    So...
    i have a macbook pro with windows vista on it, and i cant get it to connect to imac internet sharing, i can get my mac os to connect, but when i go on windows, i cant.

    when i diagnose the problem it says the wireless settings on this computer do not match the requirements if this network..

    i found this website: http://www.ehow.com/how_5334517_connect-mac-wireless-internet-share.html
    and i know how to set the imac to internet share... but that last step that i have to put the internet type as "shared" on my macbook(windows) i have no clue where to find it.

    its the network authentication settings, or some settings.
    i looked in the internet settings and idk if or where it is.
    keep in mind i have windows vista.


    Any help at all? please?

    I've never tried this but can you tell us which part doesn't work?

    Can you see the broadcast from your iMac on the Vista OS? or are you having problems accessing the internet after the connection?

    Also, to troubleshoot it might be handy to make a note of the IP and subnet from OSX on your MBP.
