Now, I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not XP's IP over Firewire implementation is compatible with OS X's.


I'd love to have a 400Mb/s connection between my XP based Home Theater and my Mac Desktop.

    Hi Wei,
    I sent a reply to your hotmail acount before I saw this.

    The main problem I have with networking at the moment is that my ISP broadband provider changes the IP address of my MAC OSX machine from a number starting 169.xxx.xxx.xxx to a number starting 82.xxx.xxx.xxx. This prevents the Windows machines from seeing the Mac machine and vice-versa. Is ther a way around this?

    Yes. Once you connect your Mac to your PC, restart your Mac. On your Mac, you can connect to the PC shared folder via Connect to Server... and use SMB://PC_NAME

    You can even share your internet connection with your PC using the techniques discussed in this article.

    Reconnect the cable if you have connection problems.
