Windows 7: Network bridge problem

Network bridge problem


I'm using a bridged connection so that my ps3 can connect through my computer (better speed then with ps3s wireless), but I have a small problem.

the ps3 can connect to the internet and everything seems to work fine, but after 10 min of gaming I will get a network error saying that I'm not connected to the internet.

After repairing it'll work again. Any idea whats wrong and how to fix it?

Hi there! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. First, could you fill in the rest of your system specs? That would help us out a lot.

I'm guessing the "not connected" error is occurring on the PS3, so what does your PC's network connection look like before and after that error occurs? Also, is your PC receiving its internet connection wirelessly or via ethernet?
