share internet connection
i am not sure if this was covered before but i have a question about sharing internet connection. currently my ibook supplies the internet connection to my xbox. the ibook is going through my wireless network. if i was instead to be getting internet connection through a phone line, could i turn on appletalk and share connection to another laptop, happens to be dell? thanks.

I think that should work. Turn on sharing internet w/in preferences, and bam.
On a slight side note, if you have a wireless network, why can't you connect the dell to that?

i am going to mexico on saterday and i want to have the ibook hookedup to the the phone line with the dell hooked up to the ibook. will the dell see it almost like a hub? is there anyway i could send out a wireless signal from the ibook to the dell?

I think it should. I'm only running my thoughts on sheer coincidence, though. 'Cuase I've put my share internet connection on (by accident) and a pc ran through it. I put a stop to it, though. haha. I think it should work...just waiting for others to conferm my thoughts.
