    I have an ibook with Leopard installed and its connected to the internet through airport. What I'm trying to do is share the internet connection to my xbox via an internet cable but i cant find any settings in system preferences to do that, can someone please tell me how.

    Go into system preferences and click sharing and enable internet sharing, and make sure the ethernet option is checked.

    [$0.02] I've tried all the different types of internet sharing, and none have worked for me. Maybe we're doing something wrong. [/$0.02]
