Big Computer help needed. internet shit please.
I just bought a macbook laptop thats in my room and i have ethernet wireless internet running through it, what my question is if i cansomehow make my computer run internet through the jack my xbox live runs through. Its not USB but for the things with the clicky tops that click when you insert them., When i put it in and try to connect to xbox live it says my cables are detected but my internet for my laptop isnt running through the jack in my computer for the xbox live, is there anyway i can configure it to provide internet to that specific jack so i can play xbox live?!?!?!?
you might want to rephrase that, but I'm guessing you want a router so you can connect your labtop and xbox at the same time?

is there anyway to use the internet that is running on my laptop to power my xbox live internet connection by using the jack on the side of my computer that currently does not have internet capabilities.
Go to preferences by clicking on the apple in the upper left. There should be an option somewhere that you click that will allow you to share your internet connection and you specify which port it shares through, look in internet options or sharing or one of those
oh wait up:
you already have wifi running on your laptop
you want your xbox to connect to the internet via your laptop?
google internet connection sharing on macs or something. it used to be possible to do something similar on windows when you had dialup and wanted to share your internet connection over a lan. One thing I can think of.. when creating a computer - computer network as you're wanting to do you need a crossover cable instead of a normal ethernet cable. Not sure if that would be the case for an xbob though

Wifi is coming in through wireless. He wants the internet to go out through his ethernet. I don't think its possible though.
the phone jack that has the symbol <---> is what im plugging the cord that runs to my xbox for xbox live into my laptop but the jack on the side of my computer is not provideing the xbox with internet that it so despretly needs.
my bad, i figured it out just after i posted. didnt see your reply.
sorry about the double posting

there should be 2 jacks on the side of your comp one is slightly smaller and the other slightly larger. if you're using the phone jack you're gonna need to use the network jack, whick is the slightly larger one of the two. other than that you're gonna have to look at your network and internet settings

I understand what you're saying, but I'm pretty sure its not possible.

i checked off internet sharing in my internet options and its shared to other computers with built in ethernet or firewire. i was so confident it was about to work, then it still doents
make sure your firewall is turned off too or at least allows that certain port. Your school may have a firewall as well that you might not be able to change...
it's not possible i tried with my ibook a while ago
