    Ok talking to myself here but what the hey. I installed & configured my new Realtek (Belkin) RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC card.
    I then enabled Internet Connection Sharing after hooking ethernet cable from nic card to xbox & restarting i still have nothing connected to my network. Got any ideas? Would be really helpful :smashin:

    Thanks for the reply m8 :) I have it setup pretty much as it looks in the picture so i'm not sure whats going wrong http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/start/connect/sharedpc/
    I think ultimatly where I'm going wrong could be i'm using a straight through Ethernet cable instead of cross-over, do you think this is the case?
