    I was wondering if it would be possible to share an internet connection in this scenario. Here is my situation; I have a neighborhood WIFI connection which I can access the internet with Airport on my Mac laptop. Unfortunatly the signal doesn't reach some of the PC's in my house. I was wondering if it would be possible to share my internet connection that my Mac has with my PC's via erthernet cables as as a LAN or so. If it is possible how can my computers up to work like this? Thanks in advance.

    Get yourself a wireless bridge. Your bandwidth will be pretty crappy though.

    Neighborhood WiFi Connection? Is that AKA a neighbor that doesn't know about wireless security yet? :D
