Windows 7: Xbox 360 Bridge Connections??? Help!!

Xbox 360 Bridge Connections??? Help!!

I know there's billions of threads about this all over the internet, but after trying numerous different solutions, i still am not able to receive any form of communication from my laptop to my Xbox 360 via Ethernet cable. I am using a Netgear WNR2000 wireless router to access the internet from my laptop. Every time i try to bridge my connections between "Wireless Internet Connection" and "Local Area Connection," a bridge is created but nothing actually happens. I read cross i shown on the internet connection on the system tray icon, but can still access the internet from my laptop but not my Xbox. Also looking at my "Local Area Connection" it says it is unplugged, when clearly it is not (connected to both laptop & Xbox). Theres definitely not a problem with the Ethernet cable, neither a problem with the Ethernet port.
I want to bridge my connection to my xbox clearly because of the horrendous price of the official wireless adapter.
Also in my network connections, there is another wireless connection (Wireless Network Connection 2) which says it is Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adapter, which is disabled but also showing full connection. I haven't a clue what this is .
I've also tried enabling sharing in the connection's properties tabs.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

why do you need to bridge connections?
does the wifi stop fuctioning if you have both lan and wifi enabled?

No worries i've got it working now! I realised my router wasn't allowing the Xbox's MAC address, so i configured it by adding it to the allow list & now all is well!

And i needed to bridge connections because my router is downstairs & my Xbox is upstairs next to my laptop, and figured it would be the easiest way to share my connection without buying an expensive Xbox wireless adapter.

How did you allow the 360's Mac Address?
