    Can one use a PowerBook with Tiger to share an internet connection? In other words, can two AirPort-enabled Macs with Tiger use Bonjour to share an internet connection? I have a PowerBook plugged into a cable modem, and want to know if I can use it as a wireless router using Bonjour.

    You dont even need to use Bonjour.

    Go into the Sharing preference pane, then the Internet tab on your computer connected to the modem and turn on internet sharing. On the other computers, just select the wireless network which you created by using Internet Sharing and you're all set

    Great, thanks. Can a PC use this network as well?

    as long as they are in range it should be okay; but they lose their connection if ur pb is in sleep mode

    so if i were u get a airport or other wireless router so u can keep ur wifi network up and running without ur pbook :)
