    Hi,

    I have a Mac Mini which is connecting to my network in the house via WiFi. It is a fine setup, as the Mac Mini is working as Media Centre and is located where there is no option of running an Ethernet cable.

    As the connection is decent (n), I was wondering if I can set it all up so I use the Ethernet connection on the Mac Mini as a hub? I mean, can I somehow connect my amp to the Mac Mini Ethernet and get it set up so it will see the network as well (bridging via the Mac Mini)?

    Thanks in advance,

    Bo

    Yes. You want to go to your Sharing settings and set it to Share Airport via Ethernet.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, but I can't find that item in the list of sharing...

    I see the Internet Sharing, and it looks like I can set it there to share the Internet via WiFi, with computers using the Ethernet connection, but that is not exactly what I'd like to do. I would like for computers using the Ethernet connection, to be on the local network etc.

    Bo
