How to ShareYour Computers WiFi with other Ethernet Enabled Devices

  Want to

  extend your computers WiFi Internet to another device via

  ethernet cable? We have the solution! This works to connect

  up X-Box, PS3, and other devices like WiFi Radios.

  Microsoft has a functionality called Internet Connection

  Sharing (ICS) that is made just for this purpose. If the

  solution below does not answer your question then do some

  Googling on “ICS”, there is a ton more info out there on

  this topic.

  We will be using Windows 7, but earlier versions are

  similar. Be sure your Windows 7 computer is already

  connected to the Internet via wireless before you start.



  CC WiFi Radio connected to a Window 7 Laptop

  Click the Windows icon and type “view

  network connections”, then hit “Enter” on your keyboard.


  Right-click on the icon that

  represents your wireless connection to the internet,

  then left-click on “Properties”


  Go to the “Sharing” tab and check the

  top box, then choose “Local Area Connection” from the

  drop down below. No need to check the second box. Just

  press “OK” at the bottom of the screen.


  When everything is ready to go you

  will see the word “Shared” under your wireless

  connection to the Internet. Its sharing with your

  computers ethernet port (also called “Local Area

  Connection” on this screen).

  Now you can connect an ethernet cable to your computers

  ethernet port and share internet to a second device.

  Note: To return normal ethernet port functionality to

  your computer, just repeat the above and uncheck the top

  box, then press “OK”
