I've read a few vague threads (now a couple years old) saying that it was possible to set up an Apple TV without using a wireless router as long as you have an Airport card and the correct settings in a wireless network that you create. I am working with a PowerMac G5 dual 2.7Ghz, 8GB RAM, and I do have an airport card installed. I am running leopard and have downloaded all recent software updates.

The Apple TV is plugged in but does not see a wireless network and ITunes cannot see the Apple TV. Is it possible to do this without a wireless router? if so, how?

    Have you actually set up a network from your G5. If your wifi card is active you should have a wifi icon in your menu bar on the RHS, you need to create a network from there.
