    Your ethernet connection is showing Media disconnected. I think that shouldn't prevent either a bridge or enabling ICS, but let's try to get that connected first.

    If you already have a cable between your computer and Xbox then there is a problem with the NIC, the cable or the Xbox.

    That looks good to me. I can see no reason why you can't create a bridge nor enable ICS.

    What exactly happens when you go into Network Connections and try to bridge the wireless and ethernet? If there is an error message tell us exactly what it says.

    Be aware that if you have a non-Windows firewall or security suite it could be causing you problems.

    In Network Connections you select the two networks, right click on one, and there is no Bridge Connections option?

    Let's see a screen shot of when you have the two networks selected and have right clicked on them. I'm looking for what you get in the same situation as I posted.


    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.
