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
On your Android Phone go to the below screen and touch the settings button marked red in the below picture
After your press ‘settings’ button you must be able to see the screen as shown below. At this location, under ‘Wireless and Networks‘, choose ‘More Settings“.
Now You should be able to see the screen as shown below. Choose “Tethering and Portable hotspot “
Here you have the option to access internet on your PC using WiFi Tethering or Bluetooth Tethering besides USB Tethering. I tried accessing internet using the other two tethering methods which took lot of time to configure. I found USB tethering faster to connect to the internet.
As shown below, at this screen choose ‘USB Tethering’.
Make sure your phone is connected to your PC via USB cable, that comes with your phone, at the time you are following these steps.
Once you choose USB Tethering you should be able to get this screen which says, ‘Tethered’. Now you are ready to go. Watch what happens on your PC while you perform this step: You must get a message asking you ‘Yes’ or ‘N0’ question. Just choose ‘Yes’.
