Xbox 360 > Windows 7 PC > Wireless Connection. Xbox can't find PC.

Can someone please help, I can find solutions all over the internet for XP, but not Windows 7.

I have connected my Xbox 360 to my PC Directly via Crossover cable. My PC is connected wirelessly to my Router.

My Xbox or PC cannot find each other. My PC connects to the internet fine, but obviously not the Xbox.

I've tried bridging the connections, but I'm guessing the first step would be to get the xbox and pc to recognize each other first.

Any tips on how to do this would be greatly appreciated... It was a breeze when I use to have XP, but it seems the only thing 7 is good for is the DX upgrades.

No, I've tried both.

I use to do the very same thing with my old Xbox, and it worked fine.

I refuse to pay $150 for a wireless adapter for the 360, it's beyond ridiculous.

Hey DinKuM Xx,

If you are looking for a cheap wireless adapter for the older Xbox 360 models, Amazon.com is actually selling them for about $55 dollars. Link for that is below.

Also, let the record show that the wireless adapters were never above $100 at any point. These always sold for just under $90 I believe. This is a pretty good deal if you would like a wireless solution.

I'm in Australia.

The wireless adapter's are at their cheapest at $110.

Cheers for the link though, I'll have a look.

So you've tried bridging, what about an ICS? Works pretty decently for my console and my Windows 7 Professional PC.
