Has anyone gotten Kindle to connect over wifi with a Mac set up with 'Internet Sharing'? I've tried setting it up, and my iPod Touch can get on the internet this way, but Kindle gives this error:
Unable to Connect to Wi-Fi Network
Local network connection failed.
Your Kindle is unable to connect to the Wi-Fi
network "TomNet". Would you like to enter the
password again or manually set up this network?
cancel | set up network | enter password again
I've tried with encryption set to none, WEP-40, and WEP-128, without success. 'Channel' is set to 'Automatic'. (OS X 10.6.5)
It's also possible to set up a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network with the Mac, but the Kindle error is different (and expected):
Unsupported Wi-Fi network
Enterprise or peer-to-peer Wi-Fi
networks are not supported. Try
connecting to another network.
My interest is mostly theoretical, as I normally connect using my Wi-Fi router, but it would be useful when my laptop has an ethernet connection and there's no Wi-Fi for the Kindle.
On another forum, a user reported that it had been working for him but that now it does not. So I'm fishing for ideas.
