Connecting to internet via Mac with internet sharing


I'm currently visiting family in Oz. They have internet access but as
they only have one machine
it's plugged directly in the 1 port DSL box which seems to have
assigned a full inet IP (211.30.x.x).
I had hopped to turn the Mac into an access point connecting my fedora
netbook to it's AirPort.

The Airport is otherwise unused/un-configured. When I turn on
"Internet Sharing" it gives itself the
IP I've tried this with WEP enabled and disabled. According
to ifconfig on the Mac the
interface is Active.

On the Fedora side I've tried just connecting with DHCP and with
manual configuration of IP but it
doesn't seem to get passed the wireless configuration. The log goes

wlan0: scanning-> associating
wlan0: link timed out
Activation (wlan0/wireless): association took too long, failing activation
wlan0: device state change 5->9

Has anyone succeeded in getting this sort of setup to work? I'm
wondering if it only supports
Mac to Mac sharing by doing something special and secret?
