    Just got an xbox 360 and have plugged an ethernet cable between it and my imac but cannot seem to get the connection working. I'm no expert!

    Anyone have any useful information or tutorials etc to help me out?

    Many thanks guys

    You have to fiddle around with Apple's "Internet Connection Sharing" to get this up and running.

    I've covered it a bit in two posts on my home page:

    If you want to play back your iTunes library on the Xbox 360, you have to buy Nullriver's "Connect 360" software.

    I have entered all the IP address and DNS details as accurately as I can possibly get them and still no connection :(

    It confirms the IP address but keeps failing at DNS.

    Ive been onto my server site and got all the details straight from there so wouldn't have thought they were wrong :confused:
