    Is it possible to give my Windows box internet access from my Macbook? I mean: I get internet from a wireless router, but in this moment i dont have a wireless receiver for my Windows box, and I dont have a big enough ethernet cable from where the router is. I want to put my Macbook side by side with my Windows so, is it possible to give internet to my Windows box, via ethernet from my Macbook?

    Yes, this is possible. Look under "Sharing" in System Preferences. This will allow you to do "Internet Sharing" to share the wireless connection via ethernet. It's a few clicks and you're all set.

    Sure, just go to Internet Sharing, and share your internet connection from airport to ethernet.
