    I know it sounds stupid trust me, but Im looking for a way to Bridge the iMac's built in Ethernet card to the built in wireless adapter.

    I have a specific application that will not run over WIFI even though the speed is fine. It's a Support issue they wont provide currently. I looked into purchasing a Hardware Connector but at $99 for one I though they had to be a better way.

    Than reading around I heard it was possible on PC at least to Bridge an ethernet adapter to a wireless adapter kinda like VMWARE does.

    I want the app to look at my ethernet port and say OK its live..

    Anyone know HOW to do this??

    Thanks in Advance

    I was only able to do this half-ass using internet connection sharing which isnt what I wanted!

    Did you ever find a way to do this? Even with, say, Lion Server?

    I've been Googling for a while now. But it seems even OS X server (which I don't have) doesn't have bridging functionality. Damn shame, considering even old Windows XP does bridging, right out of the box. :confused:
