How to connect a Cisco IP Phone to the internet through my laptop? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I apologize if this question isn't posted in the correct forum. I initially asked this on Microsoft Questions and was told to instead ask it on TechNet.

    I have a Cisco 7960 IP Phone and I was wondering if it is possible to change the settings on my laptop's ethernet port settings to allow me to connect my IP phone (or anything) to my laptop and connect to the internet (My laptop is connected to the internet via Wifi, my IP phone does not have this option). Usually I use the ethernet port on my laptop to connect my laptop to the internet, but I have never attempted to use it for connecting another device to my laptop for internet use on that device.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
