    I am in need of some help. If someone can help me (as soon as possible) it will be huge! Here's the question...

    I am currently at a conference and have a display set up. I have 8 macbooks at the booth, and I want each to have an internet connection. They offer wireless connection, but they are asking $75 per computer per day. I know I can't use a macbook with a wireless signal as a wireless router, but could I possibly use an ethernet cable to connect the computer with the wireless connection to another macbook, and then use that one as a router?

    Is the question clear? Let me know if not and I will clear it up.

    Thanks for your help

    Yes - you can go into System Preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing on the wireless receiving Macbook, tell it share connection from airport to "computers using" Ethernet.

    Then on the macbook connected to the receiver go to the same area, tell it to share from Ethernet to "computers using" airport. You will create a computer<>computer network and then log the rest onto it.
