[Bug 977251] Re: "Edit a wireless connection" section is missing "Shared to other computers" option


I think I have a basic understanding of what the "Shared to other
computers" option does. If the option is set, can more than one "client"
computer use the connection at the same time? If someone gives me the
answer I plan to add the information to the help.
