Hey all, i have a quick question regarding internet sharing.

Is it possible to share a wireless internet connection between two computers via the airport card? For example, if My macbook pro is connected to a wireless network and to the internet, can I share my connection with another Airport-equipped mac via my own airport (which is also being used to connect to the internet in the first place). The only problem i can see is that the airport is essentially going in two directions, to the other computer and to the internet. Can this be done?

Thanks in advance.

sorry i mean the airport card in the MBP going two directions, one to the other Mac, and the other to the airport base station. Is that possible?

Well thats the problem, one of the macs (an older iBook) seems to be unable to connect to the wireless network. We havent spent any time diagnosing this particular problem, and we were curious to see whether the method I described in my OP would work.
