I am running my nano 2 through my laptop as i am using my neighbors internet, the issue is that my nano doesn't seem to be able to get the IP and it also says that i am "off service". I have tried turning off my firewalls, 2 different Lan cables. Also did a factory recovery. and still nothing . Any help would be greatly appreciated.
OS-Win Vista home premium
McAfee Total protection
Bridged Connection doesn't show any conflicts.
Roger..... go to youtube.... type in "use laptop as wireless router" ..... then, when you have completed that process, start the full setup for your cnx.....
Nano 2 is down.
I think the nano is down atm but when its up here are some instructions of bridging your internet connection with a laptop using windows vista
- Connect the Ethernet cable to your laptop and your stb
- Make sure you have DHPC settings or Auto IP settings selected
- Go into network
- Select network and sharing center from the top tab
- Here you should see your local area connection which is the stb and your wireless connection which is to the router.
- Highlight both of those connections and right click
- Select bridge connections
**Please note that this doesn’t work on the windows starter versions (the ones that come already loaded on to the computer) You will need a purchased version of a minimum windows home basic

A man only becomes wise when he begins to calculate the approximate depth of his ignorance.
how do you get the internet in your house ... only with the laptop or are u using something else first then going to the laptop?
it is called ICS .. "internet connection sharing" ...
Since this is a NETWORKING issue ...
