I need to have internet on my ubuntu / mint desktop. The only way I can get online right now is wifi and I couldn't get the USB Netgear WNA3100 to work because without internet packages won't install for me to get the driver.
I need my ubuntu / mint desktop to access the internet through an ethernet cable to my laptop running windows 8.1 so it can get online. I'm not able to hook up to a router modem at all since its on the other side of the house.
[ ubuntu [ ethernet ] -- -- -- -- [ win 8.1 [ wifi ] = [ ubuntu [ ethernet access from windows wifi ]
How can I make this work because it desperately desperately absolutely needs to be and has to get online. I can not afford to wait one week.
