I have a problem with bridging a network and wondered if I can solve the problem without a bridge - my bridge is being used elsewhere in another office.
I have downstairs a wired network with wireless ADSL router providing a simple wireless network.
Upstairs I have a PC connected to the network wirelessly. What I want to do is insert an XBox 360 upstairs and connect to the network so to go live. Without a bridge.
I was wondering if there is a way the XBox can connect to the PC either through a hub/switch or cross over, and use Internet Connection Sharing on the wireless NIC - routing all traffic at the router.
Seems a long way round but in theory it might work - I have tried it quickly using a laptop where the Xbox would be so it was easier to see progress - but I didn't get it working.
Any input (I know I need an xbox NIC or an ethernet bridge)...
