    Hi ash I know you proably have but is dhcp ticked on your box network setup and is dhcp enabled on your router. I no it sounds silly but I have done that by mistake myself in the past. Is this the same vonets unit that blew your laptop usb ports.

    hi

    dhcp is enabled on both dreambx and router!!

    still puzzled, might bin it.

    yes it is the one that frazzled my usb port.

    funnily the usb port is semi working now.

    anyway back to vonets...what shall i do?

    can i hook my dreambox upto my laptop to activate the network in the house for the box that way? or do i need this vonets thing which is doing a shite job!!

    cheers

    What you need to is go to network connections drag and highlight both wireless and wired connection, when highlighted right click on them and select bridge connections. It will go thru the process, when finished it will show a new connection called bridged connection. Give your box a static ip address within your network range. Then plug in your network cable to your box and your laptop. If you have any problems ge back to us

    when i highlight them both it says i cannot bridge because they both need to be NOT USED by internet connection sharing if this means anything

    you must have internet sharing enabled on one of your conections, right click on each connection and go to properties and see if internet sharing is ticked, if it is untick it. Also check that both are set to optain ipaddress automatically in tcp/ip setings.
