    Hello, I have one computer on high speed internet via ethernet cable from cable box. i would like to "broadcast" if you will, that connection to another computer wirelessly. I have tried computer to computer network creation but that is not working. what do i need to do?

    i have done it before where i received wireless access from another mates computer. i remember after selecting "friends computer" from my wireless network choices at the time, it would show signal strength just as if i were to have selected "lynksis" or something. the computer to computer networking shows the little computer icon in the signal strength. there must be another way.

    yeah anyway, any help would be great. thank you.

    Does the computer that you are trying to use to broadcast a connection have Airport?
