Found 23rd Mar 2009
Hi All,

I have a freind who just recently bought an Xbox360.

The only way to connect the Xbox is to bridge his internet connection from his Desktop PC.
He has a Belkin internet dongle that connects to the internet wirelessly.

Can some 1 help me with connecting his Xbox360 to the wireless internet via the dongle?
In Network Connections the wireless dongle does not appear so we cannot just select the LAN and wireless and bridge them.

Can anyone help?

Thanx, Rep awaits..

Hi, the wireless dongle doesnt appear in the connection thing.
only the LAN appears

My advice is to get a pair of homeplugs - much more stable.
