Never tried it for xbox. However, I connect to my wireless on my iBook and share the connection. I set my iBook like this. Allow web sharing and internet sharing under the Sharing option for System Pref. I chose share this connection via Airport to computers using eithernet. Then I plugged in my 1st Gen iMac G3 (os9.2.2) and it has access to the WWW. I'm not sure how the xbox is done but if you haven't tried it this way mabey it will help...

You wouldn't need to get a wireless adapter if it's nearby. You could connect it to your Mac via Ethernet, then use the Mac as a bridge.

Alternately you could plug the Xbox straight into the router.

that is the problem.... windows computer did share net connection easily after i failed to get the x-box to share the net connection.......it (xbox) states every reason for failing right up to the mac address........ computer had no such problems......router is in unaccessable room...emac need to be my gateway(which i can roam the rest of the house with a strong net connection...4 bars steady)........
