hi,
i am trying to create a network bridge!
i have 3 pc,s connected together
and it was all working before i had to reinstall windows again.
my pc is the main pc!
it is on broadband and the other 2 connect through mine. but when i click on bridge connections it comes up saying

- 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.

any ideas!
thanks, agent 47!

You only need to use bridging if you have two different networks running together i.e. One wired network and a wireless network on the same machine.

How do the 2 networked machines connect to your main machine ?

The other thing is that Internet Connection Sharing needs to be disabled when you create the bridge ( you re-enable it afterwards).

i have two network cards in my pc!
i had it all bridged before i reinstalled xp!
and the check box to allow internet connection sharing on all three networks is not ticked.
thanks.
