    I usually have no problems hooking my Xbox up to XBL wirelessly to the interent, but I recently moved and now it wont connect to XBL.

    It shows the SSID but when put the passphrase in it begins to connect and then it says there is a problem. it says it is "connected" but there is no IP. All the setting as are put to Automatic.

    I have tried shutting the router off and my Xbox and I even tried connecting an ethernet cable to my MBP and Xbox. I got an IP when I did this but it still didnt connect.

    so that's one problem. Another problem is that I dont know how to share my MBP with my Xbox...Like I said, I have the wireless adapter thing but maybe I have been going about all of this wrong.

    any advice?

    Make sure your Mac OS X firewall is turned off.
