[maemo-users] new n800 user problem connecting

i think before he can get connection, he might not be able to even install

most of my guess will go for the MacBook handling the Internet sharing. Also
both unit must set their wifi to Ad Hoc mode, at least that setting works
for my n800+thinkpad+ubuntu setup.

all the best!
