Hello, First off i don't understand computer lingo that well. i learn by muddling through and searching the web for answers. But after six hours of searching yesterday i am close to giving up. Apple support is going to charge me, my internet provider might help and they might charge me, past experiences with retail computer stores proved useless, and the apple installation booklet was helpful but only to a point. The problem: Mac mini, ATV2, and DSL hook-up. i don't have wifi, wireless, or routers and i refuse to have cable TV. i have the ethernet cable ready but the Mini only has one ethernet plug. So how do i hook this up? The Mini was a gift from our children 2 years ago and the ATV2 was this '11 Christmas gift from our son. Great kids, right! i read about splitters, some articles say i can do this others say i can't. If you use splitters they have to be used in pairs. That would be a pair at the computer and a pair, where? At the phone jack or on the ATV2? Some articles say a Mini is the same as and better than an ATV2!??? To say i am lost is an understatement! Any help will be appreciated and will keep this mom from tossing it all out the window!
