Sharing wireless internet over Ethernet


I've shared my Ethernet internet connection over AirPort before, but it doesn't want to work the other way around.

I am on Leopard, enable Internet Sharing - AirPort over Ethernet and it doesn't seem to automatically change my Ethernet settings. If I give it a manual address it isn't sharing the internet over the Ethernet (although with static IP I can see the mac and its files etc) and if I give it a dynamic address via DHCP it sets its own self-assigned IP (which is expected I guess)...

Has anyone else experienced this?
