    iMac, Macbook Pro... & Wired Broadband
    I have ethernet Broadband connected to my desktop iMac.

    I was just wondering if it is possible to run the Internet on my Macbook Pro from my iMac without having to buy a wireless router?

    If so, how can I do this?

    Simple answer is "Yes".

    1) Open "System Preferences", and go to Sharing window.
    2) Select the AirPort from the list and hit "Start".
    3) From" AirPort Options..", you can also password protect your connection. (Unfortunately, WEP is the only method available for encryption).

    Now you should see the iMac from MBP (click on the tiny AirPort symbol on the Main Menu).
