    iMac with wired broadband connection. I use airport with internet sharing to connect an ipod touch and macbook to the internet through the imac's broadband connection.

    Within the last few days, whenever I shutdown/restart, the internet sharing fails. Checkbox for internet sharing is still checked - I uncheck, select airport options, dialog comes up with all the right information already there, I click OK, click on internet sharing check box, click for internet sharing to start, green light comes on and everything works fine. Until I shutdown/restart - airport starts up OK but not internet sharing.

    Only thing I have consciously done recently is install Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (which actually works very well, giving me access to a remote MS Windows server ....). Removing this does not solve the problem with internet sharing, although I guess it could have modified something or put a file somewhere which deinstalling doesn't fix (I use AppTrap to try to clear all files when removing applications).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Re: Internet Sharing Stops on Shutdown/Restart

    I've been experiencing exactly the same problem for a while.

    The most irritating thing is that I remember that it used to work fine, with the sharing being on after restarting. Now, despite having the internet sharing check box ticked, any connection without restarting it leads to a timeout.

    Ridiculous.

    And very annoying.

    Internet sharing stops at shutdown/startup

    I am having the same problem. Is there still no solution to this?
