I know other people have done it, but no one specifically tells you what to do and what equipment. So for the record, I networked my PC to my 802.11b Linksys wireless router (via cat5 cable, of course) and then used the Linksys wireless bridge (802.11b also) and attached the XBOX to the bridge. I used the directions provided with the bridge for configuration of the bridge. Then, I connected the XBOX to my router via cable using your directions to make sure everything was set up properly before trying it on the wireless network. I have an internet connection using DHCP, but assigned a static IP for the XBOX per X-S Freaks directions. Once I got it working via cables, you must unplug the xbox and restart the PC. Then plug in the bridge and make sure you see two green lights. When you plug in the xbox and turn it on, you should then see three green lights. If not, check your bridge configuration or possibly you have bad reception. I was really surprised at how moving my bridge two feet made all the difference. Originally, I got it working and thought it was great, but it was sometimes working and sometimes not. I couldn't figure it out. It was simply bad reception. Now I get fast transfers and works 100% of the time. I think big TV's can screw with the reception, so try moving a few more feet away from the TV.

I put this..
route –p add 192.168.0.3 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.2 METRIC 1 IF 3
cause I want to use "0x3 ...00 40 05 04 01 e2 ...... Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC - P" So I changed IF to 3.

but chances are you probably don't need to add a static route, you could just change the subnet. I should update that section to be a little more clear.
paste the output of an ipconfig /all in here and we'll see what you have going on... I assume you have one nic out to the internet and one with a crossover to your xbox?
Also you could make your own thread so more people would read it and respond.

Ok now to my questions and rants
Question: I followed step 2 in the tutorial since I have 2 nics in my pc, one going to my xbox and the second going the router that inturn connects to my cable modem. I'm able to connect to my xbox via ftp but I also want the xbox to have access to live. So I enabled ICS to my nic card thats going to my router but in doing so this results in not being able to thru ftp to xbox and I still cant go on live
Rant: I think you also should in the turtorial a link or method to disable media sense in the pc. It's pretty annoying to have a disconnet icon when the xbox isnt on.

As far as disabling the card, you can just right click on it and select disable if you are using windows xp. Some people won't find it annoying though and don't mind seeing the disconnect icon in their taskbar. Plus I'd have to tell people how to disable it in windows xp, 2000, ME, 98, etc. and then I'd have to tell them how to enable it again if they wanted to use that nic...
