   Using internal Atheros 802.11 NIC to share connection from laptop with
   ATT 3G USB modem.  Internet is connected to first laptop via 3G modem.
   First laptop WIFI is access point for second laptop.

   I have tried infrastructure & ad-hoc.

So does not work w/o encryption selected & only if WEP selected?  Will try that way next.
