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.

  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.
