Please bear with me, this is almost beyond me.

I have a ceiling light in a bathroom that has been down foe awhile. I went to install a new fixture and can't get it to work.

In the box, there are three incoming wires(each with white, black and ground). two from somewhere. The third wire is coming from the switch on the wall. I tied all black together, whites and ground, the light worked, but the switch was off and when I flipped the switch to ON, the breaker tripped.

I've tried other wiring configurations and nothing. It's probally simple, so I'm asking for help.

Any Ideas?
