    is there a way to run my xbox internet through my mac using airport. What i mean is that i would use airport(wireless internet) on my mac and then run an ethernet cable from the port in the back of my iMac 5g to my xbox. how would i go about doing this?

    why don't you just use airport and plug the cord that was going to your iMac, right into the 360? thats what i do

    I think that its to do with where his 360 is. That would be fine if he doesnt mind a cable thru his house, or if it was next to his airport, but yes you can share your internet connection using the ethernet connection from your iMac to your 360

    I've never done it, but I would assume you would do it through the System Preferences, Sharing panel.

    mac into a router

    go to sharing in prefences, and choose internet, and choosing sharing. turn it on. I'm using that way right now. I have a ibook sharing internet lan(in) wireless(out) via airport and surfing the web on my windows laptop. just make sure u disable firewall and no wep encryption on your mac that has internet sharing on. I never could get it to work with either of those settings on

    you can do this with pc also but you have bridge the two connects but its a pain in the but to get working. mac 1 click your done.

    good luck
