Ubuntu share internet via ethernet

Recently I tried setting up the laptop computer in my home to share its wireless Internet connection via Ethernet to my Playstation 3.
Let me explain : I'm using wifi on my laptop and connected to VPN to login into specific region. I also want my Playstation 3 to connect to VPN to access few region specific content.

You may have your old computer which doesn't support wifi and you want to hook up into your home network.

Step 1: Open and Edit Network Connections

Step 2: Go to IPv4 Settings - Method : Shared to other computers

Step 2: Go to IPv6 Settings - Method : Ignore

That's it : Now connect both the devices using ethernet cable and you're done!
