    Hi

    I have my Mac connect to my WiFi and I want to share that via Ethernet to my PC. I have the sharing settings setup, however my PC (running Windows 7) says that the its an 'Unidentified network' and gets no internet connection.

    Any help?

    Thanks.

    Ok, so your sharing settings are like in the pic I attached :confused:

    If yes and it still says unindentified network it could be IP settings on your PC that are off ( set a static IP etc.). Make sure that it has a dynamic IP assigned by the DHCP from your Mac.

    Check your IP setting on your PC by pressing ' 'Windows' + R' and then type in 'CMD'. That will open the Terminal.
    In the Terminal you will write 'ipconfig'. That will give you the
    IPv4 / IPv6 / Default gateway / Subnet mask and more information.
    Make sure all the settings are looking good.

    Maybe you can post a screenshot of the 'ipconfig' output and a pic of the specific network settings from your Mac. :D
