    RE: Internet Sharing and interfaces...

    Hi cmaher92,

    Caveat: I don't have an Xbox 360, so I can't answer any specific questions concerning the Xbox 360. And pardon my naiveté, but Internet Sharing is in general possible so unless the Xbox 360 has some very special or unique requirements, this should be readily possible. (I'm sure I must be missing something that is unique to the Xbox 360.)

    Assuming the Xbox 360 has WiFi, then you can attach your MBP to the Internet via Ethernet and then share its Ethernet Internet connection with the Xbox 360 via WiFi.

    If the Xbox 360 does not have WiFi, then you could connect your MBP to the Internet either by WiFi, or through the Firewire interface. You then share the MBP's Internet by ethernet cable to the Xbox 360.

    Basically, I believe you can't share the MBP's Internet connection on the same interface (WiFi, ethernet, etc.), but you can share the Internet connection by employing two interfaces.

    Good luck,
    Switon
