    hey im trying to setup my pc thats wirelessly connected to the internet with my xbox 360 im using the ethernet cable that came with the xbox and have that hooked up to the xbox. When i hook those two up the lan connection says limited or no connection allowed, I tried enabling Ics I get a messege saying : An error occured while internet connection sharing was being enabled. Internet connection sharing cannot be enabled. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP adress that is required for automatic IP addressing.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? thanks.

    *I know this will probaly get locked but ive allready asked this in the helping forum and seems no one replies..I wud just like an answer*

    Go to your network connections. Highlight your local area connection and your wireless connection. Right click, select 'bridge connections'

    yeah i did that then my wireless connection didnt have internet access so i didnt know if that was good or not, so I deleted the bridge. Am I supposed to bridge them and then I'm able to enable ICS on my Wireless Network Connection?

    You shouldn't need to mess with ICS from my experience

    If you have a bridge, you don't want ICS. Only do one or the other.
