    Hey there! I dunno if this is the right forum, but I use a MBP, plus, I couldn't find a more fitting category.
    Anyways, I'm gonna try and set my PC up to my monitor tonight, but my PC uses Ethernet to connect to the internet. My MBP on the other hand, connects to the router via WiFi. So, I wondered, would it be possible to hook my PC up to my MBP, to provide internet access? I mean, I can use my MBP as a wireless router, so why not as a wired router? :)

    Thanks for taking your time to read this! :D

    System Preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing > Share your connection from AirPort to Ethernet.

    Switch that on, connect up to the PC and away you go.
