Does anyone know how to bridge a connection on Windows 7? its for how to use your lap top with directv so i can use on demand.. they sell a wirless for the directv.. but its 80 bucks.. why spend that when my mini can do the same?
Here's how to bridge network connections in Windows 7
What is a Network Bridge?
It is a way of just letting one device pass through another's network connection. No routing or NAT is needed.
Let us know how it went!
ok!! got it to work!!
for some reason I could not do this on the MINI>>
had to grab Seans laptop, no idea why..but mini has starter 7 .. not window 7
I've heard that the Windows 7 basic starter had lots of goodies left off. If you know anyone or you have a college email you might want to see if you can get a Windows 7 home and upgrade to that: Windows 7 for $29.99 for college and university students
Glad that helped you
