  1. Hey guys and gals, Im trying to create a network bridge to connect my xbox 360 to my lap then to my router.

    But there's a problem. When I create a bridge between Wireless and LOCAL CONNECTION 2 ( Only one I have ) The bridges gets made, but I cant get online.

    It says " CONNECTED " But I really cant go online. Inserting ETHERNAL cable wont help..

    Some suggestions? Windows XP btw

    Sorry im confused

    Are you saying that your trying to plug your 360 into the laptop as this has a wireless connection and then use that to get out to the internet...

    Why not just plug the 360 into the router

    Buy the wireless dongle for the 360 and go wireless...

    Or look up internet connection sharing for XP, this would allow you to recieve the net via the wireless NIC and use the inbuilt NIC to share the internet
