Network profile and Internet sharing

Hi,
In the network System preference applet there is the possibility to create network profiles for different environement, ex: Home, work, etc.
In sharing preferences includes the Internet sharing as well.
Is it possible to attach a Network profile to an Internet sharing configuration?
What I'm trying to do is to have an Internet sharing profile when I want to share my Airport card in ad-hoc mode (to share with my Newton), but when I'm finished, I do want to switch back to the normal Airport operation so I can use my PB in wireless mode.
So, I need a way to bind the 2 together without having to reconfigure all my network preferences all the time.
Thanks

Hi,
What you suggested, is exactly what I've been trying and is not working.
I think your mistaken:
Location are great to create new network profiles, true. You can't access them from the Airport menu, but from the Apple menu in the submenu location.
The problem is that this does not include the Internet sharing preferences, located into the Sharing preferences pane. So, switching location does not switch Internet sharing preferences. You have to disable and enable them each time.
So, that's not the solution I'm searching for, unless you know some way to bind the 2 seting into a location.
Thanks

  • Airport and internet sharing turns off by itself

    Hi everyone, I have an imac that I purchased earlier this year, and I use internet sharing to get internet for my ipod touch. Until a few months ago, this worked fine but now airport and internet sharing turn off every time I restart the computer and I have to turn both back on every time. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or know hot to fix it?

    Hi and Welcome to Apple Discussions...
    Download and install the v10.5.8 combo update available here.
    http://support.apple.com/downloads/MacOS_X_10_5_8_ComboUpdate
    One of the "fixes" includes: - compatibility and reliability issues when joining AirPort networks.
    After the installation, repair disk permissions.
    Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac.

  • OSX 10.6.8 and Internet Sharing to Ethernet

    I am trying to set up Internet Sharing so that I can connect my old MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 via ethernet to another device - I'm trying with xbox360 and Sony Blu Ray (BPD-S185) (for diversity of devices - I used to have it working on my xbox, but really want it working with the blu ray player but the network status feedback is better for problem solving on the xbox!).
    I have my MBP connected to my home network over Airport which has the following details:
    - IP: 192.168.1.5
    - Router IP: 192.168.1.1
    I have then enabled Internet Sharing through System Preferences to share my Airport connection to my Ethernet connection.
    I have the following Ethernet settings:
    - Configure IPv4: Using DHCP with manual address
    - (Ethernet) IP address: 192.168.2.1
    - Subnet Mask: (blank - not user accessable, changes to 255.255.255.0 when xbox turned on)
    - Router: (blank - not user accessable)
    - DNS Server: 192.168.1.1
    - Search Domains: (left blank)
    On the xbox I've set the network settings to:
    - IP: 192.168.2.2
    - Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    - Gateway: 192.168.2.1
    - Primary DNS: 192.168.1.1
    - Secondary DNS: 192.168.2.1
    When I then select 'Test my Xbox Live Connection'  it takes a while, the Network status shows 'Connected', however The Internet Failed.  I am informed that the 'Test Failed' and 'more information' tells me I have an 'Internet Error' with the following Status codes:
    W: 0000-000B
    X: 0000-000D
    Y: 0000-0000
    Z: 0000-0000
    ID0004-000
    L: 0015-10F1
    Q: 8007-0435
    T: Wired
    A: 192.168.2.2/255.255.255.0
    G: 192.168.2.1
    D: 192.168.1.1/192.168.2.1
    So, it looks as though the problem lies with the MBP and internet sharing on OSX.  I have extra suspicions that this is the problem, as connecting my Blu Ray player to my MBP via ethernet I also get a successful connection to the network, but no internet access.
    Pleeeeease can someone help?!?!  This is driving me nuts - a couple of years ago I had internet sharing working to let my xbox connect to the internet, so what's happened in the last few years to mean this won't work?

    If you want to back it up there, use the Disk Utility to create a disk image of it.
    If you want to import its contents to iMovie, iTunes, or elsewhere, use MPEG Streamclip and Apple's MPEG-2 playback component to convert the VOB files on it to a different format.

