Network bridge issues with Windows 7

Hi. This is a problem that I am currently facing. It is that I am not able to create a network bridge setup with the ethernet that is network cable to connect my Playstation 3 with the system. I use a wireless card with it though it is not able to get connected. The operating system that I use with the desktop machine is Windows 7. I just think that it is due to the the operating system. Please help me out. Thank you.

Re: Network bridge issues with Windows 7

The issue that you are not able to create or establish a network bridge with the desktop to connect your Playstation 3 is due to incorrect way of connecting the peripherals. You need to connect the Playstation 3 directly to the router via cables and then establish the network connection by installing the hardware through a network. There should not be a problem with the operating system in order to make or create a network bridge.

Re: Network bridge issues with Windows 7

As you are not able to create a network bridge setup with the playstation 3 to your system it might be the operating system a possible reason for the occurrence. For your information Windows 7 is still been under testing process and it would be advisable to use Windows XP to create or to carry out such sort of functions. Check out by using Windows XP and then create a network bridge. Hope this should work for you.

The drivers for the wireless card and the network card may be the issue associated with the same. You need to check out whether it is been the root cause through which you are not able to connect the peripherals well to the system. As Windows 7 been highly sophisticated and advanced operating system software it requires updated tools in order to cope well with it. Upgrade the tools with latest softwares and drivers. This might help.
