The dvr really needs a proper internet connection (ethernet based) directly to the router to function. While it is possible to route it through your computer, that is not a route I'd recommend. It is overly complicated, prone to interruptions, will slow your computer down, and anytime the computer has an issue, restarts, etc it will cause problems for the dvr.What you'd have to do is configure software on the computer to issue an ip address to the ethernet card in the pc, and then you'd need to bridge your wired and wifi connections on the pc. It would make more sense to purchase an external device such as a wifi bridge, that can connect on its own to the hotspot via wifi, then provide an ethernet connection to the dvr: will be faster and more stable in the long run as well.
