    How to Bridge Yourself Host Wirelessly using a Laptop

    -Things you'll need:
    -Zone alarm pro, bridged connections, and most importantly, FULL PARTY. <-- You MUST have a full party!!! Wingman WORKS.

    -Open Zone Alarm pro, and switch to the firewall slide. Click on the Zones tab, and do the following:
    Add the IP, 65.55.42.130 and name it XBL.
    Then add an IP RANGE, that should look like this:
    [​IMG]
    Name it gow ip range.
    Then click OK, and then hit APPLY.
    After you done that, click the EXPERT tab.
    Click add, and name it whatever you want. I named mine "self bridge"
    After you done that, click MODIFY under the SOURCE section. Add location- IP ADDRESS.
    [​IMG]
    Name it, MY IP and guess what? Enter your IP address! Then click OK.
    Then under the DESTINATION spot, click modify- add location- trusted zone.
    Then click modify(again)- add location- IP RANGE, then fill it out with the gow ip range from before.

    [​IMG]
    After you finish that, click OK, then click OK again.
    Click APPLY, then go back to the main tab.

    Now for the Gears of War 2 part. Make a public game, and invite FOUR friends. Get all their IP addresses, and put them under TRUSTED in the ZONES section. After you done that, go back to the MAIN tab and put your "internet zone security" (firewall) on HIGH and make sure you can hear all your friends talking. If you can't, then you entered the wrong IP address for who ever is not talking.
    After you confirmed everyones IP, put your firewall on HIGH, and start the game. Wait about a minute, then lower it down to MED.
    After a few seconds (probably more) the loading screen will pop up, which means your connecting to the game.
    IMPORTANT: As soon as the loading screen pops up, PUT YOUR FIREWALL ON HIGH. Wait about 5-10 seconds, then lower it down to OFF.
    If you done this correctly, you should be host.

    Ways to check:
    When ever theres a counter counting down the time, put your firewall on HIGH. If the counter still continues to count down, then your host. If it stops, your not host.

    I have done this about 20 times and it has not failed me yet!

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Would this work with other games as well? And does it have to be via a wireless laptop?

    I'll look around for you. I had a problem and found one that works on Vista Ultimate SP1 surely they made one for 64 bit and if not i will find an alternative.

    It shouldn't matter, both of them worked on wireless for me. Now I'm doing a different way that I like better.

    Well saying you can't get it to work doesn't help anyone. Are you on a wireless laptop? are your connections bridged? did you read my tutorial?
    etc. tell me some things first..

    Do you NEED to be on a wireless connection for this to work?

    Because I'm on my PC and I'm hardwired through my router which wires to my modem..

    So should I use the other method or do they work the same?

    And whats the IP for CoD:WaW
