NIC part of bridge, but Network Bridge itself is gone (Win XP Pro)

NIC part of bridge, but Network Bridge itself is gone (Win XP Pro)

Post by maryru » Mon, 16 Jan 2006 13:04:45

I'm running Windows XP Pro.
I have a 1394 connection and an Ethernet card (Linksys LNE100TX). The
Linksys is what I use to connect to the internet.
The Linksys says it is part of a Network Bridge, but the Network Bridge
itself is gone (because I deleted it thinking it would unbridge the
connections. It didn't.).

I want to get rid of the bridge so I can access the properties of my Linksys
connection again.

Steps I've already taken:
- uninstalled and reinstalled my network card numerous times using
different drivers
- Tried rebridging my two connections, but it won't let me create a new
bridge between them because it says one of them is being used by Internet
Connection Sharing.
- searched
- searched
- Googled on Network Bridge
- searched many microsoft newsgroups

The only thing I haven't tried is physically removing the card from the
machine as I am hoping for a software fix first.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.


1. How to add / remove NIC to / from Network Bridge in XP?

2. Network Bridge / Multiple NIC in virtual network?

I am running Hyper-V on server core 2008 (managing with Hyper-V manager). I
would like to create a virtual network that has more than one NIC assigned
to it. I only have the option to add one NIC in the virtual network manager
"add" function. So I thought I would just bridge a couple of the adapters
first. But I cannot find how to bridge network adapters in Windows 2008
server core.
My goal is to create a virtual network, add several servers to it, and have
them use the bandwidth of multiple adapters available for use if needed.
Is there a way to do this?
