    Windows mobile hotspot feature wont share connection via ethernet


    Microsoft Windows Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.720)

    Hello, this is my first post so I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but as described in the title, I can not share my internet connection via ethernet from my windows 10 pc when using the windows mobile hotspot feature. The reason I want to share my internet connection from my pc via ethernet connection instead of through my wifi is that my computer is far from the router and I would like a stronger internet signal for my phone when I'm near my computer. However, when choosing where to share my internet connection from, ethernet is not an option, and the name of my wifi is my only option.

    (Information that I am not sure is relevant)
    Additionally, I am able to connect my phone to my hotspot when choosing wifi, but at first I did have an issue where my phone could not obtain an IP address. I fixed this by going into network connections -> properties of wifi -> sharing -> and checked to allow other users to connect to my internet connection through Local Area Connection* 10. After doing this, my mobile hotspot worked and my phone could connect to my computer, albeit at a decent wifi speed. However, when attempting to do the same thing with my ethernet, for some reason my Local Area Connection* 10 does not appear, and the icon itself disappears from network connections when my wifi is turned off and when my computer is connected just through ethernet.

    Anyways I'm not sure if anyone will read this, or even be able to help, but any tips or advice you have will be much appreciated! Also feel free to ask for more information/attatchments or email me.
