Internet via ethernet, switch and another pc wifi

General Tech Bugs & Fixes

I have two pc. One has Internet via WiFi and the other one has not the WiFi board, only ethernet.

If I install a dhcp server in the one with the WiFi and then connect both to a switch, would I be able to use Internet with the one that has the lan only?

The one with WiFi ha Windows, the other Linux.

Can the firewall be a problem right?

No switch is required (but can be used).

Windows has native ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) that should do exactly what you're looking for.

According to this answer for Windows 10, here are the steps:

  1. Press Windows key + X to open the Power User menu and select Network Connections.

  2. Right-click the network adapter with an Internet connection (Ethernet or wireless network adapter), then select Properties.

  3. Click Sharing.

  4. Put a check mark on Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection.

  5. From the Home networking connection drop-down menu, select the Microsoft Hosted Virtual Adapter.

  6. Click OK to finish.

Now all it needs is a cross pair Ethernet cable if connected directly. If connected via a network switch it shouldn't matter.

No additional DHCP server required.
