    Can a Mac with a a Smart Bro usb device share its internet via wifi? USB is not an option on "Share From".

    Yep, just go to sys pref, sharing and then check internet sharing and you're ready to go.

    If you want a more secure option, before checking internet sharing, click on airport options and add a password for it...

    Hi!

    I've done this using a Macbook Pro 2.4GHz model with a SMART Bro plug-it device. I chose the ZTEUSBModem from the drop down options of the "Share internet connection from:" menu.

    Although I can connect to the WiFi signal from my MBP, I can't get an internet signal.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I also tried this. My MBPro can share connection via Airport sharing. But there's no internet connection in the other devices.
