    hello there

    before getting the new pro
    i used to share my wireless internet on my laptop with my xbox 360 connected with an ethernet cable

    i havent been able to do this successfully with the mac now though

    when trying to connect on my xbox
    it fails at the 'IP' stage
    and says
    your console was unable to negotiate a lease with your DHCP server. Make sure that addresses are available on your server


    ive googled it and found many people having the same problem
    but a fix or anything is never mentioned

    hoping someone can help me out?


    im not sure how much more information is needed
    but dhcp is on in my router settings
    the gateway is correct on both console and laptop etc
    anything else?

    Did you follow these steps to the letter ?

    If DHCP is not working, try assigning a static IP address. If you have more than one device on your network, ping the IP to make sure it's not in use.
