How To Access Internet On Your PC Using Android Phone

The following steps will teach you how to access internet on any PC having Windows OS 8 using your Android Phone’s Internet. What am about to explain you here teaches you to connect to internet using the method  called as ‘USB Tethering’.

This method may also work on any other OS such as Linux, or other Windows OSes which I haven’t tried yet but should work as well. You don’t need any supporting software to configure and start using the Internet.

You Need: Windows 8, Phone cable, and any Android phone
