    I have a setup under my tv with a PS3 and Mac Mini, the Mini is always on. Since it has n-wireless and the PS3 only has g I was wondering if it would be possible to connect the PS3 to the Mac Mini, give the PS3 a dhcp address and just use the mini as a bridge. I know this is easily done in Windows, but what about OS X?

    Nice and simple solution. Unfortunately it just introduces alot of new problem :( The PS3 wont get a IP adress.

    I then used this trick to get that part working:

    But still it is very unreliable and automatic portforwarding seems not to be supported :( I rely on this alot since different games uses different ports for online play. I guess I just give up unless someone have the complete working solution with a guide included to how I do it :)
