Share PC Internet Connection With Your Android Phone Via USB

Step 1. If this is the first time you are connecting the phone to the computer through USB you will need to install the USB drivers.

Generally, USB drivers are supplied by the device manufacturer together when you buy your phone. If you don’t have the USB drivers, search and download the proper drivers for your phone model.

Step 2. Enable USB debugging in your Android Phone by going Settings>>Application>>Development>>USB Debugging.

Step 3. Download latest Reverse Tethering Package from here.or xda

Step 4. Extract the downloaded package in a folder.

Step 5. Now navigate inside the extracted folder and you will see a file named as AndroidTool.exe.

Step 6. Run AndroidTool.exe and click on Refresh Button that will be given in front of Select a device.

Step 7. The device connected to the PC will be shown in the spinner in front of Select a device. Choose your Android device from there.


Step 8. Click on the Connect button.

This will install the latest android package and the dependencies (busybox and redsocks) on the connected Android phone.

Step 9. At this point,the SuperUser process may ask you to allow

“USB tunnel”.

If it doesn’t or the Reverse Tethering application fails to connect to the device,open the USB Tunnel app that should be installed on your phone.

Step 10. If this prompt will not come by itself just open the USB Tunnel application installed on your phone. It will now ask for superuser permissions.

Now if all goes right you will be able to access internet on your android phone.That’s it! .If you have any issues regarding this tutorial then feel free to share your issue with us by leaving a comment.

    excellent, it worked on the first attempt, although the speed is too slow. Is there any way to speed up the internet on mobile? The current speed is 69kbps.

    Awesome. Works great. Been looking for a long time for something like this. Tip: Put your mobile in MTP mode, not Mass storage and it works beautifully. Thanks a lot.

    There is something to figure out, the wifi connection failed each time I connect my Android device on my computer. The USB Tunnel has stop my wifi connection on the computer and there is no data connection. So I realize the Reverse Tether can only work with Local Area connection.
