    Hi guys,

    I've seen several threads here (including other forums) regarding how to connect mac (macbook pro) to my xbox via a router but it needs an ethernet cable between mac and xbox.

    I have followed instructions below:

    But what I have right now is my XBOX IS CONNECTED TO THE ROUTER THROUGH AN ETHERNET CABLE (at my living room) while my MAC is away from both (but still can connect through wireless connection) ...

    Is someone familiar with this scenario? Please help!!!:eek:

    What exactly is your question? From what you describe they are both on the same physical network so shouldn't be a problem...

    Your link is not working btw.

    Cheers.

    Install Vuze on your MBP.

    www.vuze.com

    You can drag and drop your movies into vuze and it will play the movies on your Xbox over your wireless network. It may have to encode your movies if they aren't in .mp4 format.
