Thanks for your suggestion. This is really helpful for me. I was totally ignorant about this issue. I didn't update my Mac OS regularly. Will do it now.

Dear Nooralam,

A very small but useful suggestion for you. If you face any problem in relation with connectivity of your WIFI in you Mac mini then, turn your airport Off and then again turn On.  If that doesn't work, then restart your computer. Cheers.

HI Nooralam,

To setup Wireless Access Point, first of all you need WiFi connection and be sure you are connected in Network. It's a very simple process.

For leopard:

Go to System Preferences, then sharing, then Checkmark Internet Sharing and choose share my connection from built in Ethernet to computers using airport.

For Tiger:

Go to System Preferences, then Sharing, then Internet Tab and choose share my connection from built in Ethernet to computers using airport. Thanks
