    I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 to a VPN with internet sharing, but whenever I click "allow internet sharing" on the VPN I get errors like error 800 or error 714 that say things like "couldn't esablish vpn connection" or something like "security settings not compatible." I've also tried remaking the VPN and turning off the firewalls but nothing works. Could someone help me out? Also, I've heard that I can use a bridge connection instead, but don't I need a wireless connection for that? If so, how can I do this?

    Not sure if I should post my specs or what info you'll need, but I'm using a PC with Windows XP and a DSL/Broadband wired connection for my PC and Xbox. My local area connection is: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. Also, please keep in mind that I'm a total non-expert when it comes to computers. I barely know what I'm doing, I just learned from tutorials.

    Why are you using a VPN for an Xbox?
