Red X On Connection

if it isn't one thing its another...
i am thinking it it might be because i have bridged my connection for my 360, but i have a red x on my network connection but i still have full internet.
i already searched and did many steps...even the cmd one
but no luck.
so could it be from my wired 360 via bridge connection?

Why isn't the 360 connected through the router instead? Any particular reason?

Bridging a connected wireless network with a unplugged Local Area Network, you will still get unplugged Local Area Network. It says "unplugged" for a reason. Unless you have it ethernated lol.

A quick way to get rid of it is to disable the Ethernet connection.

If you need to use it the future, just go in and enable it. I've found that the system keeps track of the parameters you have set (in my case static IPs) and they are there when you re-enable.
