    I have a simular issue with sharing my net connection.

    the ICS PC seems to no longer share the connection because the trial version of windows ran out. I have my long range wifi antenna hooked via USB to the eMac and a eathernet cable running to the router.

    Here's the issue:

    Router will not put out internet signal.
    I followed the guide as to using a mac to share net connection with a Xbox, BUT even though the router is setup via Static IP and shows its working it does not put out the internet connection. What do i do?

    Well since no one replied with any form of help, I scoured Google, did settings recommended on several apple forums and NOTHING. I ended up doing this:

    My mom has her computer in the same room as my eMac, Wifi antenna plugs into eMac, eMac shares the connection over eathernet, eathernet goes out eMac into my moms computer, I installed a PCI Eathernet card in her computer and set her computer up for Internet Shariing, eathernet cable goes out back of PCI eathernet card into the Internet Port on wireless router, Wireless router feeds internet to Xbox 360S and my laptop.

    In laymans terms:

    Wifi anternna -->eMac---->Windows PC--> Wireless Router