  • Just bought a 3TB Time Capsule for a small office. Will have 4 users with MacBooks. What would ne the best setup for time machine individual backups and internet sharing in a secure way?

    Just bought a 3TB Time Capsule for a small office. Will have 4 users with MacBooks. What would ne the best setup for time machine individual backups and internet sharing in a secure way?

    Set up each Mac for Time Machine backups in the normal way.  Time Machine will keep each backup separate on the Time Capsule, so users will only be able to see the backups of their own Mac.
    Yes....there are convoluted workarounds that might allow one user to see the backups of another.....IF...they know the administrator password of the "other" Mac.
    As far as Internet sharing, all users will have access to the Internet if they have a wired or wireless connection. If a Mac connects using wireless, it is possible to limit the time that they are allowed to connect to the network.
    For example, you might limit the ability to connect to the wireless from say each Weekday from 8 AM to 6 PM.
    With a wired Ethernet connection, you cannot limit access times to the Internet.

  • Error message about firewall and internet sharing

    hello all i have a question regarding the use of firewall and internet sharing.
    I have a PMG5 connected to internet through Airport. I've linked an Xbox 360 via the built-in ethernet port in order to access Xbox Live. I had to open specific UDP ports on the OS X firewall but it now works fine. However, in the Sharing Preference Pane, Internet Tab, i still get an error message saying that my Internet Sharing is disturbed by the settings of the firewall and sharing services, it says that i did not activate "personal web sharing" in the first two tabs...but i DID ! And there's no way to get rid of this error message.
    I know I know some may consider it's not a real problem because it's just an error message while the connection actually works fine but well, I tend to hate error messages when they're not supposed to show up. So if anyone know the answer, thanks in advance...
    Good day to everyone
    Vince, Paris...

    sorry about the delay in replying, was kinda busy
    well trashing the pref files was useless and i tried with another user, same thing. As for the second opinion, the problem was not about which port was used cause as i said the connection sharing works fine and anyway it was the correct port that was checked, it's just that i get an error message while there is no apparent error and everything works fine, i'm told that personal web sharing is not enabled but it is...
    Anyway as i said, it's probably not a real matter, as long as it works...which brings me to another thing. I've created a special protocol in the firewall to enable a proper dialog with the xbox. it's basically the same thing you do for ichat AV when you have video connection problems, you track down the concerned UDP port using terminal, you allow traffic and all... The protocol for the xbox worked great for some days, but now it seems it's not enough, the game set keeps trying on another port and i constantly have to update the protocol or deactivate the firewall...and enabling back all UDP traffic is not enough to solve it.
    In a way i think everything is linked, the initial error message when everything was fine and the current trouble. Any idea?
    thanks

  • Help with LTE and Internet Sharing for BUIlD Lumia...

    Nokia,
    I received the Lumia 920 when I was at BUILD 2 weeks ago. I followed the instructions and the phone mostly works on AT&T. I had a 900 so I assumed my LTE and Internet Sharing plan would easily transfer. Unfortunately that does not seem to be the case. I called AT&T gave them my IMEI number but it's not in their system and is not recognized as a Lumia 920. Because this is not an "AT&T phone" they wouldn't do much more to help. My data connection only ever shows 4G, never LTE as my 900 does and I cannot enable Internet Sharing even though it's on my data plan. I believe this is all controlled by the IMEI number.
    Is there anything Nokia can do to help us? I can't imagine I'm the only one having this problem! I'm going to try again to see if I can get the issue escalated and maybe they can force the IMEI number to be recognized as a 920.
    Thanks!

