I hope you answer me. One day I needed to connect my Xbox to the Internet and I don't have a WiFi adapter so I bridged the WiFi and the Ethernet together and you know you should disable the WiFi sharing. After I finished, from the Xbox 3 or 4 days later I needed to hotspot my WiFi. To do this I had to enable the WiFi sharing and delete the bridge. After I deleted the bridge, there was no Internet access. I tried to delete my WiFi adapter and reinstall it, but nothing happened and I tried to fix via servers.msi, but the result was the same. What should I do? I have a Windows 8 Toshiba Satellite C660.

There has been a confusion between your network cards and bridged devices. Firstly, disable all the bridges. You can do this by right clicking each device from the bridge and then select Remove from bridge. Secondly, disable and enable the network devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > devmgmt.msc).

After the devices have been re-enabled, use DHCP to automatically connect to Internet, or simply configure the IPv4 settings.
