Settings-->Manual
    3) Set IP Address to 10.0.0.2 ( The first three segments i.e. 10.0.0 will need to match what you set in step #2 of the Mac OS X section )
    - Set Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0
    - Set Gateway to 10.0.0.1 ( What you set in step #2 under the Mac OS X section )
    - Click Done
    4) Go to DNS Settings
    *** NOTE: I set the primary to my router and the secondary to my ISP's primary. You can find your router's IP by going to your MacBook and to System Preferences-->Network-->Airport-->TCP/IP
    *** NOTE: You can usually find your ISP's DNS servers in your routers status page, see the manual that came with your router for more information
