Can a MBP broadcast an SSID (act as a router)?

    I am living in a hotel for 6 months. It sucks.

    I am trying to get my PS3 connected to the internet. The hotel has wireless, so I can do that. However, due to the Hotel's firewalls, I am unable to get my PS3 and MBP talking as usual. I typically stream music to it while I play games or something of that nature.

    Is there a way to make my MBP act as a bridge and get the PS3 and MBP talking again?

    Ideally, I'd like the PS3 to be able to share the internet connection with the MBP, but if it cannot, I would settle for just being able for the PS3 to connect to my MBP's media server.

    So, can I do this?

    Simply use Internet Sharing (System Preferences->Sharing->Internet) and do it that way, however, you may need the MBP to be connected via a wire to the Hotel's network if you want to do any online gaming, but everything should work just fine.

    Jury duty? Witness Protection?

    Both. I saw a guy killed and I'm on the jury for it. Crazy, huh?

    Nah, my company just has me going through a training session.
