Make Internet Sharing DHCP work with an Xbox/Xbox 360
Authored by: Michelasso on Jan 18, '08 11:59:59AM

You are a G E N I U S!

I spent so many hours trying to make the DHCP working with my PS3 that eventually I gave up. Now it works with both Ethernet and Airport using OSX 10.4.10. Here are step I followed (more or less like you did, just to confirm):

- Start NetInfo from Application/Utility
- Browse config then select dhcp
- set "reply_threshold_seconds" to "0"
- dhcp_enabled must have the list of interfaces you want to share for DHCP connection. In my case :(en0,en1)
- Go to menu "Domain" then "save changes" (I am translating it from Italian)

There is no need to reboot.

From the PS3 point of view, just tell the PS3 to have an automatic IP address and DNS server. Until now I had to set them by hand, and it was a pain in the ass.

I still have two minor problem:

- The Internet bandwidth via Airport is about 1/3 (50KBytes/sec) of the max bandwidth. No problem with the ethernet connection. The WiFi connection is good because I am using Medialink as a UPnP media server for streaming videos, and I have peaks of MBytes/sec.
- If I enable the OSX internal firewall, OSX forwards to and receives from the Internet the requests from the PS3, but then it does not forward the replies to the PS3.

Anyone has any idea?
