I am connected to internet via ethernet cable on my MBP laptop. I want to have access to internet wirelessly on my iPad as well. How can I config my MBP (OSX 10.6.8) to act as an "Access Point" ?
I already tried the internet sharing via system preferences. I could connect to my shared network on my iPad, but the problem is my ISP does now allow network sharing! On my iPad it shows the following error message:
"We have detected that you are using a router or a device that is performing network connection sharing. Sharing a connection with multiple devices is against out term of use."..."You can use a router on our network, however it must be configures to act as an access point." Then it mentions that I should turn off DHCP in the router settings.
I am in a student residence and do not have access to the ISP's support staff. The description of the my internet connection contract says that I have right to use two devices manually. There is one ethernet socket in the room.
How can I get internet in my iPad?
