Well, I've found that Windows 7 is somehow quite difficult to set up, maybe I didnt use Vista though. In XP, i didnt even have to bridge connection, just turned on the sharing function, plugged-in the ethernet cable and there you go. It worked the same way in windows 7 until recently it just doesnt work no more. So I tried bridge the connection, and set the ip on XBOX 360 manually. and it worked. funny thing is if i try to test my live connection, it'd connect flawlessly; however I still couldnt sign-in my live account though. I'm updating my dashboard atm, let see what gonna happen. cheers

Why people always try to bridge I'll never know.

Unbridge everything, make it how it was before.

If your laptop connects via wifi constantly (like mine, its my only means of high speed) then follow this;

Step 1:
Left-click this Attachment 22691


Step 2:
Right-Click the Wireless connection that you are connecting to. Then select Status.


Step 3:
Select Properties.
Attachment 22693


Step 4:
Select the Sharing tab and then check off both boxes.

Just thought I should add, this is EXACTLY how I connect my Xbox 360 to the internet. So there should be no problems.

this comes up on the active networks window

One moment.

EDIT: Okay try doing that, and have an Ethernet cable plugged into your laptop and run it to your 360, it should work. Mine shows it as the same too but I'm on XBL right now.
Attachment 22702

EDIT 2: Okay so it works fine even though it says 'no internet access', all you really need to do is just turn your Xbox 360 on, try connecting to XBL and it SHOULD work.

I have to go for a while, so if it doesn't work feel free to leave messages. I am sure others could help!

It stopped working on my 7 recently for some reasons. Anyway, I got it working now by using bridge connection method.

@Statico: Have you tried to config IP on Xbox 360 ??? Set it manually and let see if it worked

it looks like my lan does not have access to the internet
like if the wireless does not share with LAN

when I click the LAN to see it's properties, it says No internet access
in both IPv4 connectivity and IPv6

when my Wireless shows that it has internet access in the IPv4

i don't know whats the problem here

well, even your LAN says " no internet access", you still connect to xbox live if you follow one of the above method. good luck...

btw, there are so many cheaters on FIFA 09 servers these days...
