    Hi,

    I have my wife Intel MacBook connected to the internet with an Ethernet cable. Then the Internet is being shared wirelessly from the MacBook to my Intel iMac.

    It worked perfectly for a few month, but today, my iMac can only receive the signal. Being on the Internet is not working.

    I restarted router and both computers but still nothing. I also resetted the PMU of my iMac but nothing.

    What can I do ? My iPhone connects fine and the MacBook as well.

    Please help me,

    Thanks.

    Since the Macbook is mobile wouldn't it be smarter to run the ethernet cord through the iMac and share the internet that way?

    Sorry, but the way our house is set up, we cannot do that.

    Why do you connect through the macbook instead of the router? Is the router not wireless?

    Indeed not wireless. Also we receive Internet via satellite so the router is in the basement.

    I deleted the profile that I created to share the internet and simply created a new one. For the moment, everything works fine now. I will report if it goes wrong again.
