    Just got accepted into OnLive (video game service) In order to play I can't be on WiFi. Is there any way to trick my MacBook Pro, iMac into thinking it's hardwired in? Something like 3G Unrestrictor for iPhone :D

    I'm sure there IS an answer. Too bad for us we don't have the know how. It's a computer, somebody out there can make it do damn near anything they want, including this!

    I don't know what that is,and neither am I very knowledgeable about networking, so feel free to shoot me down, but wouldn't a wireless ethernet bridge do this job? Connects Ethernet at your PC/mac, so thats what it thinks its using, and wireless from the bridge?

    There IS an answer

    there is a way to do this. To do it download Pdanet desktop for mac here: http://www.junefabrics.com/iphone/mac.php

    After you download and install pdanet it will appear as an ethernet adapter in your system preferences. Reorder your connections so that the pdanet adapter is above your wifi and you should be good to go.

    Sorry if that was at all confusing but thats the only way that i know of to do it.
