hi everyone,
I was just wondering if it is possible to connect an xbox 360 to internet through your mac mini's wireless connection? and if so.....maybe a brief tutorial? Thanks in advance

I think you can.

I will explain and you could try this and see.

All macs have a networking function called share web connection this means other computers can use your macintosh to access the internet.

Now in theory this should work with the 360 minus one issue it might be slower then a snails pace i would just recommend purchasing the wireless adapter for the 360.
