Hi all,

Thanks for your help in advance. I have been searching the net like crazy looking for an answer to my problem.

I am currently using my built in router on my Imac as my main source for internet to other devices. I recently bought a xbox 360 wireless adapter and am trying to connect it to the wireless coming from my Imac.

The xbox picks up the connection and I enter the WEP code on the xbox and it say connected. However, when I try to go online on the xbox it says it cannot connect to the internet. Also, the IP address, subnet at gateway are all on the xbox.

The wireless connection from my Imac works with everything else (ie. laptop, phone etc.) so I dont know why this is not working.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks again
