Question Sharing Wireless with a mac

Running Vista, DSL, with Linksys Router. All Working fine. Trying to share wireless internet with Mac in the basement apartment. Mac says it is connected with good signal, but will not allow internet connection through Safari. Old Mac laptop! Any ideas.

Default Re: Sharing Wireless with a mac

  1. Establish an internet connection with your AirPort or wireless port.
  2. Go to "System Preferences" > "Sharing" > "Internet" Tab.
  3. Choose AirPort or wireless port in the "Share your connection from:" pop-up.
  4. Check Built-in Ethernet in the "To computers using:" list.
  5. Click the "Start" button.


Did that help any?
