Right so this is my situation here, I have a router, and several machines, but now there is a new machine which needs to connect to the network at the same time as them. My router is not a Wireless one so only Ethernet connections are available. And to connect the new machine to the network, one of the other machines needs to be disconnected as there just aren't enough ports in the router to plug the cables into.
So I was wondering if there is any way to do some sort of internet sharing so that I connect the machine to my machine and it shares some of my internet? Although I want it to be a direct tunnel to the router, and just using my machine as a relay, so that if the machine gets infected with something it can't do anything to me computer which it will be connecting through.
Both my machine and the new machine are running Ubuntu 15.04.
Both machines also posses wireless capabilities, so would it be possible, if using only wires is harder, to connect our machines together through a wireless connection, and then use my Ethernet connection for the actual internet connection?
