    hi, iv got an LED unibody MBP and for a month or 2 iv been internet sharing my connection from my HSDAP broadband dongle to my Xbox 360 through an ethernet cable. It took me AGES to get going!
    A while ago i upgraded to Snow Leopard and it broke it. I have no idea why, and i spent hours yesterday trying to get it to work again to no avail!

    that is the guide im using and for the most part its fine. Long story short, the DNS keeps failing.
    "Move onto DNS. Enter the IP address of your wireless router (in my case, "192.168.0.1") in both the primary and secondary IP address fields"
    ^^ thats the part im having problems with, as i dont use a wireless router, i dont know what to put in.
    can anybody help? anything at all would be greatly appreciated :)

    OpenDNS

    To determine the IP address of your DNS server you can check in the Network section of the System Preferences tool. Optionally, you can use one or more of the free servers from OpenDNS:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
