Hi there, Can I connect the New Dish Network VIP 922 Sling directly to my Mac Mini? as this sits behind my Flat Screen and I would like to pull the wireless from my Mac Mini. Is there any other benfits?

Kind Regards

James in Dallas

P.S. There are things I know & there are things I do not.

Sure, you can setup Internet Sharing to share from AirPort to computers using Ethernet. It's under Sharing in System Preferences. It's pretty straightforward, but let me know if you need help.

Does Internet sharing work with Xbox 360? I might move mine to my bedroom where my Mini is, but don't want to buy a wireless adapter for the 360.

It sure does. You just have to manually input some settings into the xbox 360. This guide worked for me. it should work for you. http://www.joystiq.com/2006/07/17/how-to-share-your-macs-internet-connection-with-your-xbox/
