    I was wondering. Is there a way to share my WIFI connection on my Mac with the other devices I have ?

    A sort of WIFI repeater if you like. Or a personal hotspot that transfers the requests over the hotel WIFI I'm connected to.

    Not as far as I know. You can't use the internal wifi to both send and receive. I know that if you have ethernet, you can share, so I would theorize that you need an additional wifi card to make that work.

    I am using a wireless broadband device to share my internet connection over wifi. that's fine. but is there a way to check the IDs of users connected to the wifi I am sharing? like through Terminal?

    I think that depends on the device you're using. I have a similar device as yours, and I can access the log by typing the device's IP address.

    Try checking your device's manual.
