    so, I just recently picked up a laptop that does not have wireless, and I dont feel like running a cat5 cable just for it, especialy since my Mac Pro is using the wireless. Is there a way that my Mac Pro can act like a hub and the laptop can plug into it with cat5? Any help is apreciated.

    System prefs -> Sharing -> internet

    Then set where you want to share internet from and to.

    That easy huh? And I will be able to surf the net on my laptop through Cat5, through the Mac Pro's wireless connection?

    Thanks for the help. I apreciate it.
