Share 802.1X wireless connection share to Xbox 360

Ok, what needs doing is to connect a wired xbox 360 to a 802.1X auth wireless network using a connection share across a 2012 13" MBP.

I'm stumped at the dialogue box pictured.

Any help/insight would be appreciated.

on my PC (win7) this:

I had to use cmd + ipconfig /all to get the DNS server(yes we only seem to have 1) - and then enter it manually on the xbox to get it to work.

We have spent a great deal of time going over this now, still with no joy.

We have got the xbox to recognise that it is connected to the computer but it fails to get on the internet.

These links deal with similar issues or problems to out own.

One option is to share the connection over windows on a bootcamp partition but that wouldn't be ideal and I see it as a last resort.

If it's possible on PC then one would hope it's possible on mac too.

This is by Apple's design as, in most organisations where the network edge has been secured this way, it is against their acceptable use policy to share your connection for security and auditing reasons.

this is understood.

However this is a residential connection and we're were told by admin if we could get it to work they wouldn't stop us. But they won't help.

note: it works on PC

Indeed it does work in Windows, but that doesn't make the behaviour desirable even though it's perfectly technically possible. I appreciate this doesn't help you, but OS X isn't going to make your life easy here as its behaviour is intended. I was merely trying to explain why.

ok, so you think windows would just be the easier route?

Respectfully, you're missing my point. OS X is designed explicitly to stop you doing this, so I don't think you're going to find an easy way to do it.
