    Basically i have a g4 mac mini running 10.5 and i am trying to share from wireless to ethernet. i have that all set up in the internet sharing setup. i've tried many different tutorials online and i just keep running into an error saying it cant resolve the dns servers or whatever.

    My router ip is 192.168.2.1
    my macs ip is 192.168.2.10
    i have the DNS numbers from my iSp

    on the xbox i enter the ip of the xbox as 192.168.2.22
    subnet: 255.255.255.0
    gateway: 192.168.2.1 (router)

    then my DNS numbers manually set, i've also tried using my macs and routers ip's as DNS and no dice. i just keep getting the same DNS error. i have a bunch of ports for xbox live opened to my xbox ip.

    is there something i'm missing? in a lot of the tutorials there are people saying it works and it wont for me even though i'm following instructions exactly. it worked for me at one point when i was using tiger but now it wont on leopard.

    I'm pretty sure the xbox should have the gateway set to the ip the mac is issuing as a gateway not your router.
