Is there a way to take a internet/network connection from a wireless router that will enable the wireless signal to be put out through another device that allows ethernet cables to be run from it? Basically, I want to eliminate two long ethernet cord connections (PC and XBOX 360 Live) but do not want to spend $50 on wireless card for PC and $99 on an XBOX wireless adapter. Thank you. P.S. - Or less, there is a way to run XBOX Live from a wireless card that is running on a PC.

You could connect the Xbox to a computer or laptop, and bridge the network connection. That way you'd have a wireless signal going to the computer, and then a cable to the Xbox.

Yes, bridge it, or allow internet connection sharing on your wireless adaptor

How do I bridge the network connection?

Also, with internet connection sharing, where would the ethernet cord plug in from the xbox 360?

You select the two that you want to bridge, right click one of them and choose bridge.
