Ok I have a mac notebook with Wireless internet, so I plugged a network cable from that while it was on into the back of my PC...it wouldn't pick the internet up through it. Is this possible to do it this way or do I have to have a seperate adapter for it? Or maybe I just haven't set it up as I'm not very savvy with PCs compared to macs. Thanks in advance

Hi there - and Welcome to Geeks to Go!

I don't know if it is possible to share a wireless connection from a Mac, I'm guessing you should be able to.

On Windows XP I know you can share the connection by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Network Setup Wizard and following it through to fit your needs. If and when you find a way to share the connection on the mac, you will need to run the Network Setup Wizard, using "Connect to the internet through another computer on this network" - or something along these lines.

Good Luck - Sam
