Share the internet connection on Mac with other network users
You can share the internet connection on your Mac with other users on your local network.
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Sharing, then select Internet Sharing.
Click the “Share your connection from” pop-up menu, then choose the internet connection you want to share. For example, if you’re connected to the internet over Ethernet, choose Ethernet.
Select how you want to share your internet connection in the “To computers using” list. For example, if you want to share your internet connection over Wi-Fi, select Wi-Fi.
If you share your internet connection using Wi-Fi, click Wi-Fi Options, give your network a name, click the Security pop-up menu and choose WPA2 Personal, enter a password, then click OK.
Select the Internet Sharing checkbox.
WARNING: If your internet connection and your local network use the same port (Ethernet, for example), investigate possible side effects before you turn on internet sharing. In some cases, sharing your internet connection disrupts the network. If you use a cable modem, for example, you might unintentionally affect the network settings of other ISP customers, and your ISP might terminate your service.
