Sharing Freedome from Windows laptop

I am using a Windows 7 laptop (wired to the wall jack) as a wifi hotspot to allow my smart TV to connect to the internet.  When I start Freedome, the TV loses its internet connection; the laptop doesn't.

 

There are a couple of old questions that suggest that in 2014 Freedome did not allow shared connections.  Is that still the case?

    Hello DWIII, 

     

    Tethering is still not supported with Freedome. There is no current plan to support it in the future.

    According to this post you are looking at it..?

    Why will you not support it? If you use your laptop this is a needed feature to be able to surf with your 3G/4G data subscription. More and more of the laptop builders do not build in simcard functionality in their laptops anymore...

    Hi

    There's definitely a need for tethering. I work in field and use my mobile phone to provide wireless for customer PC's. I don't need application to provide me VPN, I just need internet for laptops, while my mobile phone browsing is secured at the same time. Why you cannot configure a "detour" for mobile access point connections.

    if I stop freedome, the whole idea to be untrackable will collapse
