I would like to bridge my wireless and ethernet so that I can use my laptop as a wireless adapter to use xbox live. In vista I just highlight the two connections and select bridge connections. I've read some posts about how to do this through terminal but that seems quite overwhelming, anything simpler?

I believed I answered this question earlier. There is no GUI available to my knowledge.

i guess you need ICS for this.. so you could try firestarter.. or otherwise just do it the command line way..

tried firestarter but when I enable internet connection sharing I get an error that says my ethernet device is not ready, so I tried connecting my computer to another laptop via ethernet, but got the same error
