Ok, I have a 27" iMac and is connected wireless to my home router. I have a old desktop pc next to my iMac and I was wondering if I can plug it into the imac with a Ethernet cable and get connection? I remember I could bridge connections on a pc but this is a mac, different. + Rep to whoever helps! :smile:

Yea you should be able to. PLug the PC into the MAC via Ethernet then go to System Preferences-->Sharing-->Internet Sharing-->Select Ethernet as the method to share your connection and Turn on Web and Internet sharing.

Yes of course, it's along the same lines of doing this with and Xbox 360, you can of course do this with your old PC as well.
