    Hey guys,
    Not sure if this is the right place but I have my Humax HDR T2(a pvr) connected to my macbook via ethernet as my laptop is next to my tv and thats not on the same floor as the router. Before I got the wireless adapter for my xbox I was doing the same setup and using my macbook as a bridge which worked well but the T2 is saying network disconnected. It is showing up all the settings from the network apart from gateway address. On my mac its saying the "ethernet has a self assigned IP so an internet connection will not be possible".

    Will it be possible to fix this problem?

    Thanks for your help in advance guys.

    How did you set up the ethernet connection? The easiest way to achieve this set up would be to use internet sharing (under sharing in system preferences). Tell the macbook to share the internet connection from the wifi to the ethernet. You may need to remove any settings you have manually entered on the ethernet connection first.
