Forum Question: iMac/i7 Internet Sharing to Android Phone

Does anyone have a problem with connecting their mobile phone regarding the password dropping after adding the CORRECT password?
I was using a Belkin router, but it died and waiting for my replacement. As I am waiting for my replacement, I am using the Internet Sharing under Sharing prefs. It is working and my MacPro and iPod Touch recognize my internet from my iMac/i7. However, when my friend came over with her mobile phone (I think it’s Android), it can see my iMac’s network name… When I gave her my password, it acted it was going to connect, but it dropped.
Any suggestion? I’m using the WEP 40 bits.

    Try switching to WPA2 instead of WEP. I’ll bet her phone doesn’t support WEP in some way.
    Internet Sharing from an iMac works, but it is much weaker than a regular connection, I find.
