I wonder if anyone else has tried this?
My studio is too far away from the WiFI in my house to be connectable, so I use Ethernet to connect to the modem router, and also have a LAN going so I can connect my laptop in the house to the studio Mac.
The studio Mac has an Airport Extreme card in it, and lately I wanted to use it to set up a WiFI LAN in the studio for connection for iphone, and, especially, iPad, running control surface apps (AC7 etc)
So far so good, I create a network on the Mac using Airprt Extreme, enable Internet sharing and have no bother getting the LAN working on iPhone and iPad.
the only problem is, the newly created network keeps disappearing. Often it’s not there the next day when I re-start the Mac (but sometimes it IS there) and sometimes it randomly disappears during the day, maybe after the Mac sleeps. It seems completely inconsistent.
Anyone know why this is happening? Is there any way to get the Mac to automatically re-create it after sleep or shutdown?
