Alright, so. I recently acquired a VERY gently used Xbox 360 Elite, which I have sitting next to my computer, using my main monitor for it (just need to hit the source button
Now, being that the Wireless adapters run at $50 (WAAAAAY too much), and my router is on the other side of the house, I was looking for a way to connect to XBL.
I successfully achieved this by bridging my Local Area Connection (XBox is connected to comp with a Cat5) and my Wireless Connection (802.11N).
However, the bridge tutorial that I saw here had this:
You should not create a bridge between an Internet connection and a network connection because it creates an unprotected link between your network and the Internet, which makes your network accessible to anyone on the Internet.
So, would this mean that I SHOULD NOT bridge my LAN and Wireless connections (even though I have a modem to wireless router, to computer then XBox)? Or is it safe?
Now secondly, I know about the shared internet connection thing. When I enabled it on my LAN, the wireless could not connect to ANY network. I finally did a diagnose, and it now works correctly. However, the XBox cannot connect like this.
I am thoroughly confused!
Any and all help (as always) is appreciated!
