Hi All,

I know it's possible to hotspot, but what I want to do, is connect a PC to SP3 via usual ethernet connectivity (I have an adapter for such), but then access the internet via SP3's WiFi connectivity via WiFi router. Is this possible? Thanks.

@MSG ,

What you need is an Ethernet Crossover Cable. Connect the two computers with it. As long as the two PCs are in the same Workgroup, the internet connection will be shared.

A Crossover Cable is cheap, and is usually colored yellow, orange, or red, to distinguish it from regular cables.
