My router broke yesterday, but I still want to play halo so I want to setup a network bridge. I have all the stuff and it is set up properly, but I can't connect to XBL. When the bridge is turned off, it says that the connection coming from the xbox has little or no connectivity, and that might have something to do with it. When I got to trouble shooter, it says that the DNS was not resolved. If anyone knows a thing or two about bridging a network or knows what the problem is, please help.

I would advise using Internet Connection Sharing instead. It works in the same way.

Select the connection to the modem, and turn on ICS. You will also need to forward all services that look relevant, such as DCHP, HTTP, DNS etc. The host for these services should be the modem, not the PC address as is entered by default.

The limited connectivity is because a thing at one end of the cable has no IP address, in this case the xbox. Once ICS is set up, it will get an IP as normal.
