Network bridge: Loss of internet connection

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Mark Veldhuis, Nov 8, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    In XP, I bridged 2 network connections on my PC, like this:


    Network bridge:
    (Connects to my router, which is connected to cable modem).

    IP: 192.168.1.100
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    DNS and gateway: 192.168.1.1 (=router)

    This connection is bridged to the LAN adapter on the same PC. I did this
    to give PC to an IP address in the range of the router:

    PC 2:

    LAN adapter:

    IP: 192.168.1.110
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    DNS and gateway: 192.168.1.1


    This works in XP. I can exchange files between the PCs, and both have
    Internet access.

    In Vista RC2 however, when I do the exact same thing, I lose my Internet
    on both PCs. I can do verything between the PCs, the local network is
    fine. But no Internet.
    What have I got to do in order to get Internet access back on both
    machines?


    Regards,
    Mark Veldhuis.
