    Macbook Pro not connecting to Xbox/PS3 - ethernet
    Hi all,


    My Macbook Pro with Lion isn't connecting to my PS3 or Xbox via ethernet. I want to be able to stream files and share my WiFi connection. I've enabled the appropriate sharing settings.

    When hooked to my PS3, when I do a 'test' connection thing the ethernet connection on my Mac displays the ethernet as 'disconnected' and then the PS3 can't assign an IP. On the Xbox, it doesn't seem to disconnect the ethernet, but it always fails during a test.

    I know it isn't my consoles as my friend connected his PC to them okay.

    I know it should be just plug and play, which is why I'm a bit confused. My Mac is connected to a weird WiFi connection (the university's - 'enterprise', or something) but I don't see why that would make a difference in just making a simple connection.

    Any advice, suggestions, anything?

    Done all that- no luck. At the moment, I'm just trying to get the two machines Mac - Ps3/Xbox and they just don't connect. The Mac and PS3 ping using Network Utility, but it won't connect.
