Could someone help me how to create a wireless network using the ethernet connection plugged into my macbook pro? Since I just moved into my new apartment and haven't got time to buy a new wireless router yet, I need to use my MBP to be the router for now. So far I've done: So far I have enabled the internet sharing and checked the airport box. Like so: I went to network to set up a new connection name "Bacon". But when I try to connect to my "Bacon" network using my iPhone, it doesn't work. All it says is "airport has a self assigned IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet", like so: Could someone help me please? I don't know what I have done wrong.
