Sharing Android tablet or Phone’s Internet with Computer using USB Data Cable

Posted on Updated on

Hai friend today i discuss about how to connect the android tablet/mobile to pc computer to share internet.


now a days everyone using android phones and tablets the devices and phone can be use it for calling and for browsing, chatting, video-chatting, playing games, and even share the device’s Internet connection with a computer. Sometimes the LAN connection gets into trouble and we badly need to connect to the Internet. If your Android phone has got Internet connection (GPRS, EDGE or 3G), you can share it with your PC via USB data cable.

Of course the data cable’s one end has to be micro-USB since most, if not all, Android devices have a micro-UBS output port. Let’s see the steps to share the mobile’s Internet connection with your computer when badly in need.


  1. PC Computer
  2. Android tablet/phone
  3. USB cable which connects the phone and the PC
  4. Internet connection to mobile which is provided by the service providers

NOTE: First select a internet plan for your mobile which will be fixed for your browsing  I usually have a fixed 1GB data plan on my phone so it doesn’t costs  much.

One more thing to know: This tutorial follows the interface of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. If you’re on ICS or Jelly Bean, you will find little difference. Don’t freak out and just explore a bit here and there. You’ll see the steps are very similar.

Share Internet Connection with PC

First you have to make sure that the data traffic is turned on. If you can access the Internet from your device, then your device’s traffic is most probably turned on. You can double check this by going to Settings > Wireless & network settings > mobile networks > data enabled. If the data enabled check box is checked, then your phone is permitted to access the Internet based on the cellular network.

Now, connect the USB cable to the computer. It’s better to first connect the cable to your device and then connect the other end to the computer. Once connected, you may be prompted to install the PC suite or whatever software your device requires to work with computer. However, for this purpose, it is not necessary. Skip it and go to Settings > Wireless & network settings > Tethering & portable hotspot > USB tethering. This USB tethering checkbox needs to be checked.

Once you check the box, your device’s Internet will be automatically shared with your computer. No additional configuration is necessary.

    Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Thanks for the points you have discussed here. Another thing I would like to mention is that personal computer memory specifications generally go up along with other advances in the technological innovation. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there is certainly usually an equivalent increase in the size and style preferences of both the computer memory as well as hard drive room. This is because the application operated simply by these cpus will inevitably surge in power to use the new technological innovation.
