Hi All,

When I first got my Imac in nov '07 I had my wii sharing its internet cable conection Via my airport extreme card. Everything worked great. Then suddenly, it just stopped working. The wii and my Ipod touch will connect to the Imac but will not share the internet connection. Airport keeps giving me the self assigned IP address of 169... I know the Ipod and the wii are working because I can connect them both to another network in the building. The firewall is set to allow all incoming connections and internet sharing is on. I have tried to use different channels but to no avail. Is this a problem with an update or am I just missing something.

Thanks
