This evening I’m staying at a hotel where wireless Internet (wifi) is not available in my room, but a free wired Internet connection IS provided. These are the steps I followed to create a temporary, “ad-hoc” wireless network (a wifi hotspot) using my Apple laptop.

Step 1: Connect to wired ethernet

Step 2: Click SHARING in System Preferences

Step 3: Setup Internet Sharing from Ethernet to Airport (WiFi)

Step 4: WiFi hotspot options

Step 5: Turn ON Internet Sharing

After following these steps, I was able to connect my iPad to the “new” wifi network I created, and access the Internet wirelessly.

Join your new network from your iPad

I love Macs. 🙂
