Tether an Android phone to Xbox LIVE with Windows 7

Imagine… Xbox LIVE via your Android phone. Amazing… if you can figure out how to do it. But don't worry, this video is here to save the day! Watch and learn how to tether your Android cell phone's internet to your Xbox LIVE using the help of Windows 7. After watching this, you'll have no problem connecting to Xbox LIVE via your Android phone's internet.

This process involves tethering the smartphone to a Windows 7-based computer via USB, and then bridging that connection via Ethernet to the Xbox 360. You'll need to use PdaNet, which is a free tethering application which allows you to share the phone's internet connection with your PC and Xbox 360.

Besides PdaNet, you will also need the MTU Setting Modifier.

The computer used in this video was a 13" MacBook Pro running Windows 7. The phone used was an HTC Droid Incredible from Verizon Wireless running Android 2.1.

Disclaimer: It is advised that you subscribe to a tethering plan if you are going to do this to avoid extra charges.
