    Would it be possible, via ethernet cable, to connect my Xbox 360 to an Apple TV? By doing so, it would avoid the need for a wireless adapter for the Xbox and allow it to gain internet access. Anyone with expirience in this please reply.

    I haven't tried the Apple TV, but I have shared my MBP's wifi connection via ethernet with my 360, and it works great. It would be cool to see if this works with the ATV.

    not possible. If you plug the 360 into the ethernet jack it shuts off wifi and the apple tv will think the 360 is a router and try to access the internet through that. If possible just move your router to near the tv and hardwire the apple tv and 360 to it. Thats what ive done....blu-ray player, 360, apple tv and my NAS are all hardwired to the router. Wii and macbooks are using the wifi.

    As stated that won't work - what I did instead of buying the overpriced xbox wireless adapter was buy a Netgear WGPS606 - its a wireless print server that also has a 4 port switch on it. You can get them for less than $40 shipped on the 'bay.
