    Okay so I know that there are a bunch of posts about this already, but I've tried pretty much everything and the farthest I can get my connection to go is failing on DNS. My set-up is like this: I have an iMac in an otherwise PC wireless network and my 360 is connected to my iMac with the cable that comes with the Xbox 360 Pro. My mac is connected to the internet via airport. I've gotten my 360 connection test past IP with no problems, but everytime I get to DNS is thinks about it for a min then fails it.

    Airport Preferences are as follows:
    IPv4: Using DHCP
    IP: 192.168.0.70
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Router: 192.168.0.1
    IPv6: Automatically

    Built-In Ethernet Preferences are as follows:
    IPv4: Manually
    IP: 192.168.2.1
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Router: 192.168.2.1
    IPv6: Automatically

    Xbox 360 Settings as follows:
    IP: 192.168.2.2
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.2.1
    DNS Primary: 192.168.0.1
    DNS Secondary: 192.168.0.1

    and if I type in ifconfig en0 into my terminal I get this:

    en0: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
    inet6 fe80::216:cbff:fe89:8bc6%en0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
    inet 192.168.2.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.2.255
    ether 00:16:cb:89:8b:c6
    media: autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex,flow-control>) status: active
    supported media: autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex,hw-loopback> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex,flow-control> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex,hw-loopback> 100baseTX <full-duplex,flow-control> 1000baseT <full-duplex> 1000baseT <full-duplex,hw-loopback> 1000baseT <full-duplex,flow-control> none

    Any help would be appreciated so I could get back to kicking ass on CoD4 :p Thanks.
