Sharing internet connection wifi router -> Fedora 10 -> Xbox 360


Hi!

My point is to set up internet connection sharing between fedora 10 and xbox 360 (reason is that i have only WiFi connection in my house and i don't want to buy wifi adapter for xbox).

I have laptop with Fedora 10 on it (I'm using WICD network manager coz it's best manager for WPA2 enterprise connections) which is connected to internet trough wifi router (linksys with tomato firmware). I've tried some iptables method but it didn't worked.
So is there any easy way to set up connection sharing?

Thanks dude, but I'm wondering if there's any simple (ad least as simple as it could be) guide how to share your connection trough ethernet cable (so Xbox can have like DHCP setts R somewhat like that). This guide from link is just too much for me and I'm not an admin :P.

For that you need to enable masquerading (nat) on the netbook.
Take a look at

what did you do?
What doesn't work?
can you connect from the Netbook to the outside ?
can you connect to the Xbox 360 to the Netbook?
can you ping the outside, the netbook, the gateway.....
did you enabled masquerading?
Do you see the 2 interfaces on the netbook?
how are the ip's setup, netmask, gateways......
....
