Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help?

I have been trying to connect my Xbox through my Laptop (Dell Inspiron 1525 - Windows Vista) which required me to bridge my wireless connection with my local area connection which will be linked to the Xbox,

I have done this after a few attempts, but the problem is I have no network bridge icon!!! The connections both say there are bridged but no Icon, it did pop up for about a second and disappear and I have tried repeating the bridge but still no Icon, I need the icon so I can go into setting to complete my Xbox connection.

I know I can go and buy a Xbox wireless adapter but I hate the thought of this beating me and if I canít fix it thatís what Ii will have to do.

Any suggestions please??

I've not come across this before. Try right clicking on the bridged network adapters and selecting Remove from Bridge. They should then not show as being bridged. Now try recreating the bridge.
