How can you set up a DHCP for OSX such that you can access your Macbook's shared network by iPod Touch?

I have enabled internet sharing in OSX settings such that you I access the sharing by iPod. However, I do not get the internet.

I have in Network settings > TCP/IP > Configure IPv4: Using DHCP.

I run the network with Using DHCP with manual address unsuccessfully. I used my real ip-address in the airport setting.

Open System Preferences

Click 'Internet Sharing'

Select the connection on your computer that you want to share (in my case the Ethernet)

Select the checkbox next to Internet Sharing to enable Internet sharing
