    It can be done but you may not enjoy it and other gamers may get fed up of your connections being poor (lagging). Also, word of caution, it could end up being very very very expensive.

    The problem with setting up an Xbox 360 with mobile broadband is the amount of steps involved.
    If you mis-click on just one step then nothing works.

    Like someone else mentioned, it has the potential to be laggy. If you’re cool with that here’s the steps you need to take.

    I’m not sure if you’re using a Mac or Windows laptop so here’s the steps for the Windows version. Before I get into it though, it’s easier to look at these steps from the source I provided. It has screenshots of each step to go along with it.

    Here’s the rundown:

    1. Click on Start Button

    2. Control Panel

    3. (search for Network) click on Network and Sharing Center

    4. Under tasks, click on Manage Network Connections (not to be confused with manage wireless networks)

    5. Locate your mobile broadband adapter’s connection and ‘right click’ it

    6. Click Properties

    7. Click on the Sharing Tab

    8. Check the box “Allow other users to connect through this computer’s connection”

    9. There should be a drop down box that lets you select the Local Area Connection (it will appear in the ‘home networking connection’ box below that has wireless network connection. Click ok twice (until boxes are gone).

    10. To start using the connection you’ll need to close your mobile broadband connection and then restart it.

    11. Plug the ethernet cable in your Xbox 360

    12. That’s it. Now It’s Xbox setup time.

    13. On your Xbox, go to “Settings” and select “System Settings”.

    14. Under “System Settings” select “Network Settings”.

    15. Under “Network Settings” select “Configure Network”.

    16. Since you’re using the Ethernet cable you should see the following notice pop up. Hit ok.

    17. When the “Configure Network” screen pops up with the “basic settings”, setup your info to be automatic (the same as your 3G mobile broadband connection’s default setting) :

    18. Test out your connection and you should be good to go.
