Problem with bridged connection.

I have a bridged connection from my computer (windows xp) to my playstation 3, using a cat5 crossover cable. This always worked fine for me in the past but ever since i had to reinstall windows on my computer i have been experiencing a small problem. When i switch on the playstation and the computer is already on, the playstation recieves an internet connection, but if i switch the playstaion off and on again, it will not recieve a connection, in fact it will not recieve a connection until the computer is rebooted, after which you can switch on the playstation and it will recieve a connection. I never experienced this problem before and would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. thanks.

sorry if i choose the wrong product but as you can see it's not really a product i am having trouble with..

How to setup my xbox to my pc


You will need a network cable (cat5) if you have wirless you will have network card at the back of the pc spare, if you dont you will need a network expansion card, plug the cable into the xbox network socket, it looks a bit like a phone socket, and plug the other end into the pc.
The best windows for doing this is windows vista if you are using wirless internet because it allows you to bridge a wireless and cable connection together, windows xp will not allow this.
Goto network connections, goto start and bring up the menu and click settings, then click network connections, you should have two or more connections, 1 wireless and 1 wired, which will be your xbox, you will need to bridge connections, to do the you will have to highlight the both connections by holding CTRL and left clicking on 1 and then the other, now right click on the highlighted connections, a drop down menu should appear, with a option to bridge connections, left click that and a bridge icon should appear in the window showing that the 2 connections are now bridged, you will now be able to use the computers internet access to enter xbox live. You may find that you will have a strict NAT set up on your router, to avoid this you will need to forward some ports, if you get this far post back i will try to run you through this process.
hope this helps and good luck.

Using a crossover cable to connect two computers.


Hi.

You can use a crossover cable to share files and folders between the two computers.

A crossover cable looks exactly the same as any Ethernet cable, but its internal wiring is reversed respect to the regular cables used to connect computers to routers or switches.Crossover cables have the 1st and 3rd wires (counting from left to right) crossed, and the 2nd and 6th wires crossed, thay can be recognised because the word Crossover is printed on top of the cable.

Before proceeding ensure that the cable you are using is a crossover. Crossover wiring isdifferent. By using an ordinary ethernet cable you will not be able to extablish a directconnection between computers.

To use the crossover you will need to disconnect any other cable connection to computer ethernet cards. Naturally both computers must have a wired network adapter installed .

After connecting the crossover, you will need to configure the network connection.

Turn off both computers, connect the crossover (cat5 or cat6) cable, and turn back on computers.

Ensure that all firewallare turned off, and on Vista answer yes to all requests of authorization for the new network.

On both computers go to system properties, and ensure that the two computers have the same workgroup.

Second step is going to Sharing and Security, in system properties, and sharing the files and folder that you want to transfer.

Once the folders are shared you will see in My computer (Computer on Vista) the folder shared from the other computer. Simply copy and paste the files.

You may be asked to restart computer after each step.

If after sharing files and folder you want to share Internet connection, then you will have to assign two IP addresses that are in the same range to the two connected computers.
An IP address is a series of numbers from 1 to 256, in the format XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX . The two IP addresses must share the first three numbers to share the internet connection. In the real case, you can set the IP adresses to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

How can I connect my ps3 to my computer modem?


Here is a general guide I wrote. For Vista, however, I think you will have to go to the sharing tab instead of the advanced tab when you are browsing the properties of a connection...
1. Get a CAT5 or CAT6 crossover cable. The cable that came with the PS3 is a normal Ethernet cable, therefore it cannot be used for this operation.
2. Make sure you have two sources for network communication. For example, you can have 2 ethernet ports on your computer, or you can have a wireless card and a Ethernet port etc. It helps to draw out a connection blueprint such as this:
DSL Modem > CAT5 cable > Network Card 1 > Computer > Network Card 2 > CAT5 Crossover cable > PS3
3. Connect your computer to the modem and verify that you have an Internet connection. Then, click on Start, go to settings, control panel. Double click on Network Connections, and identify the connection to your modem (Network card 1).
4. Right click on the modem connection, and choose properties. Next, click on the advanced tab (Sharing tab for Vista users), and check the “allow other users to connect…” checkbox. After the checkbox is checked, click on the “Home networking connection” drop down box and select the name of the second network connection. Click OK and exit the properties window.
5. Finally, connect the CAT5 crossover cable from the second network adapter of the computer to the PS3, and voila, your Internet connection is now routed to your PS3. Please be aware that your computer must be on in order for your PS3 to stay online. In the long run, a router may be a much better device to use than your computer, since it consumes only a fraction of the electricity than your computer does.

