Share Your Computer’s WiFi Internet Connection with Other Ethernet Devices

Do you have certain devices around the house or in the office that can’t connect directly to the Internet through a WiFi connection? Some smart TVs, media players, (older) game consoles are just a few examples of devices that need a wired Ethernet connection to the Internet.

Naturally, if you’ve got your home or office wired from a router to each device’s location, then it’s simple to plug the Ethernet cable in. But, as experience shows, it’s more convenient to connect those devices to the Internet from a laptop right on the spot. So, you need a way to share WiFi over Ethernet, so that your smart TV or media device can use that connection to access the Internet.
