Default Connection Bridging

ok, i have a quick question, i recently bought an adapter so that i can play xbox on my laptop, now with most new laptops (mine is a dell 1501, specs in sig.) they have the built in wireless and an ethernet port, is there a way to bridge these two so that the ethernet acts like a port on a router?? but the wireless is getting the connection? so i can connect the xbox?

when i would do this in the connections wizard i could bridge the connections, and then i would loose internet on the laptop, even though it was connected to my network, and when i hooked up the xbox to the ethernet port (while bridged) the light was orange not the usual green

any ideas, or ways to bridge these two connections?
