Have you set up Internet Connection Sharing correctly on the Windows 7 machine ?

On the XBox you should use DHCP for LAN IP addressing.

you need to set a static ip address on your lan and on your xbox, they can not be the same address. So lets try ip address subnet gateway on your computer and subnet gateway on your xbox. Now you have to turn on internet connection sharing on your 3G modem and share that with your LAN. Should work.

Try this, i've used it to turn my laptop into a desktop wireless dongle:

Go in to Manage Network Connections, or a page that shows connections (LAN 1, LAN 2, WIFI, etc). Your 3g dongle should show up there. Drag a box around your dongle icon and the LAN connection (it might say ethernet) icon and right click. Click on Bridge Connections. This should create a pass-through to the internet no prob.
