    Sorry about double post, not sure what happened. My bad.

    Hello

    If my macbook is picking up a wi-fi signal through its airport card, can I share that connection with my touch? Airport in my computer is strong enough to receive the signal, but my touch doesn't seem to be. In the internet sharing section of prefs, I've enabled it for sharing connection from the airport, but there isn't an option in share connection to computers using: for an airport or wi-fi card. Maybe it isn't possible to receive and share a connection from the same airport card in my mac?

    I've searched some threads and found some answers that pointed me in the right direction, but not an actual solution yet. I'm thinking that airport maybe can't receive and bounce a wi-fi signal at the same time.

    Thanks for your help!

    ps wanted to put a screen shot of my prefs in thread but I don't know how to get it in my message.

    Sorry - Airport won't let you share a wireless connection. If you have a wired (Ethernet connection) to your Mac, then you can share your wireless connection.
