I have always used internet sharing (from LAN to Android Smartphone) on my Macbook pro 10.7 and it worked fine.


Recently i have switched to use a Macbook air 10.6, there is no RJ45 slot so i bought a USB-Ethernet adapter (model :KY-RD9700) to get Internet. From then on internet sharing doesn't work any more with my phone. The computer configuration seems normal, but when I typed in my internet sharing password, the phone seems to try to be connecting to the shared network, but stops proceeding at "Obtaining IP address...." and finally fails to connect.


I am aware that the USB LAN adapter has a built-in modem (as the shop keeper told me) and Macbook air also has a built in modem. I dont know if this is related to the said problem.


Does anyone has a similar problem, and does anyone have a solution?


A million thanks!

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
