Using AirPort to Share an Internet Account

One of the easiest and best ways to share an Internet account is to use AirPort. In fact, using AirPort automatically means that you are able to share an Internet account among computers using an AirPort-compatible, wireless connection. And you can also use an AirPort-equipped Mac to share an Internet connection with machines on an Ethernet network.

When you install and configure an AirPort Hardware Access Point (also known as an AirPort Base Station), you can share the Internet account with which it is configured among AirPort-equipped Macs that can access that network. You can also share an Internet account among computers that are connected to the Hardware Access Point via Ethernet. This is because the Hardware Access Point is capable of acting as a DHCP server for the network and can provide that service to computers connected via AirPort and via Ethernet at the same time.
