Currently I am using a mobile internet connection using an USB cable. How do I share this connection with my peer who only has a wireless card on his macbook?

So far what I have tried: Internet Connection Sharing Over Wifi With Fedora, but I'm unsure as to how to validate that it is working.

What is your system? What is your OS (I'm guessing Fedora)? What dou you mean by "validate it is working"? –  Psirus Feb 8 '12 at 13:26
    
"I'm unsure as to how to validate that it is working." - unless you've actually tried to get your friend's Mac or another device to see the WiFi network I doubt we can help much until then. –  Kev Feb 8 '12 at 19:03
    
@Psirus : yes running Fedora 16 x64, i mean how to know if the wireless sharing is running? when i do iwconfig wlan0 the mode is Managed, does that mean my wireless card doesn't support Internet Sharing? –  d4v1dv00 Feb 9 '12 at 10:38
    
@Kev: I tried using the other Mac and open up AirPort and doesn't see the name of the Ad-hoc network within range. –  d4v1dv00 Feb 9 '12 at 10:39
    
when i do iwconfig wlan0 the mode is Managed, does that mean my wireless card doesn't support Internet Sharing? Well, maybe. That is why I originally asked for your system specs. –  Psirus Feb 9 '12 at 10:46
