    Hi there
    I'm wondering how to do this
    Send internet from CDMA modem by internet sharing in mac OSX by Ethernet cable --> Belkin Router --> Clients
    Back on windows ICS made it imposibble. But with Mac OSX its very easy...
    Sharing by Airport works fine - but nothing seems to happen with ethernet
    I set it up as shown in the screenshot, but nothing happens
    the router is set to automatically get a dynamic ip, but still no internet on it.

    I hate to state the obvious, but Internet Sharing isn't turned on in your screenshot.

    I've never played around with this before, so maybe someone else can chime in. But, does OSX dole out DHCP addresses via the ethernet port when it's enabled for sharing? If it does then you don't have to bother with the outside port on the router. You can just use it as a switch and OSX can hand out the addresses. I don't know if it does, though.

    Have you exhausted MRoogle and other forum searches?

    hmm.. it seems to give it 0.0.0.0 which makes no sense
