Create a wireless network bridge
Authored by: ekerkhoff on Apr 01, '03 05:05:39AM

I could be wrong, but I don't think it is possible to create a software base station by using the sharing feature under the sharing preference panel. I know that the above solution does work, but I do not think it does in reverse (a.k.a software wireless base station).

I've tried numerous ways to create a software base station (using mac os 10.2.4 and the supplied gui features) and have been unsuccessful on each attempt. Additionally, there is not any documentation to support the existence of its possibilities.

It is quite possible that I am wrong, but has anyone been successful on creating a software base station without using third party software or doing some tweaking from the command line?

If I am wrong, I appologize, but if I am correct, I think it might be best to remove the reference of software base station (for solution accuracy purposes).

From the looks of it, the feature I am speaking of might be available very soon.
