    okay, well I recently started bridging a few days ago. I used the complete bridging guide and bridging in Gears of war 2 to do so. It was going great until today. For some odd reason, A few matches ago my bridging stopped working. When I tried bridging host, it said connecting to match (meaning I didn't get host), but I did the exact same thing I did before when I bridged host. It was working perfectly about 1-2 hours ago. Does anyone else have this problem? If you can help that'd be great, if not, oh well? :smile: I'll probably try again in a few hours.

    Restore your computer to back when it was working, and reset your router

    You need to go into your xbox network config and set it up manually... I'm going to make a tutorial for it soon I think, so I don't have to keep writing this.

    i saw a tutorial on that static ip thing and it says your new ip shouldnt be in some range of your old one so what should i put mine as if the old one was 192.168.1.200?

    Powercycle your router... and make sure that you have port forwarding and all that enabled
