How to connect the Internet to a computer via phone

Modern phones are able to perform a variety of tasks and greatly simplify our lives. For example, using the phone you can connect the Internet to the computer. In this article, we consider this particular case.

Method No. 1. Phone as Wi-Fi Access Point.

If you have a laptop or your stationary computer equipped with a Wi-Fi module, then for you the easiest way to connect the Internet to a computer through the phone will be Wi-Fi access point. Modern phones are able to create Wi-Fi access points and distribute the Internet through them, which they, in turn, receive from a mobile operator using GPRS, 3G or LTE technology.

In this article, we will demonstrate how this is done on the example of the Android operating system. First you need to open Android settings and find a section there called "Other Networks". In some cases, this section may have a different name. For example, on the phones with the original Android shell, it is called "more."

Open the Other Networks section

In the "Other Networks" section, you need to open the "Modem and Access Point" section (this section may be called "modem", "Access point", "Modem mode" or "Connect Access Point").

Modem section and access point

In the "Modem and Access Point" section, turn on the "Mobile Access Point" function.

Turn on the feature Mobile Access Point

After enabling this feature, your phone will create a Wi-Fi access point. In order to connect to it, you need to see the name Wi-Fi network and password. To do this, open the section "Mobile Access Point".

Open the Mobile Access Point

This section will indicate the name of the access point and password from it. Using this data, you can connect to the created Wi-Fi access point and access the Internet on your computer.

Check the name of the access point and password

Method No. 2. Phone as a USB modem.

You can also use your phone as a USB modem. In this case, you can connect the Internet to the computer via the phone, even if there is no Wi-Fi module on the computer. In this case, use the phone as a USB modem is even easier than as Wi-Fi access point. Below we will demonstrate how this is done, on the example of the phone on Android.

First you need to connect your phone to the computer using a USB cable. After the phone is determined by the system, you need to open Android settings on the phone and go to the "Other Web - Modem and Access Point" section, just as we described above. In this section, you need to enable the "USB modem" feature.

Turn on the USB modem function

After that, your system must determine the USB modem itself and connect. Usually, after turning on the "USB modem" function, the Internet appears on the computer after a couple of seconds.

This article discusses the procedure for using a conventional mobile phone (not smartphone) as a modem to connect a computer or a laptop with Windows to the Internet.

Hello, friends! Without the Internet, today probably not to do without ... Depending on the circumstances, you can connect a global network in various ways. And leave the position with the help of the capabilities that you have at the moment at hand. About this today and tell.

How through the phone to connect a computer to the Internet?

The most exotic (but effective) method, which first does not occur. And it turns out that its smartphone can be used as a source of the Internet, when the other provider was "not" under hand. Consider three options for using a smartphone as a modem.

Wi-Fi connection. The smartphone must have a steady Internet access and a tariff traffic package. And the Wi-Fi adapter must be installed on your hospital. They are in two versions: USB and PCI. It is more convenient to use USB, it is easy to connect it.

On the phone you need to make settings in such a way that it can not only take it and distribute the Internet. Each phone model has its own visual features of the settings, but the essence of the same. In the Wi-Fi settings, this option is often hidden in "Additional Settings". Activate on the smartphone "Modem mode" ...

We need to switch the phone to the distribution mode of the Internet, the source of which will be the mobile operator that issued the SIM card. And then configure access to this point from other devices, in our case, a personal computer.

Since the phone has a relatively small range of action and use the Internet for a long time I do not plan, setup access to it without a password (open network). I will leave the name of the network as it is ...

... and the password will not enter. However, you can come up with a password if the Internet is on an ongoing basis. And I chose "No" on the "Protection" settings:

If there is still a password, and you want to connect to a new user access point (no more than six), then in the settings there is an emulator of the WPS button (as on the regular router) so that the user does not need to enter the password on its device:

Tip: Now your smartphone operates in high-consumption mode. If possible, connect it to the charger at work.

