    My macpro for some reason doesnt have the signal catching strength of my macbook. I want to temporarily use my macbooks internet on my mac pro. I went to sharing and clicked share internet and plugged them into eachother via ethernet, but it didnt work...or i just did it wrong. Is there an easy way to do this?


    One weird thing, I clicked on the wireless icon nd clicked create network. i created a network and enabled data sharing...i was able to access all the file on each computer respectively without plugging them into each other....how does this work? If they can share data without being plugged in why cant they share internet!?

    The Mac Pro's wireless and bluetooth antennas were hooked up incorrectly.

    A search should tell you which wires you have to switch.

    It worked at my other house. Maybe something jarred loose during the move? I tried to share from my macs airport connection via network/sharing, but nothing but no dice. I just shot a pic of the airport card, does this look normal? is there somwhere else i need to look?
