I have an iMac, that has Internet access via Ethernet cable (no Wi-Fi).

I know that my iMac has a Wi-Fi access point.

How can I share the iMac's Internet connection with an iPad?

1 Answer 1


System Preferences -> Sharing -> Internet Sharing

Share your connection from ethernet -> to computers using: Wi-Fi

In Wi-Fi options you can select a WEP password encryption for your network.
