    I think this is the appropriate forum. My question is that we have a g3 imac that does not have a wireless card. We also have a xbox360 with the wireless adapter. My question is then can I take the signal from the xbox and get internet on the imac? I have read about the reverse way (imac internet to xbox) but was wondering if you could do it in reverse

    thanks

    I very much doubt it I'm afraid - as far as I'm aware, the 360 has no form of internet sharing. You could try and find out what wireless chipset the adaptor uses, and providing you find the device drivers, plug it into your mac and get the mac to share internet using its ethernet port.

    No, the Xbox 360 wireless adapter is not capable of sharing internet with anything but the xbox it's attached to.
