I have just last night got ubuntu because i was locked out of my windows vista so i updated OS's
but, i can't bridge the networks from my wlan0 to eth0 (eth0 being an xbox 360). i have tried Firestarter and that just says "eth0 is not ready" and i used the terminal for "brctl, sudo, ifconfig" and i still can't get it working... could anyone please give me a guide or anything how to do it?

If you're using network manager, edit the eth0 connection. Go to the IPV4 settings and there should be a drop-down box. One of the options should be "shared to other computers".

Then, find the IP of eth0 and set the IP on the 360 to one node higher. i.e. if the IP of eth0 is 192.168.0.1, set it to 192.168.0.2 or whatever you may need.

I'm not sure about how to set an IP on a 360 but I'm pretty sure it can be done.

Hope this helps.
