    Stupid question time: Any way to use the ethernet port on my powermac G4 for the input to my Xbox? I don't really know a whole lot about networking, so I am just wondering if this is possible. TIA.

    No no no. Not video. I know that much, I want to use it so I don't have to buy the stupid linksys wireless game adapter to use xbox live. Can I do that? Do I have to change any settings on OS X?


    Oh, yeah, I'm a lurker. I've actually been lurking for like 4 years, lol.

    You want go; xbox->mac->internet?
    You'd better off getting the xbox connected directly. And who says you have to buy Linksys' wifi game adapter? Netgear and D-Link make them as well.
