In this Quick Tip, learn how to start your own Wi-Fi hotspot on a Mac if you have a wired Ethernet connection.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Has this ever happen to you? >> Hey, what's the Wi-Fi password here? >> There is none. It's just wired. >> Wait, you don't have wireless Internet here? >> That's what I said, no. >> Why you little... >> I'm Wilson Tang and if you're on the Mac there was an easy way to share an Internet connection over Wi-Fi. First, plug in your Ethernet connection. Second, go to system preferences and select sharing. Select Internet sharing. Where it says share your connection from, select your built-in Ethernet. Then where it says two computers using, select AirPort. You're done. Now you can always change the name of your Wi-Fi network or even enable basic WEP wireless security, but that does it for me today. I'm Wilson Tang and this has been a Quick Tip. ^M00:00:50 [ Music ]
