So, I have a desktop computer, which connects the the internet through a wireless USB dongle, and I have an xbox 360 connected via the ethernet port on my computer. On the computer, I've set up a static IP address (192.168.1.16) and set the ethernet to connect through the wireless connection (which I've set to "Share this connection"):
DNS settings are the same as the wireless connection
I've also forwarded all the required ports, as originally I had this working, but I wanted to try to get my NAT to open instead of moderate, and I ended up screwing everything up
When the xbox is turned on, it does the normal "acquiring network address" business, and then appears as connected on my computer. However, from the xbox, I cannot connect to Live if I let it automatically choose the IP settings, or if I set them to the same as the ethernet connection, IP:192.168.0.1, gateway: 192.168.1.16
I've tried bridging the two connections, which works, but it sets the NAT to strict and only works once. After the xbox is turned off, it won't connect again.
I've tried to be as clear as possible, but tell me if I forgot to include something.
I have read probably every article on the web about this, and they all say to do different things, so if someone could help, I would love you forever
