How to use PC Internet in Android using USB Cable

14

There are lots of Android users who have internet connection in their computer, but don’t have any WiFi router to access it in Android.

So today I am going to tell a very nice trick to use your PC internet in your Android. This process is called Reverse Tethering.

Most of us heard about WiFi or USB Tethering, as this is a process to share your Android Phone’s internet with other devices.

Reverse Tethering is just it’s opposite. We can share PC internet connection with Android. So lets start the process.

Prerequisites:

If you don’t know how to Root your Android Phone

  • You will need your Android Phone Drivers

Use internet on Android by Reverse Tethering

Steps to Share Computer Internet in Android

1. First download Android Reverse Tethering from the XDA Forum.

You can also download the little tool from this Direct Link

2. After downloading the file extract it on your Windows PC and open it. You will find AndroidTool.exe file within the folder.

Double click on that file and run it.

4. Connect your Android Phone with your Computer using USB Cable.

5. Now if you have drivers installed for your Android it will popup in your PC that a “New Device has been connected”.

6. Now open Android Reverse Tethering in Computer. Now you will be able to see your Android device name inside the software. Select the DNS you want to use. Preferable DNS is 8.8.8.8.

  1. i have problem on “usb tunnel”
    error say:-
    service is running.

    not connected. if the cable was unplugged, plug it.
    if the tool was running and previously connected,
    an automatic connection will be done

    stop service

    • Hey, Halo
      Buddy this is a normal problem for USB Tunnel. When you are facing this problem try to start again. At first disconnect the cable from the PC, then Kill USB Tunnel in you Android Phone and also Restart USB tunnel from your PC then connect again and try. I think it will solve your problem 🙂

      • I am having this same problem. However my issue is that it says to check for a superuser request on my phone and when it receives permission nothing changes. Yes this would say to me that my rooting is not done in correctly however this is not the case as other apps needing root access work.

        Please investigate this as there is not much info on the net for it.
