Anyone else experiencing this?


Just installed ML on my iMac. I have been sharing ethernet Internet to WiFi for many years through this machine. When ML was installed, it was gone, broken. I have tried everything from changing main Network Profile, changing name of the Internet Sharing Network, changing the channel, secure and unsecure, and of course restarting all devices multiple times.


I have the icon with the arrow telling me that the network is enabled, and I *have* managed to connect sporadically, but only for a short period of time and never for more than 2 units at a time. This is completely random. 99% of the time, I get the error messages (loosely translated I am afraid…)


  • "Could not connect to network …"
  • "Connection timed out"


  1. Please tell if you have a fix and
  2. Please Tell Apple throught their feedback system if you don't.
iMac, OS X Mountain Lion
