    Hey everyone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have my Mac Mini connected to the Internet via a 3G USB Modem. My WN802T is connected to the Mac Mini via ethernet. The problem is here... The WiFi network is broadcasted, but I cannot use the Internet from any devices.

    I have enabled Internet Sharing on my Mac, and have the latest FW on the AP.

    So is it setup like:

    Mac Mini with USB dongle --- (network cable) --- WAN port on Netgear router.

    and is the internet sharing setup so that it's sharing from the 3G dongle to computers using ethernet 1?

    Have you tried setting the IP address statically on both the Mac Mini's ethernet connection and the routers WAN connection?

    So say IP addresses of and subnet mask of on the Mac Mini's ethernet 1 and an IP address of and subnet mask of, and router address of on the routers internet connection/WAN.

    Hey there - thanks for the reply.

    I think hat's what happened and it works. I have no idea how, but it does. I got some router address that my phone got when it connected, and it works.

    Very odd, but I think this is what happened. That setup is correct.

    Thank you very much. :)
