I am endeavoring to use the MacBook Pro to broadcast its Ethernet Internet connection as WiFi, in order to access this connection through my iPhone.
I have made the following configurations:
I have configured the Internet sharing network to employ WEP pass phrases et al.
In my Network Preferences, I have configured the Wifi to have a manually configured IPv4 Protocol with 192.168.1.1 being the Router, a DNS name server, a class C Subnet mask.
In my iPhone device, I have configured it as a Static IP configuration for the Wifi, with 10.1.1.1 being the MBP's IP and 10.1.1.2 being the iPhone's IP, with a class C Subnet Mask with a DNS name server, 10.1.1.1. being the router and local.lan for the Search Domains field.
The issue is: There is no Internet connectivity in the iPhone device. The device reports "Check if you have Internet Connectivity and try again"
iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1
MacBook Pro with Lion 10.7.4
Any insights into how this can be resolved?
