    Hi I just upgraded from windows vista home premium to windows 7 ultimate. Anyways the way I usually connect my xbox to xbox live is by bridging the connection. So when I go to control panel,then network and internet,then network and sharing center,then on the left hand side change adapter settings.

    Right so this is what it turns up as

    Wireless network connection

    802.11 wireless lan card

    Wireless network connection 3

    Microsoft virtual wifi miniport Adapter #2

    Local Area Connection


    NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller


    Right I dont know what the microsoft thing is but it just says not connected and my internet runs fine so I just leave it alone..But Local Area Connection is suposed to say Xbox 360...and I bridge the connections..this worked on vista and there was no sign of this nvidia thing. Help please :confused::confused::confused:
