Sharing Your Internet Connection

If you have multiple computers that need access to the Internet, but only one Internet connection, you can set up Mac OS X to share the connection it has with other computers on your network. Here are some possible configurations:

  • If your primary connection is via AirPort, any machines connected to it via ethernet can connect to the Internet.

  • If your primary connection is an ethernet connection, your machine can become an AirPort base station and share its connection with others using AirPort wireless technology (assuming that the sharing computers all have AirPort cards). It can also share with other computers that use ethernet.

  • If your connection is a modem, your machine can share connections through both AirPort and ethernet.
