1.  Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Sharing.
2.  Select Internet Sharing.
3.  Choose a network service from the Share your connection from pop-up menu, Ethernet for example.
4.  Select a networking service to share your Internet connection from the To computers using list, AirPort for example.

If you share your Internet connection using AirPort, click AirPort Options and give your network a name and password.
