How to share my Huawei mobile broadband connection over my network
I bought an IMac and an iPhone and a Huawei mobile broadband modem. I shared the Huawei connection sucessfully over Airport and ethernet to my Iphone and my Toshiba laptop on Vista. Then I bought a Time Capsule and used ethernet cable to connect to iMac.
Now I cannot get my iPhone or laptop to share my iMacs's internet connection. It connects to Airport OK but Safari wont connect to internet. Toshiba reports no internet connection on ethernet or Airport.
Tried :- 1. unplugging ethernet cable from back of IMac, still no good. 2. turning power off to Time Capsule, still no good. 3. setting iPhone to join Time Capsule Airport Network, no good. 4. setting iPhone to connect to IMac Airport Network, no good.
Time Capsule Airport is set to issue DHCP and anything ethernet I plug in happily received an IP address eg my iPhone, my Toshiba laptop, my Pioneer Blue Ray. Huawei is set to highest priority in network preferences. Got latest software versions for iMac and Time Capsule, iPhone 2 software in iPhone.
How has Time Capsule disabled my internet sharing from Huawei-on-iMac to iPhone, even when it is unplugged and physically powered down ?

Have you ever wonder if you could connect your 3G mobile broadband modem to your xbox360? Well i have done it and it works fine.
What you will need to do is enable network sharing in your laptop/pc
I am using a vista laptop and orange mobile boradband, and this is how i done it!
First of all connect your 3G modem to your laptop/pc as you normaly would. Now get an ethernet cable and plug this into your laptops ethernet port and then into the back of your xbox's ethernet port.
Click on start> connect to> Then you will see "open network and sharing center" Click that. In the next window you will find all networks connected to your laptop/pc. You will see one below your normal internet connection called unidentified network. Click "view staus" Now in this window click and go to properties. now in this window click on the network tab at the top of the window. While now in this window click on enable network sharing via this device. Now go to your xbox360 and try to connect to Xbox live if at the first atempt it did not work test your connection via xbox as it will ask you to do this anyways. You should now be eable to connect to xbox live using your 3G modem.
look man that is so easyjust go http://www.connectify.me/download-lite/ download connectify and install it it will mak your computer a hot spot like a wirless adapter choose in the internet sharing center your board band and name your network and set password then click on start my hotspot your mobile phone will detect it. connect to it normally. that will work on any thing. thanks
The bars on your laptop or iPhone means that you are connected to the router! Not necessarily to internet. Your internet depends on ISP Internet service provider and modem which connected to your router. To check if you have active internet connection connect your laptop directly to modem provided by your ISP with ethernet cable and try to open a internet browser IE or Safari or Chrome or Firefox and open a webpage! If you are able to connect internet by this mean you have internet connection active. Now disconnect your lap top from modem and connect modem to your Linksys router using WAN port of LINKSYS! Its good to power off and power on (power cycle) once on modem and router to make it work!
If you have a Windows PC, you can connect the Xbox 360 to it with an
Ethernet cable and then plug the modem into the PC. Windows Internet
Connection Sharing then lets you share the mobile broadband connection
with the Xbox 360.
Unfortunately, the NAT settings for mobile broadband services are
controlled by the provider. This will affect your ability to connect to Xbox Live or play games with other people.
Any questions leave me a comment or testimonial. Hope this helps.
Have you checked your system preferences, network settings? You have to tell the mac to use airport or ethernet. It may be setup to use the hard wire and not airport. You should see a link to turn on airport in the upper right corner of your screen. I think you can turn airport on there.
Cable modems don't usually have this issue so I'll assume your on a DSL connection, 56K modem, or someother phone related variant. You were most likely setup for a connection through your Airport using local IP settings on each machine and when you moved the machine you reconfigured yourself with a DHCP address. There are two solutions. (1) Reconfigure every machine for DSL (2) Configure your airport for DSL and connect everything to it.
Unfortunately the process from one provider to another varies slightly. But for that reason I generally only recommend cable for multi-computer housholds sharing a web connection.
well imac G4's don't have built in airport (wireless internet) included as usual with apple its another item you must buy an airport extreme card then hook it up to an airport base station another item to buy via wireless internet then hook you airport extreme base station up to your modem via ethernet. whew ok now sync the airport base station to your imac using airport set up application then select your network and type your WEP password and viol internet in about 1 hour if your lucky hope this helped my fingers hurt now LOL.
If you face frequent drop outs confirm with your isp that it's not a problem with line...and also check the physical setup of broadband check if your router is connected to main socket of your house where telephone line enters in your house......
now when you face drop outs check on your hard wired comp whether you remain connected or not if no its a problem with line..
if no reconfig your bt router for wireless network change the channel of your wireless network either to 1 or 11...
or either there is one other way reset your router to default settings by pressing the pin at the back of your router..
and after that your router will start its default wireless network i.e a unsecure network..
try connecting to that network if still the same there are drop outs it's a problem with router....contact bt to config the router...
