    Hello,


    I hook my desktop windows pc to my macbook pro through ethernet to transfer files.

    since my desktop doesn't get very good reception, i want to have my macbook pro's airport internet conenction be shared with my desktop through ethernet.

    i go to sharing/internet and turn on to share airport through ethernet, but my windows pc doesn't get the internet through ethernet yet. how do i set up the pc?

    thanks,
    r.

    Make sure the PC's ethernet port is enabled and maybe disable the wireless card too. :)

    make sure it's share ethernet through airport, probably just a typo.

    Does the PC have a manual IP address or is it set for DHCP, I think it should be the latter but I may be wrong.

    this may help also - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=54704

    Were you able to solve this problem?

    I have the save problem and I am using a crossover ethernet cable. I am not able to configure Windows 7.

    Thanks,
