How can I connect my phone to the Internet via my PC?

Anonymous October 4, 2013

How can I access the Internet in my Android phone through my laptop’s broadband connection?  I don’t have WiFi, so i want to use broadband.

[ed. I believe OP wants to wire the phone to the laptop via USB to perform this task.]

    Make sure that you are running Windows 7 or above. Windows XP can't support this function.
    Download the software (similar to WIFIxx) on the computer.
    Connect your computer to Internet and open the WIFI software installed. Get the WIFI name and code.
    Open the Android phone and search the WIFI to connect.

    You will need to root your phone for this.
    You can search for reverse tethering on the play store, though this method is flawed and you shouldn't expect much from it. Better option would be to buy a small USB Wireless router.
