Nintendo wifi + mac airport internet sharing help

    OK so I need some help getting this set up. Since I cannot get my DS lite connected at home this summer (as opposed to at college), I recently found out that you can share an ethernet connection from my macbook pro via airport. Ive tried to set this up and the network was there for a little while, but when I tried to connect I got an error message where apparently I couldnt get an IP address. the nintendo support site wasnt very helpful. and when I tried network sharing again it wouldnt set up properly. Has anyone managed to connect their DS this way?

    wait, you can connect your DS to wi-fi using Mac AirPort? this is news to me. But wouldnt you already need a wi-fi connection in order to do this? Im afraid i dont understand.

    macs are capable of sharing an internet connection through wifi, but you need an alternate internet source (ie ethernet). instead of receiving a network, you send out one basically

    I dont understand how that works but ok. I dont need it anyway, I have a compatable wireless connection. Its just interesting that you could do that if you wanted/needed to.

    yea I could connect my DS on my colleges network but not at home. so Im going to try this so I can keep up my dreamworld, GTS and stuff until late august when I go back because it seems to be the best thing to try that doesnt involve buying something. I found out I have to use terminal to find the IP address. Ill let yall know if it works
