I have got an old pc. WIFI drivers did not work so I got an idea to use my opi one to share the wireless via ethernet. This worked using my laptop, but with pi I cannot do it. The WIFI is super slow if you want to do something on pi for example browsing the internet. I use rtl8192 and armbian if this is important. The main problem is internet connection on pc is detected, but I got timeout while going to a webpage. Is this problem caused by the slow connection from pi or it is something different? What can I do to fix it?

Please can you explain a bit more in detail the connection you want to achieve: eg Internet->DSL router with WIFI->OPI connected via WIFI.

If you try to connect like the way I wrote above, have you tried another device via WIFI and tested its speed?
Please click on reply when answering direct to me. That way I get a notification ;)