How to connect windows xp and vista by lan using crossover cabel please post full steps


Here are the steps to connect two PCs using a lan cable (crossover)--

1. Be sure that both computers are logged in to Windows.
2. Connect each end of the cat5 crossover cables in to the network cards of each computer.
3. Bootup both computers and sign them both on to Windows.
4. In order for both PC's to be able to communicate together, the Ethernet adapters will need to be configured with a static IP address and a common Subnet mask. As an example, assign one PC an IP address of 192.198.0.1 and assign the second PC an IP address of 192.198.0.2. Both machines should use the Subnet mask 255.255.255.0. Here's how to configure your Network Card: Go to Start>> Control Panel>> Network Connections>> Right click your Local Area Connection and select Properties. Scroll the list for the entry titled: Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click the entry and select Properties. Under the General tab, tick the box titled: Use the following IP address. Enter the IP address and Subnet mask that you would like to use. Repeat the steps above for the second computer system.
5. Be sure that both PC's have a common workgroup name of 15 characters or less. Here's how: Go to Start>> Control Panel>>System. Select the Computer Name tab. Click the Change button. Change the Workgroup name. Repeat these instructions on the second computer ensuring that both computers are named exactly the same.
6. Reboot both computer systems.
7. Next, open a command prompt on one of the computers by going to Start>>Run. Type in: command [Enter] or click OK.
8. Type: ping 192.198.0.2 (if you are using the computer assigned with 192.198.0.1) press Enter.
9. Five replies to your ping should be indicated.
10. Once you get the two computers to communicate successfully together, you can now enjoy the benefits of file sharing, printer sharing and Internet connection sharing.

Transfering data from one computer to another


I think there is no way to do that. You CAN do it, however, with a crossover cable. It looks the same as a regular cable, but it's not. With the crossover cable, just connect the two computers and give 'em two IP's in the same network. Then enable file sharing and it should work. Sorry, I can't go into much detail because I haven't done that in a looong time, but I think that's about it. Hope it helps.

Connection b/w two computers w/o a router


You need a crossover CAT5 cable like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119153
It must be a crossover cable not a straight cable.
Plug one end into the LAN port of your desktop and the other into the LAN port of your laptop.
Go to the control panel and click the Network Icon, in the list on the left click "set up a home or small office network" the wizard will walk you through it, it is very easy.
You will need to think of a name for your network (MSHOME is the default setting) and use that name on both machines and you will have to give each machine a name.

3 netopia 2247 routers daisychained


How far are you running the CAT5 cables from house to house?   CAT5e only has a solid range of about 150ft, and anything near 100ft is pushing it.  You may also need to use CROSSOVER cables when plugging routers into other routers. 
Also, who has the actual internet connection?  I'm assuming House 2 does.  One big problem is a router is your Gateway address.  And, if house 2 is the only one with a valid Internet connection (via DSL or Cable, etc), then the router in house 2 is the only "true gateway".  And, all 3 houses need to be in the same physical network (i.e. 192.168.1.0 range or whatever), and all computers should have the same Gateway address...which would be the IP address of the router in House 2.
What you really need in this situation is 1 router and 2 switches.  Put the router in House 2 and put switches in House 1 and 3.  That would be the best way to handle this problem.  It would also end your connectivity problems.
Cheers!

This can be accomplished by using a network cable called a crossover cable (cat5 type). This cable is used to connect two computers together. With everything off just to be safe connect your computer to the PS 3 using the LAN ports on each. Start the computer and get online with the um150 then turn on the PS 3. In Windowsxp go to start, programs,accessories,communications,
network setup wizard.Run the wizard. Click next twice and in the third window that pops up you should see Pantech usb modem which is the um150 and local area connection 1 for your computer.
Mine is realtek Ethernet NIC yours may be different but look to see if you have an ethernet connection with NIC in the description. If the box says that a cable or cables are disconnected click the ignore disconnected radial button and click next. In this window choose the top radial button that says
this computer connects directly to the internet. Continue through
the wizard, you won't need printer sharing, and it should have automatically checked the correct connections to be bridged. What this does is bridge the um150 with your NIC through to the PS 3 by the cable. Click next and name your computer and network, you can leave the defaults if you want. Click next to set up the network. At the last window you don't want to set up any other computers so choose the radial button that says "just finish the wizard" should be the last one. The downside to this is that the um150 uses a different IP address every time you connect to the internet so you will have to go through this procedure each time you connect. Now go to the PS 3 and network settings and choose check for wired connection and it should connect.
