How To Share Your PC Internet On Android Smartphone Via USB Cable

12:53 PM
     Sometimes High speed Internet is required on your Smartphone, no matter how your 2G/3G mobile data connection speeds might be. Background data is what that hinders your speeds, naturally when you try to surf using mobile data. Trust me background data is needed for each and every app on your smartphone, so that you can be notified with push/in-app notifications to get hang of things that matter you the most. This is basically the reason, we often receive slow data speeds on our smartphones while we access Internet & curse our Data providers. Often many of us have Broadband/ISP connections at our homes, but fortunately enough we don't have a Wi-Fi Router. This is reason why many of us head over to Google and Search : How to use PC internet on my Mobile phone, isn't it? Despite of this we land into pages that focus the setup on Laptops, probably due to that integrated Wi-Fi chip. So let's do something about it, here's how you can access Computer ISP/Broadband's Internet on your smartphone directly without any complex setup. On top of that, this doesn't require a Rooted device. Yes, i said "Non-Rooted Devices".

Phone Part:

  • Connect your phone to your computer via a USB cable & Jump right into Settings. 
  • Then dig over to Developer options under settings to turn on USB debugging (Just in-case if it doesn't show up, Follow this: Settings>About Device>Build number, then keep tapping on build number until you get a message- you've unlocked developer options).
  • Once you're through with that part, Go to Settings>More>USB Internet & Select your perspective computer operating system. After that hit Next & Tap Done

So that's everything you need to do on your smartphone, then let's get down with the left Computer Part (Windows only).


Computer Part : 

  • Jump right into Control panel > Network and Internet > Network & Sharing Center & then click- Change Adapter Settings (It's present in upper left hand side).
  • After that you can see a new Lan Area Connection present up, then go to your Default Broadband Connection & right click to access properties. Then click on Sharing > Tick Allow > Select Lan Connection 2.
  • Finally hit OK & you're good to go. Now your Computer Internet (LAN INTERNET) is running automatically on your Android powered Smartphone via USB Cable.

For Moto G, you need to be rootes buddy, this feature is mostly available if a OEM decides to incorporate it in their phones, as far as I'm concerned, Motorola has close to stock Android rom, and they don't have this feature, Rooting is essential, for this to have..! :)

Hi Harsh, unfortunately now you cannot use it as in Android Lollipop you need to root your device for this feature.
