Thread: Bridge Connection Issue

  1. Bridge Connection Issue

    Upon trying to bridge the connection between a Local Area Connection and a
    Wireless network connection I keep getting a pop-up that states: "To create a
    Network Bridge, you must select at least two LAN or High-Speed Internet
    connections that are not being used by Internet Connection Sharing." I am
    basically trying to use the wireless internet capabilities from my laptop on
    a separate computer, thereby setting up a network. Any assistance would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Hi
    For Bridging the Host computer need to have to Network card (can be wire or
    and wireless). One card gets the Internet the other connects to the guest
    computer.
    If the Host computer is getting the Internet from your own Router that has
    DHCP that can provide an IP to the Bridged computer than you can use regular
    Bridging (for regular Bridging the Host computer need Win XP Pro, or
    Vista).
    If the Host computer is Not connected in this manner you need to use ICS.

    Hi
    I can explain more if you describe what is that you have there and what you
    intend to do with it, Otherwise I would have to write an On line Book to
    explain better the issues involved.
