      Connecting Xbox 360 to Internet Via PC Help?

      Hi

      Wondering if anyone could help me set up my xbox 360. Currently i have connected the xbox to the PC by ethernet and bridge the connection with the wireless one currently on the PC.

      This seems to work the first time but will only work for a certain amount of time and will never work again when i turn off the xbox or PC and start them up again i have to disable everything and set up the bridge again.

      I'm running windows vista ultimate, belkin usb adapter

      Anyone have any suggestions?

      Thanks

      I take it you have a router, i would recommend bypassing the pc and connecting straight to the router.

      the reason why i'm connecting through the PC is that i'm not near the router and don't have the wireless adapter for xbox 360
