    Wireless PC to Mac wirelss network

    I can get the PC to comnnect to the Mac wireless network. But for that to happen, neither the MAc nor the PC can access the Internet. If the Mac accesses the Internet, then the PC can see but cannot connect to the wireless network.

    Does anyone know of a good write-up or have some helpful hints about making this all work?

    Can you describe how your network is set up? DSL, Cable, router/switch/hub, etc?

    Cable modem with a wireless Apple router (Apple calls it an Air-something). Does this help enough?

    Airport. Yes, that helps quite a bit. Unfortunately, I have no experience with Apple's networking hardware. Have you checked the Apple AirPort website and made certain you have all of the latest updates? There appears to be an administrative utility for the hardware as well. Perhaps one of our more Apple-savvy users will have a better answer for you than I...

    Bruce,
    I am a Mac-addict but I don't use Airport. Check out the Apple site here or check out the Airport for Windows forum here . You will have to register to post a question there, but that's free. Good luck, and if you find an answer please post it back here - someone else may find it useful in the future.
