My Gateway PC is getting Internet from my WIFI which works fine. I'm using Windows 8.1 32bit. I'm trying to setup my VPN to connect on Xbox. The problem is even with out the VPN connected I still have this problem, as you can see my WIFI is working fine. Once I plug in the Ethernet cable from my computer to my Xbox I get unidentified network no internet access. I need this network to get internet access so I can go online/Xbox. I had windows 8.1 64bit and everything went well, once I switched to 32bit I have these problems please help me. Capture.PNG

You are connecting the Xbox to your computer directly with an Ethernet cable? You aren't connecting the Xbox to a router and your computer separately to the router?

Yes I'm connecting the Xbox to my computer directly with an Ethernet cable. When I ran the troubleshoot I got this error. Capture.PNG How my setup is PC gets Wifi internet from my router. I then run a Ethernet cable from my PC to my Xbox. I never had this problem with 64bit. Even when I download openvpn & connect to a server it says no Internet access like its something blocking my computer Internet from giving access to the VPN or Xbox.

You first need to make sure it is a Cross-Over cable. Personally I would just connect the Xbox to the router, not try and reinvent the wheel.