    Sorry I never came back to update. The fix, as has been noted already, is to make sure AT&T has your IMEI as another 920 or your old 900 so that you get LTE (which appears as "4G"). Then, in the Nokia Access Point config setting (under System Config), make sure LTE2 is selected, then install an additional keyboard (I tried both Spanish and Chinese). This will force an OTA update that seems to enable Internet Sharing. I had to redo it a second time when I updated my Nokia Access Point app last week, but I just re-installed a NEW keyboard and got Internet Sharing back. It hasn't gone away since, contrary to what others have experienced. For more info (and where I found the fix) see this XDA thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1971997

  • Airport Roaming Network and Internet Sharing

    Dear Esteemed Experts (Tesserax et. al):
    Thanks to you, I have successfully set up TC and 2 Airport Express N in a roaming network (plugged to Ethernet but using the same name and protocol) using 802.11n (b/g compatible) radio mode. It's working well, except a few blind spots to cover.
    If I want to add an old b/g-only Airport Express or Netgear Access Point (WG602) to this roaming network (plugging them into Ethernet outlet), will this slow down the N network?
    Also, can I turn on Internet Sharing on my iMac (with N capability) and make it to join the Roaming Netowrk? If so, can I manage it through Airport Utility?
    Thanks
    Aghoo

    If I want to add an old b/g-only Airport Express or Netgear Access Point (WG602) to this roaming network (plugging them into Ethernet outlet), will this slow down the N network?
    If it is connected via Ethernet it will have no direct affect on the performance of the 802.11n network.
    lso, can I turn on Internet Sharing on my iMac (with N capability) and make it to join the Roaming Netowrk?
    Internet sharing has nothing to do with joining a wireless network. If you want your iMac to join the wireless network, just go to the AirPort menu and select the network that you want to join.
    If so, can I manage it through Airport Utility?
    AirPort Utility is only for managing Apple's base stations.

  • Computer - computer network and internet sharing

    I apologise if this has been discussed elsewhere - please point me to any useful links.
    I have a G4 iMac and iBook (running 10.4.6) both with airport extreme cards installed. I would like to use a computer to computer connection for file / printer sharign and most importantly to share the ethernet connection to the internet running through my iMac.
    I would be extremely grateful if someone could point out how to do this and incorporate a practicable level of security (I don't want any of the hundreds of people in adjacent flats downloading lord knows what through my connection).
    Having accomplished this, I then need to be able to create a similar connection when required so that when required I can share the internet connection from the iMac with our PC laptop running Windows XP service pack 2.
    So, the simpler the better, instructions for creating a computer - computer network for internet and file sharing between two Macs and following that between the Mac with the internet connection and a Windows laptop.
    Thank you very much in advance.
    G4 iMac USB 2.0 / G4 iBook   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    You don't need to setup up computer to computer connection if your using internet sharing. Once you start internet sharing then your 2 computers are connected togther.
    I would be extremely grateful if someone could point out how to do this and incorporate a practicable level of security (I don't want any of the hundreds of people in adjacent flats downloading lord knows what through my connection).
    The problem you have is that if you enable internet sharing on one of your macs to share its connection over airport then the only level of security you can enable is WEP encryption.
    The problem with WEP encryption is that it offers no real security and can easily be cracked. WPA is the only security you should consider using and unfortunately OSX does not have WPA encryption functionality when using the built in internet sharing function.
    Your best solution is to get a wireless router that has a SPI firewall an WPA encryption. Depending on what your current internet connection is and how it is provided would determine the best kind of router to get.

  • Screen-Sharing and Internet-Sharing via same network connection

    Hello out there,
    I'm using a TiBook (G4 867MHz) and a MacBook Pro 17". They are connected via a WLAN-router. Additionally the MBP is connected to the internet via an UMTS-connection established with a Merlin 870XU type PC-card.
    Network is working fine, including screen-sharing. Also the internet connection on MBP works without error. But if I activate Internet-Sharing via WLAN to get my TiBook connected to the internet, the MBP connection to the WLAN is cut off.
    Can somebody tell me what's going wrong and how to solve it?

