    If you plug an Internext connection (DSL Modem) into an Apple TV via Ethernet.

    Can you then surf the web wirelessly on a Macbook Pro by using the wireless connection b/w an Apple TV and the Laptop?

    i.e. Can an Apple TV replace an Airport Express as a Wireless Router?

    Many thanks!

    Can anyone confirm this yet?

    Anyone who has an Apple TV, can you please confirm that if you plug a adsl modem into the Apple TV via an Ethernet connection.

    That via the wireless connection between Apple TV and a Mac that you can access the Internet.

    Thus removing the need for an Airport Express?
