Share internet connections on a 192.168.x.x network
Authored by: digitol on Apr 04, '05 06:00:00PM

Interesting... I just did this for a freind last week... had one computer connected to the internet via a router hard-wired.. then turned on that computer's share internet via airport option.. to a wireless laptop, to which the IP address on the now internet connected laptop is 169.X.X.x ! So not sure what the authors hint is about.

the 169.X.X.X range is known as the "local link" address space. Most adapters default to this range when they cannot locate a DHCP server. Rendezvous also uses this range.
