    Hey all! I looked through so many threads to find an answer but alas I could not find anything, so I am turning to all the Mac experts here for some help.

    Currently I use my Mac Mini as a wireless hub via an Ad Hoc network. I connect to this network with my iPhone, iPad, and my wifes Windows laptop. I am attempting to connect to this network with my Xbox 360 which has the attached wireless connection kit. The Xbox see's my mac mini network and my mac mini see's the Xbox via Connect360. But I can not connect to live or use Connect 360. What's odd is I can even browse the files that Connect360 maps on my Mac on the 360 but can not play or view them.

    Does any one have any ideas?

    I too am trying to figure this out. I don't own a router, but to date my ethernet-connected MBP has been more than capable of serving internet via ad-hoc wifi to my phone, my brother's PC, etc. Can't get the Xbox to connect though—it sees the network but doesn't get assigned an IP.
