I have connected my ethernet to my xbox and the other end to my laptop and i am trying too bridge the connection so i can use xbox live but the ethernet connection on my laptop stops on "Acquiring network address" then it gets the "limited or no connectivity". Also the bridge on my network connections says not connected.

Any ideas?

step 1 Connect Your Ethernet Cable to Your Computer and Xbox

step 2 Change Your Internet Properties
you have to change the internet properties so that your computer will share wireless internet with the Ethernet adapter.

step 3 Repair the Ethernet Connection

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
Click Network Connections.
Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet.Click Properties.
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.

right click on the connection you use to connect to the internet, click properties
then select advanced
and then check the "allow others to connect through this internet connection"

then ok.

Why ignore 'the bridge connection bit'?
you will have problems (ip conflicts etc) using ICS as it basically turns your pc into a DHCP server, It's much better and simpler to create a bridge.

OP you should bridge your wireless connection with your Ethernet, and assign your 360's IP & DNS settings manually, also turning off windows firewall because it can interfere and its **** anyway......

Well if it was simpler then the op would not be asking what was wrong.

The solution given was the easiest and simplest way.

sure ICS should work :thumbsup:

If/when the op encounters problems my solution is the way it should really be done to retain full functionality though.
