Wifi with Droid 2 and Mac Mini
Sooo hi guys, I'm new to the forums because I just bought a Droid 2 (Milestone 2 as known here in Brazil). It came with Android 2.2.
I have a Mac Mini, and it has an Airport Extreme card built in. Now I never had a notebook or need to use WiFi, so I'm a noob in this area.
I try to create a new network, the Droid 2 will recognize it but just won't connect, and the Airport connection in Network preferences just shows that Airport has a 'self assigned IP address and won't connect to the internet' (and yes I'm connected to the net wtith my mac via Ethernet - cable modem).
Could anyone explain to me or refer me to a guide on how do I use my Mac Mini so that my phone uses its Wifi instead of using the expensive 3G connection when I'm at home?
Thanks a lot and sorry for the newbish Q.
