Bridging and sharing are basically the same. when you bridge you are sharing. So why not revert back to the working setup?

When using internet connection sharing with Xbox 360 I have to go into the network settings on the Xbox every time I turn it on and allow it to automatically detect settings. It works after that for me anyway.

My advice would be to purchase a new router. Unless you want to keep messing with your network all the time.
