I thought the mac mini server also serves as a wifi router?

    I just bought a snow leopard mac mini server, everything came as a bundle pretty nice. The snow leopard server software preinstalled on the mac mini too. Only thing I'm not sure about is does this also act as a wifi router? In the back of the box it says "airport extreme wireless networking included", I assumed this means that this can act as a wifi router like an aiport extreme? Is this true? If so, how do I do it?

    I believe all that means is that it has wireless N capability (i.e., the card/chip).

    In fact the iMac says the same thing, and it's not a wifi router either.

    Thanks so much but it has no mention of the wireless setup anywhere does it only act as a router over LAN?

    It might help if you actually read them.

    Yes. That said, if you had read the link in Post #2 of this thread by flopticalcube, then you would be even better off.

    There's no Internet Sharing in snow leopard server so http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8156.html doesn't apply. Good try on being a smart ass though, maybe next time?
