    Hey everyone I am wondering it is possible to share an internet connection between two apple computers via bluetooth. I have an iMac G5 first generation and a new Macbook Pro. The iMac has an ethernet connection in it. So I would like to share the internet from my iMac to my Macbook. Is this possible. I've been playing around in the system preferences with sharing it via bluetooth but have failed to figure it out. So if anyone can help that would be great.

    Not sure if it's possible, mate. Does the iMac have an AirPort card?

    If you have BT then you should have an Airport card. This is the way to share your internet connection. Sharing Prefs>Internet Tab> Share from Ethernet to Airport Card. Boom. All done.

    well the thing is I don't have an airport card in my iMac. So does this make it impossible to share the internet? could i share it via a usb or firewire cable?
