    I searched for quite a while, thinking this must have been answered in depth somewhere on these forums, but I couldn't find a single solid answer.

    My mpb is connected to the internet wirelessly. My ps2 is sitting right beside it, and I want to get my ps2 online. I connected the two with a patch cable (tried both crossover and normal) and turned on sharing on my mbp (share from airport, to built-in ehernet). Weird thing though, there are also two other options in that list ethernet adapter en2 and en3?

    Anyway, ps2 can't connect. Suggestions?

    I also tried this mith my 360 and Macbook, no go. I dunno what I need to do, maybe I missed an option or something, but it didn't work.

    No other suggestions? Every thread I dug up ended like this, with one or more people chiming in to say they couldn't get it to work either, then maybe one person would cryptically chime in saying to search the forums and the answer had been posted many times.

    Anyone have a straight answer?

    well if I had 2 macs laying around, maybe that is what you need, because I think what is happening is that is in sending out some sort of crazy signal that only a computer (not a console) can read.
