    Hi, so here's my problem. I can't get the connection to work between my laptop (Windows 7) and my Xbox360. I am on a college-based connection as I am away at school. I can't find the router IP or how to even go about finding it.

    What I've tried:
    - Bridge-ing the connections, no success.
    - Upgrading the drivers on the ethernet side, no success.
    - Enabling "Internet Connections with ICS", no success.

    I really can't figure it out based on the other threads on these forums.

    I will give any information needed in-order to solve this.

    Side note: I used a Macbook Pro (my friend's), and got it to work until the DNS crapped out and told me it was the wrong DNS adresses. If you have any idea how to fix that, I'd appreciate it too.

    Is what you are trying to do permitted? Often it is not and you could be wasting your time, or getting into trouble if you succeed.

    For your laptop connected to the internet and the Xbox, but with no bridging and no ICS please show ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:


    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
