Hello there 

I'm new to the forum. I have a problem with my ethernet connection. As my Wifi adapter  on the PC sucks and i experience massive rubberbanding while playing video games i decided to connect my laptop to my desktop via ethernet cable and then make a bridge. So that basically my laptop gives it's wifi connection to my PC (as that Wifi adapter works way better)
Sometimes it tells me "unidentified" network and sometimes it doesn't i just don't get it it seems so random. i already checked if that internet protocol 4 thing is on and it is. i also did some sort of resett via command prompt. i restarted the router several times and both windows systems. 
Any ideas?

by using your laptop you added a hop/latency to the internet.  you would be ahead of the game getting a good wifi card/usb for the pc and making a direct connection.
