    you would have to have 2 nics in the mac, one for an incoming wired connection to your laptop, and a wireless nic so it can act as a wireless access point.

    Network interface card....right.

    I thought the the whole point was that it uses teh airport card built in to broadcast a signal.

    Tank, it sounds like you are setting it up correctly. Do you ever use the airport to connect to a wireless network on campus. That would verify that it is working okay. Also, make sure that you have the airport turned on. Have you clicked on the "Airport Options..." button and looked at what's there? In there you can specific the name of the network and security options.

    I thought you were trying to use your mac computer as an access point.

    If you have an airport just plug the cat5 into it and the wii should detect it.

    This is the exact method I use to connect my Wii to the internet and it works awesome.

    I can't think of the link, but if you do a search for instructions on setting up a DS to use macintosh internet sharing, you will find the instructions. it's not as easy as just automatically connecting.

    found it
    How to use DS wi-fi with your Apple Mac DS

    "Type ifconfig en1 in the Terminal window. In the list that appears look for an entry reading 'inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask'. All those x letters represent numbers you'll see on your screen these are the IP address you need to type into your DS. Note them down."

    This is great but whe I use that command I don't get an inet value, I only get an inet6 value
