How to share a hotel room’s internet connection over Wi-Fi


For years, many hotels around the world have offered high-speed internet access to guests in their rooms by way of a wired connection, whether it be a standard network port in the wall or a cable popping out of the desk. Nowadays, wireless network is the default option but we’re often charged to use it. Since many hotels still provide the wired connection option as for free, in this guide I’ll explain two methods of sharing this wired connection, allowing you to avoid any expensive Wi-Fi costs.

My latest tutorial over at Mactuts+ explains how you can share a wired internet connection, usually available for free in my hotels, over Wi-Fi via an AirPort Express or Mac OS X’s Internet Sharing without having to pay any additional costs.
