    Hi,

    I have use my mac computers many time as the wireless router by sharing through the airport express and it has worked great but I have only done it to share the internet with other macs. I just got my parents a macmini and i told them that it worked as a wireless router also but they are having problems connecting their PC laptop. How do I trouble shoot this. We are using a WEP. The PC sees the wireless name but cannot connect to it. PLEASE HELP!!

    Do you already have an existing Airport Extreme or similar wifi router? The Mac mini is wifi capable, but you still need a router such as an Airport Extreme. The Mini is not a wifi base station.

    It should be the same as your other macs. Try it without any security first.
