i recently had windows 7 ultimate installed and after i had it for a while decded that wanted to switch back to windows xp. while i was using windows 7, i had a network bridge setup so that i could connect to xbox live (had my xbox connedted to my desktop with wifi). it worked flawlessly, but now since i installed xp, i cannot bridge the connections. everytime i try to do so, the wireless adapter goes to "not connected".

While Win7 likes to use a network bridge for ICS, Win XP does not. For XP you can use the guide in the link below to set up ICS.

i was about to give up until i kept on seeing forum posts concerning zonealarm. so i figured that the eset program i use could be affecting the connection sharing im trying to do. so any help on trying to get that setup that would be much appreciated.

Uninstall them both then follow the guides. I don't do security software, IMO way too many variables with A/V softwares for me to figure them all out, I do networking.
