I have an AlPB with AP.
PS I tried to search the forum for "personal file sharing" but the search feature seems to be down.
I found this thread as I am trying to figure out why my personal web sharing is always turned off after rebooting etc..
I have an iMac and I recently bought a dual 1.8 which is the machine I am having the problem with. The iMac doesn't lose the personal file sharing on reboot/boot etc..
According to Apple Support article 107367 Personal File Sharing Stops When Not Connected to Network
When I boot my G5, there is a period where I am not on my wireless home network. It takes a few seconds as the name of my network scrolls across the top of the screen where the Airport signal strength eventually displays. I wonder if this has something to do with the way Airport Extreme works? I have Linksys equipment in my pc's (including Linksys base station) and have never had a problem accessing my network from the Mac side - just a new delay that seems to disable personal file sharing each time as the OS sees I am not on a network. I continue to seek the reason or solution to this - it doesn't make sense that I have to enable pfs each time.
I would be curious if someone with the ABS has the same delay and whether pfs is disabled each time on boot etc.. The one thing different between my two Mac's is the Extreme version in the G5.