  • Created Network and Internet Sharing Problems

    Hello,
    I created network with WEP password. I proceeded to turn on internet sharing.
    All works great until the iMac goes to sleep.
    Once it comes back on the network I created is missing and I have create it all over again.
    The internet connection is through ethernet staring into the iMac.
    Is there a way to get the iMac to stop forgetting the created network and leave the internet connection on? Even when it's sleeping.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,
    Is there a reason why you chose WEP? I ask because WEP is an encryption technology that has been cracked so if possible I"d suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption instead. Am I correct to assume you don't have a router and all the other computers connect to the internet through the imac? If you don't have a router I'd suggest you buy one, they are not much money and provide excellent protecton from the internet. A router will protect all the computers on your network behind its firewall and would no longer have to connect through the imac.
    A couple of things to check:
    Go to System Preferences>Network and highlight 'Wireless' on the left side. (Also, if you don't use Bluetooth or any other type of networking listed there delete them from the list leaving only Ethernet and Airport) Uncheck 'ask to join new networks'.
    Then click on 'Advanced..' and under the Airport tab make sure only your network is listed in the 'Prefered Networks' window. Under that window check 'remember any network this computer has joined' and uncheck 'disconnect from wireless networks when logging out'.
    That's the way I've got my computer set up and I've never lost a connection.

  • Remembered Networks and Internet Sharing

    How can you view the list of remembered wireless networks to remove one of them? I don't want to connect to this one network when i'm in a certain area, and airport instantly connects when I turn it on. Also, whenever I turn on airport, my powerbook shows up as an ad hoc computer to connect to. Even when my airport is turned off, people can still see my SSID broadcasted from the powerbook. Is there anyway to completely shut down internet connection sharing so that my powerbook does not act as a wireless point?

    To turn off Internet Sharing, go into System Prefs -> Sharing -> Internet and untick it.
    To change your preferred list, go into System Prefs -> Network -> Airport (from drop down menu). You can also de-activate ad-hoc networks by removing them from the list and change the order they wish to connect to.

  • Create a wireless network AND Internet sharing?

    Hi all,
    I own a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, and currently live at a state university. The problem is that the wireless network won't allow communication between devices, only to the internet, and you aren't allowed to have a wireless router. You are, by some strange loophole, allowed to share an internet connection from a computer. My problem is that I either can share the Internet (which doesn't allow me to use apps that use WiFi to communicate with my Mac, like iDisplay) or create a wireless network (which means I can't connect to the internet via WiFi on my phone). So here's my question:
    How can I share my internet connection with my iPhone as well as be able to use apps that communicate with my mac, such as iDisplay?
    Any insight would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Your Mac is already using the Wifi to connect to the  network, you don't have control over the router can't have one, so you can't make any changes to have your iPhone use the router to communicate with your Mac.
    They likely already have enough bandwidth issues as it is to allow streaming between devices on the local network too.

  • Open DNS and internet sharing

    I am seeing strange behavior, and wondering if anyone has a thought about what is going on.
    I am at a hotel with fast internet service over ethernet, but, for whatever reason, DNS seems very slow if I use DHCP to connect (timeouts of 5-10 secs to get to a new site). If I switch to DHCP with fixed DNS, and use the Open DNS servers (208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220) the latency issues go away.
    The interesting thing is that I am sharing the internet connection over Airport to my wife's computer (she connecting thru DHCP). If I use a fixed DNS for MY computer, then her computer cannot connect thru internet sharing. But if I use the (slow) DHCP connection, then she can connect through mine. I have not tried setting up her computer with a fixed DNS, as she really doesn't like me to change settings on her computer
    Is this a known limitation of internet sharing, or is there something I should know?
    TIA

    In more detail, if my ethernet (the computer that is doing the sharing), is set up with Configure: Using DHCP, and DNS Server: 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 (in Network Panel for Ethernet), then the computer connecting thru Internet Sharing in Sharing Panel is not able to access some or all resources thru http (ie, pages fail to load, or do not fully load).
    However, if I clear the DNS Server part in the Network Panel, thereby using the the DNS Servers supplied by the hotel, then my computer's connection to the internet is slower, with long waits (presumably due to a slow DNS server), but computers accessing the internet via Airport thru my shared connection are able to browse the internet successfully.
    I suspect that when I have a fixed DNS server in my computer, that fact is not broadcast to computers using the shared connection. But I am not an expert in TCP/IP, and may well be confused about how DHCP, DNS, and Apple's Internet Sharing work together.
    Thanks for any ideas you have
