Thread: Ethernet uses?
10-06-2006, 09:29 AM #1Tony3tsGuestEthernet uses?
Just acquired a PB G4 12". The side sockets are stuffed with external things, all except the Ethernet. I have a wifi connection to a network so is there anything else useful for this socket to do? (eg, could I use it to run one of those TV thingies from Elgato?) Thanks - TONY

Anyway, to answer the original question, ethernet only has one use other than connecting to the Internet, and that is directly connecting to another computer for a two-computer network. Given that you're on wireless, though, you probably have the network sharing thing covered.
