Could I do a computer to computer wireless connection from my C2D iMac to an Apple TV?

Please don't give me an answer like 'probably' or 'I guess so'. I don't wanna buy one of these things only to find I need a wireless router.

I would want to password the connection too.

Is this possible? Or do I need a wireless router?

i know you didnt wanna hear a "i guess so"
however if your imac has an airport wireless card
yeah i guess you could i dont see any reason why you couldnt. just create a computer to computer network with a password like you would normally do and then tell the apple tv to join that network.

it should work i dont see any reason why it wouldnt as the imac would act as the wireless router.
