    Can you further define what it is you want to do?

    Do you want to bridge two connections that you have to one network into one to increase bandwidth? Or do you wish to bridge two different connections on two different subnets so that your machine is acting as the router in the middle?

    I would like it that the internet comes from wireless device and then an Ethernet cable connects to my router (I had this working before but some how the bridge has disappeared and every time a try to bridge it does not appear)

    How did you bridge the connection before?

    My apologies, I am slightly confused with the setup. So you have an internet access on the wireless adapter on your machine and you wish to bridge it to the ethernet section that is connected to the router so that you can share that internet to others?

    well I had the bridge but I deleted it and later I click bridge connection it would go threw the normal step (please wait while Windows bridges the connections) and then when that is done the window disappears and the connections are not bridged
