  1. Bridging Setup for Internet


    I have a machine that needs to be able to see all other Local computers and also use the internet. My other local computers are on a LAN that can access the internet but they are on a slower broadband then my other router.


    I would like my machine to be on the LAN but use the internet from the other Ethernet, would bridging do this?


    Thanks

    :)

    Network bridge suddenly stopped working in windows 10

    Hi Shantanu,

    To isolate your concern, we would like to know how your network bridge is connected? Is it a wireless connection or a wired connection?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you set up your network bridge to refresh the adapter and reconnect the other devices. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Add Incoming Connections from the Internet.
    • Bridge the two network connections that you want to use.
    • Forget the internal network connection (under
      Manage Known Networks).
    • Reconnect to your bridge network.
    • Restart your computer and check if your concern persists.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Issues with sharing internet via Network Bridge

    Hi all,

    My requirement: Share WiFi internet on my laptop to my desktop via Ethernet cable (both Windows 10).

    Current method: Network Bridge in Win 10.

    Problem: I can get internet access on desktop via above method but after a random time period, the WiFi adapter on laptop gets disabled
    and in turn, both computers lose internet access.

    Temporary solution: I have to restart the laptop and manually reconnect to the WiFi in order to restore internet access on both computers.

    Steps I followed to setup the Network Bridge:

    – Connect laptop to WiFi

    – Connect desktop to laptop via Ethernet cable

    – Select Ethernet and WiFi adapter on laptop and create Network Bridge

    – After bridge is created, the WiFi connection drops so I just have to manually reconnect to WiFi (internet access re-gained on laptop now)

    – The desktop does not automatically get internet so I have to use "Troubleshoot problems". It detects DHCP is disabled and gives me option
    to enable it as ADMIN. After selecting yes, desktop will get internet access

    – Internet works perfectly on laptop and desktop until both devices lose internet access when laptop WiFi gets disabled automatically. This
    could happen randomly within 10 minutes or even after an hour (no specific timer)

    I've disabled the "turn off WiFi adapter when idle to save power" feature but it made no difference.

    I used this method an year ago and internet worked perfectly for online gaming. It would never dropout or very rarely.

    But over the past many months, its gotten worse and usually drops out in less than 30 minutes. Yesterday it lasted around 50 minutes

    No issues at all while the laptop is connected only to the WiFi (bridge deleted). I've left it idle for hours.

    I have gone through many threads/forums but couldn't find a solution to maintain a stable internet connection while using Network Bridge.

    Please advise if my Network Bridge is missing adequate configuration or how to correctly set it up for this purpose.

    You may suggest alternate solutions on how to share internet over Ethernet.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    Adobe Bridge: cannot set as default in Settings Menu


    Adobe Bridge is actually a Photo Organizer, it is not designed for single image viewer so if you want to set it as default to open every time you double click a .jpg/.png. Bridge will open the whole folder containing the .jpg/.png that you selected. If this is what you want then try the followings:
    1. Right click on the .jpg ->Open With->Choose another App
    2. If Bridge is on the list. Hi-lite it and put a check mark on: "Always use this app to open .jpg file". If not go to step 3
    3. If Bridge is not on the list scroll to the bottom then select then click on "More Apps"
    4. If Bridge is still not on the list then scroll to bottom again and select "Look for another App on this PC"
    5. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Bridge and select "Bridge.exe" ====>64bit
      Or: C:\Program Files (X86)\Adbode\Adobe Bridge and select "Bridge.exe" ====> 32bit
      then put a check mark on "Always use this app to open .jpg file"
    6. Do the same for .png file.
