    BTW, I meant MAC AirPort.

    Are there any experienced Mac people out there? I am beyond frustrated at this point. I've set up my Air Port on my Mac OS to share the connection with my Next2 (i.e. my rip-off product) and the tablet scans, connects and then drops the connection.

    DO I need to tweak the settings on the mac?

    This is what I have done.

    ----> system preferences
    -----> Internet Sharing
    ------> Share connection using Ethernet
    -------> To computers using Air Port


    ----> Air Port options- I've secured the connection by enabling encryption WEP. I've tried both a 40-bit WEP key legnth AND 128-bit. I've left the network open. Neither worked. Can I use any character combination as a WEP password? Do I need to add $ at the beginning or anything Mac-y that I, being Mac illiterate to a point, don't know about?

    I then wondered if I needed to enable Bonjour and "advertise" the Air POrt domain. NOTHING.

    How do I do this? There has to be a way?

    Is it the Mac or my tablet?

    Please help me before I completely lose my mind.

    Thank you so much,

    I selected "automatic for the channel.

    Have you tried connecting the tablet to another wep connection. I know that the zt-180 had to have a certain rom before it could connect to wep. Or can you change your router to wpa2 and try it
