    Hi all, I'm trying to set up a network bridge to get internet for my 360 via my laptop. I followed the directions on tutorials online:

    - Connect ethernet cable to laptop/360
    - Select the wireless and local area connections in Network Connections and right click > bridge

    At this point, all of the connections (wireless, LAN, bridge) all say they're connected, and I cannot browse the web via my laptop, and I can't connect to XBL. I tried Googling but I haven't had any luck. Did anyone else run across this problem?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure you need to change your network settings on the 360. I forget what they are exactly though, maybe someone can chime in.

    Stop being cheap.

    1) buy a long ass ethernet cord or
    2) buy a wireless kit.

    You can buy the latter for like 50 bucks on half.com

    Bridging the connections didn't work for me either. Just did ICS and it worked (albeit with limited connection)
