    I want to share my internet connection from Airport to computers connected to another network created by a USB wireless device attached to my system.

    The network created by the USB wireless is working fine, and computers can connect to it, but they can't access the internet.

    Any ideas?

    Oops, found my problem. Easy fix.

    ipfw on my computer was denying packets from other computers as they traveled between the two networks. I had to add a new allow rule.

    Thanks anyway.
