Set up software base station first, yes
Authored by: Jaharmi on Nov 09, '02 07:44:53AM

If you set up your AirPort software base station settings to your liking first, then any time you run the InternetSharing application, you'll get those same settings.

You don't need to put InternetSharing in its own StartupItem; I've had it in my custom firewall config file for several weeks. (I start all the other sharing features there, but found that InternetSharing enabled a software base station that seems to run in infrastructure rather than ad hoc mode -- it makes all the difference when I'm connecting via my Cisco Aironet 350 card on a Lombard PowerBook.)
