    Sharing wireless internet to ethernet?
    I am trying to share my MacBook's wireless internet connection to the built in ethernet port, but am having a few troubles. I go into sharing options and select "share your connection from: AirPort to computers using: Ethernet". I tick the box next to internet sharing and I get the warning prompt and then click start. At this point I lose all internet connections from AirPort, and the only way I can access the internet again is to untick the box next to internet sharing?? Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

    Cheers

    It says it "may affect the network settings of other computers and disrupt the network", which obviously it is doing, but I don't have a clue how to fix it/make it work.

    Weird. I will try myself when I'm at home and tell you the result.
