there seem to be a few issues. I am having huge issues with Internet Sharing on 10.7.4. It used to work perfect, but now is stuttering and spluttering like a lost little cub. ffs!

... And remember, a Backup you havn't tested may be no backup at all :-)

I see you started a thread here:

Something you forgot to mention is to also make sure
that you have a clean, well functioning system before
applying any update. Systems with problems functioning
properly will more than likely cause issues with updating
and my get worse after updating, unless the issue is one
addressed by the update.

So true, except for one thing, you can't determine the nature of a dirty system without first backing up. If issues compound themselves after an update, reverting to your backup should always be your first option, and then examining the system for issues on your system is the next one, while always keeping at least a backup handy, preferably two. That way, if the system is problematic, you have a chance to isolate it without impacting your critical data.

I'm also having Internet Sharing problems, just as you've described. It worked perfectly this morning, now that I've applied the update, it's not working at all.

Never update anything until you have done the following.
1) Backup your computer completely (this will allow you to go back).
2) Research the update. Find out why it has been released and the bugs it is supposed to fix.
Updates are not always improvements. Sometimes features and capabilities get removed or new bugs are created.
My general advice is, if your system is working, don't update anything.
Also with some updates it is impossible or difficult to go backwards (iPhone). Never apply these updates until forced to do so.

Well Umma has gone to great lengths to find from Apple there is some issue with Internet Sharing. Hopefully Apple releases a patch soon. I recommend if you are having the problem to contact Apple and let them know it is happening, and get a case number.

I know that apple have released a rubbish version of mac that has problemos with internet sharing
so here is da answer
1. go to finder>(computer name)>macintosh HD>library>preferences
2. copy the entire systemconfiguration folder and systemconfiguration.old folder to your desktop
3. restart mac and device which you share intenet to
then you have internet that is about 3x slower than the da 10.7.3 intenet sharing, but works
then, just wait for apple to release da 10.7.4 fixed
please use da steps!
