We will get there. Im thinking network congestion. Why would you have to bridge connections? You have 1 cable in w xbox cabled, and 1 laptop wireless ly connected to the same router. Does it only happen when gameplaying??
Sorry for the delay... I was busy yesterday.
Zigzag: I'm not sure what you are asking in your first question (wired and wireless).
My desktop is connect wirelessly to my router (which is not a possible "wire" distance). I need to get internet to my xbox which is next to my computer. About a month ago I a friend of mine set it up and it wasn't lagging. Then I moved positions so I was closer to the router and was able to get a wired connection. When I moved back I tryed to set it up again. I first tried "Bridging" (which I think was what my friend set up)... and I just tried sharing the connection like Dark suggested but there doesn't seem to be a difference.
I have tried running a speedtest while in an xbox game and also with the bridge disabled... but it is still the same. I just went under the networking tab in the Task Manager while playing a game and the graph never got aboe .5% Wireless Network connection usage. I was lagging as bad as usual... but next to my name there is the connect speed (Green, Yellow, Red) and I was mainly in the yellow and going into the red every now and then. But my network usage stayed the same.
