Hi, I am trying to use my new 3G AT&T card on my Xbox 360™. I have done this bridging thing before but, instead just picking up wi-fi signals, not using a 3G card. Xbox Live Over 3g - Digiex this forum is kinda told me how to do it.

Anyways when I get to the step

InsaneNutterI’ve attached an image of how to share the internet connection in Vista, if you’re on XP it’s the same Idea the menu’s will just look a bit different.

Good Luck! :)

where you bridge the connections when it is shared there is no option to bridge it?

No one knows what is the problem? It does it on any internet connection (not using 3G card) for some reason?

Have you tried selecting bridge while using a different connection? Just to see if the 3g adapter shows in the list?

You said that you have bridged connections before, this should not have been different.

It is possible that the 3g connection is not recognized as a bridgable connection type. Or it could have that option disabled, to prevent sharing the connection, or hogging the bandwidth.

Perhaps a Windows update will solve the issue?

It is likely that few have had the opportunity, or desire, to try it. 3G connections are expensive, and lag-ridden. They are usually slower than other connections. Bridging the connection introduces more lag.

Either way, I'm not sure why you're having trouble. Are you sure the the wifi is setup correctly?

I have a Telstra wireless USB dongle, and i use it on my Xbox. Go into network connections, and right click the icon representing your 3G card. Go properties and go to the next tab. Tick the "Share Connection" box and your good to go :) If you need more help you can PM me :) Hope i helped.

Surely using a mobile internet dongle like this is slower and costs more money than it's worth?
