Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2007 3:48 PM (in response to Governa)Very similar case here -- I bought an iPhone just yesterday, set it up with internet sharing on my Mac Mini, and am getting random (but frequent) failures connecting via wifi. Small web pages can get through sometimes, large (or complex) web pages almost always hang during loading, e-mail pretty much never works.
However, using "edge" works just fine.
I've nosed around these forums a bit (and googled for this problem a bit), and it does seem like there are a number of users having this sort of trouble. However, some folks with this problem have noted that they can run wifi just fine at other hotspots. (I haven't taken my phone to another hotspot yet, maybe I'll try tomorrow...) And I've shared my internet connection to other PCs from my Mini successfully before. So, in my opinion, this problem does not appear to be an actual hardware fault in either the iPhone or the Mac Mini, but rather some disagreement between the settings chosen on both sides; my guess is that this'll take a driver modification in either or both to fix, rather than a replacement of either the iPhone or the Mini.
Just my current guess, though.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2008 11:49 AM (in response to John Pietrzak)Wish i had a solution for this as well... Just wanted to pipe up and say that this is exactly the same problem i am having here. I also have a mac mini and suspect that must be part of the problem as i have no issues connecting anywhere else. i have tried absolutely everything and am kind of surprised that to mac products would have such difficulty communicating with each other.Mac mini
Currently Being ModeratedJan 23, 2008 11:03 PM (in response to Governa)Hi,
this topic is discussed in detail here.
I already opened a apple care support case on this problem
They are working on the problem. It is a software Problem as it only happens with 10.5.1. I had it working with 10.5.0.
It is very likely that it will be fixed in 10.5.2 (as it seems to be working in the developer beta)

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 11, 2008 3:57 PM (in response to somi)I can confirm 10.5.2 fixed it.
