Exclamation Need to connect AIRPORT BASE>XBOX>MAC>ROUTER

HELP!! Need to connect:

AIRPORT BASE>XBOX>MAC>ROUTER

My current set-up works fine. But I would like to connect my spare Airport Base Station (older ufo model) directly to my Xbox so I can connect to Xbox Live. This way, I don't have to use my laptop as a bridge all the time.

Current Set-Up: XBOX>LAPTOP>ROUTER>MODEM
My wife's PC is connected directly to the modem, then my wireless Linksys router connects from that to my laptop.

Is this possible? I think I need to either connect the Airport BS to my laptop and then my laptop to the router. This in effect would be two bridges. Or I can just connect the Airport BS to my router directly. The only problem is that I don't know how in the hell to do it properly. And of-course after I have the correct set-up ready, I have to input all the right numbers and addresses into my Xbox.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks and email if you have any questions.

Best,

Jason
