My Mac lost ethernet connection yesterday briefly whilst Internet Sharing was running.
I rebooted. Internet Sharing wasn't accepting connections at all.
I deleted the relevant files in:
I rebooted. This cleared out all the settings for Internet Sharing.
As default, there is no Internet Sharing security set.
I turned Internet Sharing back on, no security. Now any Wi-Fi client sees my network is set with no security: iPhone doesn't show padlock. But the client asks for a password.
The way it asks for a password on the iPhone differs from how it would if it knew my Wi-Fi network is password protected. This request for a password is abnormal.
Can someone tell me how to resolve this. There is no password set on the Wi-Fi Internet Sharing but clients ask for one?
