    WEIRD networking problem! help!

    Right, so heres my setup.
    One usb wireless dongle - Linked to router, for internet access etc
    One onboard NIC - Linked to xbox for streaming media etc.

    I can use each connection fine on its own. However when I try and use the wireless connection then enable the lan connection I can no longer see any websites (everything http inc msger dies) , I can still access the router though.
    I think it must be the onboard nic putting itself infront of the wireless connection for http stuff , any ideas how I can stop it acting in this manner, I simply want a connection no other stuff to the xbox.

    Sounds like XP bridging the connections.

    Start > control panel > network connections > You can either delete the bridge from here or right click on a connection and there should be something like "unbridge" or "remove from bridge". Hope this helps.

    Both connections simply have the "bridge connections" option, nowt else. Is there some kind of way of telling windows your preferred connection to the net?

    Set the default gateway on the wireless NIC to be the router, and make sure there is no default gateway on the wired NIC?

    That worked a treat mate, great stuff. Another problem solved! I just removed the xbox as default gateway from the wired connection, sorted it out.
