Question about Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 (SKWIFIX360)
I am going insane trying to connect my xbox 360 up to my laptop so i have the use of xbox live.
The problem is the stupid ip adress.
Ok i've been searching through google, and on utube and i have step by step instructions on how 2 do it.
. Like i've built a bridge between my local network and wireless.
. And i've gone to network sharing centre and all that stuff.
Ok i'm the only one that seems to be having this problem cause when i click on wireless network and go to properties, it prompts me to continue so i do. But...
Then up the top i Apparently should have i share tab button. Which I'm supposed to click on then check one box and uncheck the other.
Now here's where the problem is. I DON'T. And i'm getting really annoyed trying to find this share tab so i can check one box and uncheck something.
Please help me find that share tab or find an alternitive way of connecting my xbox via my laptop which is a Hp pavillion Entertainment Pc With windows vista, so i have xbox live.
Normally you would connect your xbox directly to the router. Is there a
reason you are trying to connect to your laptop instead? (distance,
If that is what you truly want to do then first thing make sure you are using a CROSSOVER cable to connect your laptop and xbox together. standard network cables only apply to connecting to routers, switches, and other network controlers. If you are connecting two devices directly you must use this type cable. It is ussally red.
The share tab is only for sharing dialup connections to LAN connections. You are sharinbg two LAN connections so all you need to do is bridge them and make sure there are in the same IP group. Check the status of your wireless card to see what address the router is assigning to it. Then assign the IP to the wired adapter with a differnt higher number.. Example: If your wireless card is 192.168.1.100 then make your wired adapter 192.168.1.151 This should make it work.
Again, it would be much easier to connect your XBOX to the router like it was intended ;)
