    But I can't connect the PocketPC to the PowerBook yet. It didn't "see" the PowerBook. I've used "Create Network" function to create a Computer-to-Computer network.

    I do it at school in a class room that we cant reach school's wireless network, so one is sharing his etherent conection with the rest of the group. It is really cool and easy too. :)

    Yeah, instand wireless G network. Kind of makes a base station useless if you have a desktop mac with a G card.
