    i want to use my wireless adapter on my PC to transmit the internet connection out of the ethernet adapter on the PC.

    so... i tried highlighting both connections in network connections, and seclecting "bridge connections", but that just killed the internet connection on the PC.

    i want to transmit the interet connection to an Xbox 360... do i take a wire from the PC to a router then to the xbox?

    or do i take a wire straight from the PC to the xbox?

    thanks in advance guys!

    Once you make that bridge, you need it to be forced enabled. This is how I do mine (wireless -> PC -> crossover cable -> xbox1)


    1. open Command Prompt (type "cmd" in the Run dialog)
    2. type netsh bridge show adapter
    you should see a list of network adapters in your network bridge, the wireless and the one connected to your PS2.
    3. Make a note of the number next to the wireless connection under ID.
    4. type the following:
    netsh bridge set adapter # e
    Replacing # with the number of the wireless card.
    To check that it worked, run "netsh bridge show adapter" again and see the result.
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    will i need a crossover cable to do this like you have? this will share the internet between the xbox360 and the PC? or will it just give it over to the 360?

    thanks man!
