    internet sharing with 360


    I have looked everywhere and posted on numerous other linux sites, but noone has been able to give me a guide to sharing my usb wifi internet with my 360. so I hope you can help.
    this is how i had it configured.

    firestarter installed.
    firestarter internet sharing enabled.
    network manager, wifi: ip 192.168.2.4 |eth, ip 192.168.0.1 gateway 192.168.2.4|xbox 360 ip 192.168.0.2, gateway 192.168.0.1|

    ive have gotten through the ip checks, but still have not gotten past the DNS check.

    It's not clear what your configuration is.

    Microsoft makes a wireless network adapter that connects to the XBOX via USB--is that what you have? And that adapter's IP is 192.168.0.2? And XBOX routes all traffic to gateway 192.168.0.1, which is the wireless adapter on your Linux PC?

    But where does "wifi: ip 192.168.2.4" come in? And how is your Linux PC connected to the internet--cable modem? dialup? DSL? It would be helpful if you executed this command and posted the results:
    $ netstat -nr

    I can't help you specifically with firestarter, but it looks like it just adds a convenient interface to the capability that is native to Linux.

    this is how i have it set up....

    cable modem--->wifi-->usb wifi adapter--->computer--->ethernet card--->xbox 360

    i dont have the wireless adapter for the 360, thats why i want to share my pc's connection with my 360.

    my wifi: ip 192.168.2.4, is the ip that connects to my wirelss router. my psp is 192.168.2.3, my main wired computer is 192.168.2.2 and my router is 192.168.2.1


    i set it so the ethernet card, uses my wifi as a gateway.
