    I have a new MacBook OS X 10.5 and Windows XP SP2 (using boot camp). My internet connection is dialup through my iMac OS X 10.4 with external modem. I am set up with a home network using firewire. I also set up a network using airport, which shows as connected, but not able to see other computer. I am able to access the internet on my MacBook logged into Windows via the wireless network. I am unable to access the internet at all logged into OS X on MacBook.

    I have been able to complete the wireless network using airport and can access my iMac from MacBook, but still cannot access internet except when logged onto windows on MacBook.

    That could be an issue.

    So you have your iMac sharing the internet through Airport to your Macbook? And it only works when the Macbook is in Windows. That was a lot of words to state a simple network (quite confusing). And I don't know what you're talking about with the firewire network.

    Either way does the Macbook see the wireless signal?
