    Hey everyone, can anyone give me instructions concerning how I can connect to Xbox live with my xbox, an ethernet cable and my iMac G5? All the stuff I found online or on this forum has been a bit frustrating since networking is not one of my gifts lol. I knew enough to turn on internet sharing (from airport to the ethernet port) but my xbox is being stubborn. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance :eek:

    Buy a router, they are cheap and provide better network security anyway.

    MacRumorUser, I followed your instructions in post 17, and the xbox still refuses to connect. I imputed all the numbers, got the ethernet connection working fine....However when I enter the information into my Xbox, I still get DNS errors. In your instructions you put in the number "10.0.1.1" and you said to use that "or whatever ip address your wireless router/access point has" I tried 10.0.1.1, and it didn't work. So where do I find my wireless router/access point number? Thanks for the help so far, this Xbox is driving me crazy.

    *still screaming at the Xbox lol. Why did M$ make this so hard? You'd think they would've designed an easier interface for connecting to Xbox live. Do they expect the average user to be fluent in networking code? :mad:
