    Power cycle your router, then try the wifi

    EDIT>>> apologies, i started at the last page in this issue..

    The link below is a youtube tutorial with step by step instructions on how to connect Xbox360 to your 3g dongle via laptop.

    The instructions are in a win7 environment, but win8 should be the same, you just have to get to the same network settings via a different route, but the adjustments are the same.. Good luck

    Connect Xbox 360 to Live using USB dongle (network sharing) - YouTube

    I don't have a router to power cycle, I connect to internet with a 3G dongle

    Standby. When I get home I will test something out.

    Edit.

    Meaning, when I get home I will use my phone to simulate a 3g dongle via usb. Then I'll figure out what happens when I try to broadcast the signal.

    Did you try disabling the "Computer Browser" service I mentioned in a an earlier reply about the ICS service? This service is on by default in W8 and doesn't play nice with anything shared including hardware.

    So, I tried it with my phone. Basically, I tethered my phone to my laptop via usb and then turned my laptop into a wifi router. I then used my tablet to connect to the signal. I also used my ps3. Everything I tried worked.

    I was hoping it wouldn't work so I could see what the problem is. Something is different about your laptop that is preventing you from doing this. Since it worked on my side without a hitch, I've no idea what could be wrong with yours.

    Graav, check your private message.

    It does not make sense that you would have to turn off those services! Firewall, Browser, Server, Workstation - All required for the basic connecting of the computer into outside networks!

    The only time I shut down a firewall os for an automotive program called Tracs which serves a database to several computers. And there is nothing like what is happening with that program going on here,
