Hi guys
Here's my situation:
I have an Intel iMac, which I've had for a few years now and I also own a MacBook Pro, which I just purchased. I have a broadband connection connected to my iMac via a regular modem and now that I have a laptop, I've been using Airport for a wireless connection to the MacBook. My problem is, I didn't have to enter a password to connect to the iMac's Airport, so I'm thinking it's unsecure. I've tried to secure Airport on my iMac but I can't seem to figure it out. Is there any way to secure it or do I need to get a wireless router?
QUOTE Thanks

click open network prefs, create new network, require password. Enter the password, (5 characters) sharing, internet sharing on...

Mac is like a car, keep clean and up to date and it will give you many hours of good driving
