    No one is going to know what your setup is by you just posting a picture of your network connections lol. You have to tell us what you did and show us what ips you have.

    I followed http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/gears-war-2-glitches/115146-best-vista-bridging-tutorial.html and it shouldn't matter what ips i have in zone alarm because when I put my firewall on HIGH nothing happens.. so the have to be a problem with the bridge.. if it helps my connection go from my modem to a router which my laptop connects wirelessly.. i connected an ethernet cable to my laptop then to my xbox360.. then went into manage network connections.. clicked on my wireless card then ctrl clicked on my LAN... and bridged the connections together.. I started up GOW2 then opened up zone alarm and made a party.. put my firewall on HIGH and invited friends and they somehow joined.. started it up and found matches..

    Post pictures of your Zone Alarm, and cain or whatever else you are using to bridge, then explain to me how your network is setup, ie: computer to router, xbox to router, etc. From there I can help you and diagnose your problem.

    I think i know what your problem is. Your using a ethernet cable going from your laptop to your xbox. You have to use a crossover cable or else you wont be able to connect to xbox live.

    Edit:You might not have all the ip's.Go back and make sure. There is an ip range also so if you dont have that then add that one too.

    Edit 2:You only have xboxs IP and the ip range, you need those plus like the other 5 ips in that tutorial. If you dont have those its not going to work.
