The idea is to connect our Mac to the Internet via ethernet cable and turn it into a “WiFi sender” . And in this way share the internet with any device with WiFi access.

The interesting thing about this is that while “you share the internet” from the Mac, you can also use it normally.

1- After connecting our Mac to the Internet via ethernet cable, we must go to “System Preferences” and then to “Sharing” .

2- On the left we will see, among other options, “Internet Sharing” .
