Xbox live ip configuration on LAN via wireless.

  Lightchop 20:07 30 Jan 2005


Main PC has USB ADSL modem. Have succesfully installed a Belkin wireless network card. The second PC in my sons bedroom has also been fitted with an identical network card. I've created a working wireless (and internet) connection between the two. The main reason for doing this was to enable my son to play xbox live in his room (the xbox is adjacent to the PC). I've linked the second PC to the xbox via the NIC and a crossover cable. When attempting to share the connection, I'm getting an IP conflict. I understand why (after doing a bit of googling). What I can't find out is what manual ip / gateway / DNS settings I should create between the PC and xbox. Anyone help? Thanks.

.. just to add, it's been suggested elsewhere that if I use XP to create a network bridge between the wireless connection and the LAN (feeding the Xbox via the network card) this should do the trick.

Any views / thoughts on this?
