    Internet Sharing with a PC
    I am trying to share the internet connection my father has setup with his iMac through AirPort. I have a Toshiba laptop and I can connect to the network created by AirPort built into his computer but the internet connection doesn't seem to work. Is it at all possible to share an internet connection over the wireless built in to my father's Mac or does it need to be hard-wired?

    Specs:
    Mini C2D 2Ghz 8GB RAM, MB C2D 2.2Ghz, MBP CD 2Ghz, 1TB TC, 2 APX, iPhone 4, ATV2, 23in ACD x2
    The iMac needs to be hardwired to the internet and share its hard connection via Airport. Don't forget to hit the options button and enable some security. Also your PC needs to be set to use DHCP.
