    I just recently moved out of my house and I am currently "stealing" wireless internet right now while waiting for my quest equipment. I own a Xbox 360 and want to get online to play some games, I plugged the ethernet cable from the 360 into the iMac. Is there any way to make this work, use the mac to get online with the 360???:confused:

    certainly! if your using Leopard head into Internet Sharing in System Preferences and choose share your internet connection from "Airport" to computers using "Ethernet". then check the Internet Sharing box and click start to turn in on.

    im not sure about Tiger. i assume it very similar though.

    i love this feature its awesome. can this be done in windows? yet another surprise for switchers that windows suers had no idea could be done on a mac.
