    hello

    i am currently sharing a connection between my main pc and my macbook running leopard via a eithernet cable
    both have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and different IPs

    i usually just stream itunes to my pc since i do not want music actually on my pc
    so its easier if i just stream it from my mac

    i do send files to a shared folder on my pc to time to time

    but i have a problem
    everytime i want to go on the internet and Enable Airport
    it always wants to use airport as its primary
    and if i set the order to eithernet 1st, it doesn't get any internet signal and i can't search the web. Firefox just says "Looking up" for around a minute before it just gives up

    ---WRAP UP---
    i would love to be able to send files to my pc via the eithernet cable and surf the web on Airport

    anyway to do this?
    thanks alot
