Re: Use laptop as a Bridge?
Looking at my own network & comments by other members, I suspect that if there is a lot of traffic on your network, then Anytime+ will suffer to some degree. If you have an Xbox on your network, then this will be causing a lot of traffic when you are playing on it.
Basically I think that whilst your solution might be working, it isn't setup for the optimum performance. I am assuming that your Laptop is sharing it's WiFi connection and the Xbox is using the LAN port on the Laptop.
For the Xbox to work, you currently need to have your Laptop connected. If you want to do anything that requires heavy processing on the Laptop, then this will conflict with the Xbox. Also, should you take the Laptop away for a weekend, then no one can play with the Xbox in your absence.
I would seriously consider getting someone to come and have a look at your Router & network arrangements. I am sure that something is set wrong somewhere and that you would benefit from having it tidied up.

Re: Use laptop as a Bridge?Isitme - Im sure I have a crossover cable but I have successfully managed to use a cat 5 cable to hook up the xbox through laptop creating a bridge and hoped the sky + hd would do the same.
