Default still can't correctly bridge connections.

i have a wireless card, on my laptop which runs windows xp home edition, and i need to bridge connections from my laptop to my xbox, (i cant afford their wi-fi USB) whenever i bridge connections, even if the other end of the Ethernet cable isnt plugged into xbox, it says my wireless has disconnected, i can't figure out how to fix this. any help would be great, thanks.

Default Re: still can't correctly bridge connections.

From a brief google search:
Are you using a crossover cable (the one that came with the XBox is not a crossover).
Did you right click on your wireless and select PROPERTIES>ADVANCED tab>Check the 2 boxes about half way down the screen that say allow other users to connect through this computers internet connection and allow other users to control or disable the shared network connection?

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

there some cases i encounter that some laptop will automatically disable the wireless capability once it detected a connection on the LAN.
