    Since the Router isn't wireless, it can't recieve the signals from your bridge. I can't find any of the product numbers you're listing on Linksys' site, only basic families (B indicates a wired router). So what you need now is Cat-5 Ethernet cable. You should already have some going from your computer to your modem, you'll need 1 for Computer, 1 for XBox, and 1 for your modem from the router

    Joe, here's a step-by-step guide from the Linksys web site that explains how to do it. (Important note - these instructions assume you already have the wireless router set up and configured.)

    Many people have this same set up and it works well. Pay close attention to step 11 - if the SSID is not the same for both devices, it will not work.

    Joe-

    The router you're buying is the BEFW11S4, not 54. I have the same one, but I don't use it for online gaming (yet).

    Joe,
    From my post in the other thread-
    If it's possible to move your modem to your xbox a cheaper alternative is to get a wireless PCI Card for your PC instead of the bridge. Then send your connection from the router and your xbox to the pci card and your pc.
    Easy as pie to setup
