I would like to start off by saying that this might not belong here. This is the only StackExchange site I found relating to networking, but if it is a problem please let me know and I will delete it.
Problem: Older lady next door just asked me if I would come over and set Netflix up on her TV. She has a Verizon USB for her Wireless plugged into her laptop. She has some type of "Netflix ready" box, but it only accepts an Ethernet for sharing the internet with it.
I ran an ethernet cord from her laptop (running Windows Vista) to the Netflix box, but obviously it didn't share the connection without some changes. Is there any way to do this?
She said she has never seen a modem or router in the house, and I couldn't find one after searching all of her rooms, so I have no idea where that is. So running the ethernet from the router isn't really an option since I can't find it.
