    Is there any way in Leopard to set up a password for a wireless network created by the airport of a computer connected via ethernet? I heard there was a way but i can't find it in the sharing options.

    It's right there under "Airport Options":

    Greyed out...

    Ehm, on my iMac, those options are greyed out. I cannot indicate from where I want to share my connection, nor can I indicate to what computers I want to share, nor can I click on the options-button... What now? :/

    It sounds like you're connected to a WiFi network while trying to set up sharing.

    You have to be connected via Ethernet to share via your Mac's WiFi card.

    Uncheck the box in internet sharing first, then airport options should no longer be greyed out, add password, turn on internet sharing.

    But I have noticed that with a password enabled, the connection drops out often, especially with iPod Touches.
