I assume this is sharing an Ethernet connection to Computers using Airport?

Yes, we have a DSL connection to the Ethernet on our main computer, and have Internet Sharing on so we can share the Internet connection on our laptops in the office. It works great for me, but I set it up, and now I can't remember what the password is (my Macbook connects automatically) so I can help other people in the office use their laptops with it.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

I have another question. On my MacBook, when I click on the Network control panel in System Preferences, it immediately brings up a dialog that says, "Your network settings have been changed by another application." When I click OK, it immediately does this again. This continues infinitely. Do you have any suggestions?

Try this cure for Security update...
The locations are actually...
