This question already has an answer here:

I want to share my internet connection(ethernet) to my iPhone, but the network is protected by 802.1x so that I cannot do so. I have already know that I can share the internet connection with my phone using a VPN, but unfortunately the ISP blocks all VPN connections. Is there another way to achieve my target?

OS X 10.10 with iOS 8.4

Thank you!

Share your internet connection via WiFi

This worked for me in a similar situation. Shamelessly copied from apple support site, link below.

You can share your Internet connection with other users on your local network.

  1. Open Sharing preferences if it isn’t already open (choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Sharing).

  2. Select the Internet Sharing checkbox.

  3. Click the “Share your connection from” pop-up menu, then choose the Internet connection you want to share. For example, if you’re connected to the Internet over Ethernet, choose Ethernet.

  4. Select how you want to share your Internet connection in the “To computers using” list. For example, if you want to share your Internet connection over Wi-Fi, select Wi-Fi.

  5. If you share your Internet connection using Wi-Fi, deselect the Internet Sharing checkbox, click Wi-Fi Options, give your network a name and password, then select the Internet Sharing checkbox again.

If your Internet connection and your local network use the same port (Ethernet, for example), investigate possible side effects before you turn on Internet sharing. In some cases, sharing your Internet connection disrupts the network. If you use a cable modem, for example, you might unintentionally affect the network settings of other ISP customers, and your ISP might terminate your service.

  • But after starting the sharing, there is a pop-up indicating that the network is protected by 802.1x and is therefore unable to be shared. – Alex Wu Sep 18 '15 at 22:39
