Wireless Bridge help (xbox)

Hi, I have just purchased a Pheenet WAP-011a Wireless AP/Bridge and I am hoping to use it with my Xbox 360 to connect to my Linksys Wireless router but I have fallen down at the first hurdle!

I have connected the Pheenet bridge to my PC NIC and the network connection indicates that it is connected but when I browse to as advised in the very bad instruction manual it doesnt take me to the config menu for the bridge. Normally is my Linksys router but for setup purposes I switch the Linksys off so that it doesn't confuse the issue but still I have no joy.

I'm a total newbie when it comes to networking so have no idea what I am doing wrong. Any advice would be VERY welcomed.

Thanks, Ross :)

Configuring a wireless Ethernet client bridge can be quite tricky, making it even more important to buy a quality supported product, not just the cheapest thing you can find. ;)

To connect to your PC needs to be configured for the same subnet.

If you turn off the wireless router, then your PC almost certainly won't be on the same subnet -- it will get a different address assigned by Windows when DHCP fails.

You probably need to manually configure a temporary IP address in your PC NIC.
