Hi, as the title says, is that possible? I have a CC with presto plus and a G4 connected to a wireless connection. Then I was thinking to connect the CC to the G4 through a crossover cable, and acces to the internet through the G4.
Can I do that?
Thanks a lot.

Possibly, but . . .

a much easier solution would be to connect the CC to the broadband router directly, using Ethernet. If you haven't got a spare RJ-45 socket, use a cheap hub or switch.

Good luck!

Thanks!

Yep, that would be a sure shot, though router is somehow far, so I was trying the other way.
Thanks again!

Incidentally.

My reading of the notes about the latest Tiger update suggests that they've solved at least some of the filesharing problems with earlier versions of Mac OS.

Does this mean you can finally connect to an OS X Mac from a CC running 7.5.5? I can do it the other way around, but not the way I want, if you see what I mean Smile
