Does anyone here, preferably on OS X, have Avalaunch connected to the internet like this: A wireless router (mine's an airport express) connected to interne-> a laptop (powerbook) connected to the router wireless (thereby having access to the internet)-> Xbox wired to the laptop via a crossover cable. The laptop would have internet sharing enabled (very easy to do on OS X) allowing, theorectically, the xbox to access the internet with the powerbook acting as a bridge. I'm just wondering if I were to do this, what would be the network settings that Avalaunch uses, things like Gateway, whether or not Avalaunch should use DHCP, etc. Thanks for any assistance, as I realize this kind of setup must be quite rare.

Dunno how OS X handles Internet Sharing.. but maybe u have to provide a static IP to your Box and not use DHCP
