Windows 7: bridging and pppoe

You dial the broadband connection out of thin air? Do you have a build modem or some device that allows you to dial this connection?

the middle PC (this case PC2) is connected directly to the cable modem which (the modem) is operating in bridged mode and alows the computer (PC2) to send discovery packets in the isp network. of course it doesnt dial out of 'thin air', this is how pppoe simply works. The modem or pc2 doesnt have an ip assigned to it nor is dhcp runnnig, again that doesnt matter because its just how pppoe works too. once you establish a pppoe connection you get an ip assigned and dns and all that but in the new pppoe connection (the lan connection to the modem will never have an ip assigned). The modem does have a local IP but that is just for configuration, which i cant do anything with because it is locked by the isp too. Also i found out that the modem has an isp level network adress (which is hidden from visibility on the setup pages) that is used for it to communicate with isp tftp servers to receive software updates and configuration updates , nothing else.
i Dial the connection through the pc connected directly to the modem (doesnt not matter what ip i have on that interface, itll work, as long as it is connected directly to the modem or through a switch which is directly to the modem, it just isnt working through windows briging).
I hope you understand now.
cheers

Thank you, regardless of how you dial up/connect, there is a device called a modem (can be in various form and connection type) that you go thru inorder to get to your ISP (speaking from a home environment).

This connection is good with internet doesn't matter how many devices it goes thru to get internet, it is still a connection for PC2 - a "LAN" connection?. This LAN connection on PC2 should be able to be used as one of a bridging connection if it is recognised as a LAN connection (if not, then what is it showing as in your network connection?).

A LAN connection can be bridge with a Wireless network connection, where W7 has defined your particular LAN connection as one, or something else, that remain to be seen...in Network Connections.

its a a lan connection, and it is showing as one under network adapters. And the bridging works just fine ( i first had that message you have posted, but that was because i had internet sharing enabled -which wouldnt work, so i disabled that and the bridge between wireless and lan connection was set up successfully), the pc2 in the middle has no internet connection whatsoever but it can dial a connection through the ethernet port (lan) which is connected to the cable modem, but i dont want to dial it from that pc (the middle one in this case, pc2) but i want it to be dialed from pc1 , which is connected over wifi (ad-hoc) to pc2 , where on pc2 , the wireless adapter and ethernet adapter are bridged (thus connecting a straigh connection for pc1 to the cable modem).
idk what clearer than this to explain :P

Hello...
Rofl its so funny how you try to explain how your setup works but i have the same problem with my network setup its almost the same as yours but i connect with wifi to my router and then from pc 1 to pc 2 with Ethernet as far as I know the bridge of the two connections confuses the pppoe connection or something like that :P .

Let me know if you got it to work.

I am unable to create a true network bridge. I believe the problem is that whenever I plug an ethernet cable into my computer, my wireless shuts off. I was wondering how it would be possible to have both cable and wireless internet at the same time, in order for the bridge to be successful.
