    Hi, i have a pc that is connected via wifi to a router in another room giving it internet access. Now i would like my mac mini to connect to the internet through my pc, so it shares the connection. Plugging the mac mini into the router or buying an airport card is not an option at the moment , so is this possible? i know it is with 2 windows machines, thanks

    You can definatly share from Mac to PC. That's what I'm doing at the minute. I'm not sure how to go about sharing from PC to mac ... sorry :(

    Someone here is bound to know how.

    If the PC is using wireless and the Mac isn't, why not just move the router/modem closer to the Mac so that it can be plugged into it.

    I know you said that's not an option, but it's an idea. :cool:
