I have an Intel Imac running 10.4.11. It is connected to the Internet Via Ethernet. I am trying to share the connection with a Dell Laptop with a dell wireless device.

I went to SysPrefs>sharing> Internet. and then clicked share connection using ethernet then clicked to computers using Airport. clicked Airport and gave the network a name. I didn't click any security preferences because I want to leave it open until it works.

anyway I clicked Start and it seems to be turned on but my PC Cannot find that wireless connection anywhere. It finds a bunch of other peoples but not mine. Any tips for getting it to even see the PC?
