How to get an Xbox 360 to work with crappy hotel wireless?

Any tips on getting an Xbox 360 to work with wireless hotel internet that requires signing in via a webpage? I'm looking for some sort of "wireless-to-wired bridge" that would let me sign on via my laptop and then leech internet with my 360.

I purchased an Xbox 360 tonight and realized that it doesn't have a built-in wireless adapter and my hotel room doesn't offer ethernet ports.
What's more, even if I had a wireless adapter for the Xbox, I don't think I would be able to use the hotel's wireless due to the sign-on page that requires authentication.
The solution I have in mind (though I'll entertain any) is a "bridge" that would let me sign in as usual on my laptop and then share the laptop's wireless internet with the Xbox's ethernet port. Any tips / advice on getting this to work?
