ok here's an odd one for you guys, and ill explain why im trying to do this after. Im trying to connect to the internet through a macbook pro to my pc; And can't quite get it to work, obviously. If you guys know of some way to do it, this would be great. My PC is is a self built with windows xp home installed on it.

Now for why I'm doing it this way. My roommate is being an @ss, and won't let me connect an ethernet cord to the router, but is allowing me to stay on the wireless, either because he forgot I could or doesnt care. Either way I need to get online via my pc, and cannot get a wireless card til monday when my school loan check hits my mailbox.

Again If you guys could help out I'd Love it, if not I guess im SOL.

Thanx
Gnawbie

Bridge the connections in the PC, and leave the MAC settings at their defaults. Just select the two network connections by holding Ctrl and clicking them, right click on them and select Bridge.

Tell your roomate to **** off and just plug into the router. Unless it's his internet then you just need to get your own.
