Have you found yourself in a place where there is no Wi-Fi and you need to work urgently on your computer or want to watch a movie on your TV? In this case, the solution is to use the option of sharing the Internet from the phone. The cell then acts as a portable router. However, it should be remembered that the data used reduces the packet held in the mobile network. If it is exceeded, it may be necessary to pay additional fees.
It's easy to share the Internet from your phone with other devices. Just enter the settings. However, it should be noted that not every phone model will have such a function.
The Wi-Fi router is the first option. Start by enabling the data package. Then go to settings and go to the tab called "Connections". Choose between "Internet Sharing" and "Wi-Fi Router". The options here will differ depending on the model. You should look for your own router configuration option. In the menu, you can select the name of the network, its security, and set availability for all devices or only for selected devices. It depends on the phone whether you set a data limit or a connection time, for example.
USB Tethering / USB Router:
This is another option to share the Internet from your phone. It is especially useful for older computers and phones. Start by connecting your phone to the computer with a USB cable. Then go to the settings and the "Connections" tab. Use the "Internet Sharing" option, then enable the USB Router or USB Tethering option. On a computer or other device, connect to the network. Make sure that data plan is turned on in your phone.
A Bluetooth router is another option to share the Internet over the phone. Enter the settings again and select the "Connections" and "Internet Sharing" tab. Enable the Bluetooth Router option. Return to the previous menu, then enter Bluetooth settings. Make sure your device is visible. Connect to a computer to share the Internet.
iPhone Internet Sharing:
In the case of iPhones, Internet sharing is a bit different, although it is still nothing complicated. In the settings, select the "Personal Hotspot" option and configure it. iPhone can then share the network via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a USB cable. Some operators may block Apple devices from sharing the Internet.
