    Specs:
    20" iMac Core 2 Duo 2.16Ghz, 500GB HDD, 1GB RAM, 128MB ATI Radeon X1600
    computer to computer network?
    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.

    absolutely 100% u can use the Apple TV with a computer-computer network.

    we've got one at work and i synced my library to it today via this type of network.
    and i have streamed to it before via a computer-computer network
