    Since I got my Mac I've been at Uni where we're only provided with a single Ethernet connection. I use the built in Internet Sharing to connect my Xbox to Xbox Live however no other Apple products, iPhones or MacBooks, will connect to it. I have the wireless name the same as the computer and have a 5 character password.

    I've had nothing but trouble with this built in system since I started using Macs over 5 years ago.

    Are there any good alternatives to the build in Internet Sharing or fixes?

    And some universities will get upset if you set up your own router.
