I tried: System Preferences, Sharing, Internet tab, Share your connection from built in ethernet, to computers using AirPort, hit airport options to set up a password and select the name for your network.
I check the IP of my iPhone is "169.x.x.x" so this is a sign of failure of DHCP, so I set the IP mannually for both MAC and iPhone, I set Mac:, DNS:
iPhone:, Router:,DNS:

But it still not work..

What is the problem, any hint? Thanks in advance!

You can't have both the MAC and iPhone with the same IP address. That may be your problem.

Sorry, I made a mistake when type and I have correct it. Thery are not the same IP.

But I do have a problem.

When I set the SSID at the internet share-aireport, but I can not find the net.
Wehn I set the SSID at aireport configration, the IP is 169.x.x.x,it seems not been shared.
QUOTE Thanks
