Having just recently discovered how easy it is to share a wifi connection via Ethernet, I wondered whether I could plug in another wifi USB stick and get another "WLAN" entry on this screen (my apologies it's in German)

which would allow me to select it in the dropdown on the left here:

Unfortunately I was not succesful with the USB wifi stick I had at hand (it is capable of creating a hosted network - at least on Windows and on my Raspberry).

What do I have to do what I want to achieve with OS capabilities preferably?


It turned out the wifi dongle was not fully compatible/supported by Mac OS. For instance with this dongle it works as expected after installing the drivers.
