Connect to USB based System PC Internet Connect with Reverse Tether Android App

PC Mobile ConnectionThe Android phones can be best enjoyed when you are connected to web. Without web your Android phone is just a phone for calls, games and messages. Social network, various applications, widget requires access to internet via anything of 2G, 3G or 4G LTE. In United States data plans are much higher and we know we need internet on our mobile phone and the only possible sources are to get Wi Fi or get a data plan.

If you have a data plan active, you can make use of Wi Fi tethering or Bluetooth tethering to connect your laptop or computer with internet but what if you don’t have internet on your mobile phone and desire to share your laptop connection with your phone? Is it possible? I would say yes its possible, earlier the Connectify software used to do it easily but it’s not working now. Thanks to Reverse Tether Android application which I have just found to do this trick for you.

Reverse Tether an Android application allows you to access your personal computer internet connection on your smartphone using the USB. We have seen so many applications to USB tether your device with the PC but this is the only application in the Android Play Store which does such a thing.

How does Reverse Tether Works?

Reverse Tethering works by simple connecting your phone to the computer using a USB cable. The speed of the internet that you get depends on your mobile phone is almost same as that of what you used and your phone is using the broadband internet hence it will be much faster.

This application is quite useful when –

  • You don’t have a mobile data plans
  • When you have a limited data plans
  • When you need to upgrade via OTA update
  • If you are in roaming and likes to avoid roaming data charges
  • If you don’t trust the security or the privacy of your Wi Fi network
  • If you Wi Fi connection is weak or slow or get disconnected all the time
  • If you don’t want to visit the burger or bakery just for the sake of internet access
  • Prefer to get maximum download and upload speed

This application is quite easy but there are few bad thing is that this application requires rooting access on your mobile phone.

As soon as you setup and run this application on to your mobile phone, you would be taken with the set up your phone connection. Tap on Next. This will ask for the USB Connection and if you have connected your phone to the USB then well and fine.Reverse Tether Setup
