Mobile operating systems, today, are prepared to give users much more than the simple ability to make and receive calls. In addition to the apps that support them, there are also extra important features.
One of them is the ability to share Internet access, quickly and efficiently, ensuring constant connectivity, keeping users connected to the Internet, not just by smartphones. Today we show you how to do it, using a simple USB cable.
Further explore the Android connection
Everyone knows the possibility of sharing the Internet from an Android smartphone with a PC using WiFi. If this is the simplest method, it does not always guarantee the best transmission speeds and the necessary stability.
For this reason, other ways of doing this sharing are also present, using Bluetooth or a USB cable. This last one form it is probably the most efficient and the most stable, not always being the chosen one.
Sharing with a simple USB cable
To do this sharing you must open the Android settings and then look for the Mobile network option. Once inside, they must choose the option Internet sharing and portable access point.
However, they must connect the USB cable between the smartphone and the PC to be recognized. You will immediately see that the Via USB option is available to be activated. Whenever they need access to the Internet, they must activate this option.
Windows 10 also plays a role in saving
Of course, you must be careful when using this connection, so as not to quickly consume the data plan they have available. Therefore, when they do not need an Internet connection, they must disable the connection.
Another option they have available to control these consumptions is, in the case of Windows 10, to define the connection as having limited traffic. You find this option in the Settings, when choosing Network and Internet and then the connection.
Bring the Internet connection to the PC
In this way, Windows will limit the use of the connection, leaving out functions such as updates or other functions with greater consumption. Whenever this link is activated, these limits are also activated.
It is in this simple way that they can create an Internet share between any Android smartphone and a PC. This will be stable and without interruptions, ensuring a connection that will not cause problems for users.
