Network Bridge


A

I previously had a setup where my dlink wireless card bridged with my
lan card, and the network was extended to my 360. That card
suspiciously broke, and now I am left with a belkin F5d8010 pre- N
wireless PCMCIA wireless adapter in my laptop. Whenever I try to bridge
the 2 connections, the internet says it is connected and the bridge says
it is connected, but the internet is actually disconnected. I have read
online about force compatibility mode or promiscuous mode, but I don't
know what to do. Help!!

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article describes how to force
Compatibility mode:
