Usually when it comes down to sharing an internet connection, it’s your phone or tablet that does the heavy lifting. But there are times when your PC could end up being the device of choice. The most common way Sharing one’s internet connection with several devices boils down to turning one of your devices into a mobile hotspot so that all your gadgets can get on the internet when a router isn’t available.
Sharing your PC’s internet connection is easy in Windows 10. The feature allows up to eight devices to get online simultaneously. Here’s how I did it using a PC running the Creators Update.

  • First, you can tap on the interenet connection button on the far right hand corner of your taskbar. a pull up appears where you can select a tile with the caption Mobile Hotpots. Click the corresponding tile and you are good to go.
  • The second, is to start with the settings section in your computer. This is a more secure and less problematic method. All you have to do is to Open the Settings app (click Start and choose the settings cog icon in the lower-left corner), and go to Network & Internet > Mobile hotspot.

On this screen , there is an on/off button at the top to activate the mobile hotspot feature. Below that is a drop-down menu labeled Share my Internet Connection from. With the help of this button, you can now choose which internet connection you wish to use. You could choose whichever you prefer ranging form a Wi-Fi and ethernet connection, for example.

Below that setting is the all-important network name, which is the router name everyone will see when they search for nearby Wi-Fi connections. Next is the password. Windows automatically generates a network name and password. If you’d like to change either or both of these options click the Edit button.
