    Using my Mac as a wireless adapter
    Hi.
    I got a mac for christmas, and rather then spending any money at all to connect my xbox 360 to the internet, I figured I would set it up through the mac as a wireless adapater via the included ethernet cord.. It almost works, but under preferences, it says that the ethernet has a self determined ip adress. The actual airporty stuff works fun, its just that the etherent has a self determined Ip adress.

    Thanks,
    Jonny

    We have countless threads on this subject, so I'll save you some time and aggravation: It's just not worth the hassle - even when it does work, it's not stable and your Mac must remain turned on for the connection to persist.

    Pick up a cheap wireless router (or if you already have one, pick up a wireless adapter for the xbox) and call it a day. Some things are just not worth the headache.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
