Unless the Xbox has a web browser where you can login to BT Wifi, then you are not going to be able to establish an Internet connection.

If you enable Internet sharing on your laptop, then you may be able to connect the Xbox using a cable, but you will still have to login to BT wifi on the laptop, and you will get disconnected every two hours.

 

Much easier to use your main BT home hub SSID, or an Ethernet cable.

 

There are some useful help pages here, for BT Broadband customers only, on my personal website.

See this link on how to connect your xbox through your computer.

As Keith has said you will then need to log onto to BTWifi.

 

The connection might not be fast enough for gaming though.
