Default Bridging Connections

I have 2 Network cards so I can hook 1 cable to computer and a cross over cable from my computer to my xbox.. so they can both be online at the same time.

I realize that for this to work I have to bridge my connections.. I have done this all before my computer crashed about 6 months ago.. and it worked..

Now, When I bridge my connections, My x-box can get online but not my computer. To me that doesnt make very much sense becuase the internet connection is going through my computer...

I dont know whats wrong now...
someone please help.

Do you have a router or is your PC connected straight to the Cable or DSL modem?

Use winroute and make sure that the connection is routed through the correct card. You could also try switching network cards if need be.
