    Hi all
    1st of all, I want to say that this website has helped me a lot in the passed and i LOVE this place, but i recently hit a problem that i could not find the solution for so i made an account.

    Situation: I have an Xbox360 in my room along with a computer running XP which is connected wirelesslly to the internet. The modem and the router are downstairs and there is also another computer downstairs. Both the PC's are wirelessly connected with a wireless card.

    Since I want to play XBL upstairs i bought a crossover ethernet cable which i have connected to the computer NIC card and than connected the other end to the xbox360. After that i bridged my wireless internet with the NIC and everything worked fine.
    Problem: The Xbox360 cannot connect and i get an "IP Address" error.

    I dont know what i did wrong. Help would be extremely appreaciated. I dont know if this helps or not but this is what i get when i do "IPConfig/all"
