There may be situation when your router or modem doesn’t support Wi-Fi and you are having only one LAN cable but want to use internet on many systems. Well don’t worry. You can still use internet on several systems by creating an Adhoc Network.
An Adhoc network is also known as Computer to Computer network. Basically it is used for connecting many computers with each other.

8). Finally it will say that your network is ready to use. Click close and you are done. You can see your network status from network icon on taskbar.
9). There is still one more thing you need to configure before using the internet on several systems.
10). Once again go to your network connections and click Change Adapter Settings. Select both Local Area Connection and Wireless Network Connection simultaneously. Right click with your mouse and select Bridge Connections.
