I'm running Windows XP 32-bit.

 

I am attempting to bridge my wireless network connection with my LAN connection. I have my laptop receiving internet from a wireless router. I then have an ethernet cord connecting my laptop to my Playstation 2. I need to bridge the connection in order to get internet from my laptop to my Playstation 2, but I can't get it to work.

 

I start out by going to my network connections. I am currently connected to the internet and they look like this:

So, I highlight both LAN and Wireless, right click, and hit bridge connections. I then lose my wireless internet and the bridge is unsuccessful. It looks like this:

As soon as I delete the bridge, my internet returns instantly. I don't understand what the problem is. I have been looking for info for the passed few hours and I'ms tarting to get aggrevated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The most important part  is to right click Local Area Connection and Add To Bridge in the network connections. Also make sure the sharing tab under the wireless adapter and local area connection is unchecked.
