    Trying to bridge my wireless and ethernet connections. I can access the internet, but I have no connectivity on the ethernet connection... I have the IPCONFIG /ALL here. Any help at all would be much appreciated.

    Unbridge the connections do the following stack repair.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7.

    Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.




    After the reset, post another IPCONFIG /ALL please.

    You still have the bridge configured, I want you to remove that and post the IPCONFIG /ALL

    That DNS is a problem. From where does it come?

    Well, I'm thinking the DNS is from a modem/router in front of this router. Note that it's in a different subnet, so that should work, even with dual NAT layers.

    You're right! I wasn't thinking of that possibility. Sorry for the interruption.

    Now let's do the stack reset with it disabled, then try the bridge again AFTER restarting from the stack reset.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or Windows 7.

    Start, All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Still nothing... Got about 5 mins of connection on the ethernet this morning, then it disappeared. Here's my setup if it's pertinent

    Wireless network(eduardo)----PC----Belkin Router----XBox360

    Maybe need to static IPs?

    Is the Belkin router configured as a switch this way? If its Dhcp server is enabled you'll get random results w.r.t. the XBox360.

    JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

    Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

    Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

    Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

    Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

    Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

    Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

    Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

    This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

    For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

    Just tried that, set my router to an access point at IP 192.168.2.254 other pcs at 192.168.2.2-192.168.2.100, router disappeared. Then I couldn't turn DHCP off. Couldn't access however I tried, giving this up atm, too much brain power and not enough to spare ;o). Thank you both SO much for your help, I'll try this again when things calm down around the house. "bookmark"
