    I am trying to set up Apple TV. I am on a mac pro. I have connected the Apple TV to my TV, and I need to connect it to my computer via a Wireless network - that's the problem. Airport is turned on, but not connected to a network. I have tried selecting "create a network" from the Airport menu. I give the network a name, and then go to network preferences. The network shows up, but a dialogue says it probably cannot connect to the internet. This is probably where I am going astray. Apple TV will not connect to the network, and the network disappears if I restart. I am connected to the internet via a cable modem. Advice and Info will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply, Kila - it did the trick, and after a few more missteps, I have Apple TV working at last.