Now connect the computer (or any other device) to the Internet. Our list appeared, and her status "is open":

Click just on this connection, and you are on the Internet. Its real speed depends on the coating zone of the cellular operator.

The following option in which you can use your mobile phone as a modem is a connection through the Blue Tooth channel. Perhaps this is the wispid way to use the phone as a modem. On the phone we turn on the "Bluetooth Modem Mode" ...

The computer must be connected to the bluetooth model of the Ponnee model (old models work badly). After connecting it to the computer in "other bluetooth parameters" ...

... you need to allow you to detect the computer to other devices, (that is, your smartphone):

For a sustainable connection, put the phone at no further 1-2 m. Activate bluetooth modem on the phone. Install the pairing. First on the phone by clicking on the bluetooth icon and "Search" we are convinced that the computer appeared in the list of devices ...

And for access, invent any code from numbers, for example, 1234.

Then we enter the same code on the computer ..

After you need to enable bluetooth "network card" that appears and try to connect. If there are no conflicts between the phone, the adapter drivers, the system will detect a new network and connect to it:

If not at hand adapters - you can use the good old (and the easiest) way to connect the smartphone as a modem via a USB cable. You must first connect a smartphone through a USB cable, and then only enable the option "USB-modem":

The model of the smartphone is modern, the easier it will pass. If all is well, the computer immediately responds without any additional settings:

All you need is a good USB cable. Energy spent a little smartphone charging ... My connection speed through the cable turned out pretty good:

By the way, if there is no Internet option on the sim card tariff, to some models of phones (or tablets) can be connected via UART - 3G modem cable and use this modem as a source. Go to 3G modems.

Connect the Internet to a computer via a modem with a sim card

If the cable internet is missing, and on the mobile phone catches bad, you can use a 3G / 4G modem to communicate. What are their advantages? There are universal modems that are suitable for any cellular operator and you can insert any sim. With good coating, the quality and speed of the Internet is decent.

Take a modem to 4G / LTE, Hi-Link categories. This means that the computer does not need to put a special program - it is already inside the modem. It is updated itself, which means that the firmware will be up-to-date.

When you first use the modem, the computer may not run an automatic start (this function is disabled with antivirus). Through the conductor manually start the startup file on behalf of the administrator:

After the first launch, labels may appear on the desktop. This is normal. Then be sure to update the firmware:

With a successful connection, the modem diode should be burned continuously blue or red (depending on which network it caught). If the diode flashes means problems.

In addition, you can connect antennas to the modem, 3G signal amplifiers, active purchased antennas. For example, I have a house in the village located in a lowland and the Internet successfully flushed by somewhere high. In such situations no longer helps the purchased signal amplifier, since there is nothing to strengthen, and it did not buy it.

I had a mast with a television antenna. I decided to make antenna Kharchenko, information on the Internet is full. Installed experimentally oriented on the tower, achieved the best signal quality. The Internet appeared. Not a city of course, but to be in touch - grabbed.

How to connect a computer to the Internet through a cable from the router

Move on. If you can connect to the Internet in your area only after 4G modem, it can be used as a supplier of the Internet for the whole family. Need to buy a router. In modern models of home routers, you will definitely have a USB port for its connection:

When connecting 3G modems directly to routers is achieved a much more stable communication operation, even if the coating is not quite good (trees, bad weather, etc.). In the router settings, connect our 3G / 4G modem as a provider:

Some router models allow you to connect multiple Internet providers, as the main thing you choose our modem.

The principle of setting on all models of routers is the same. Now from the router pull the cable to the computer, (if you need to crimp)

How to connect the Internet to a computer via Wi-Fi without cable on Windows?

If your device with Windows 10 has a WiFi adapter (we already talked about them) You can configure the computer for distributing the Internet through this network card. And share this connection. In the "network parameters and the Internet" go to "Mobile hot spot":

We make settings as in the photo. The default network name will be the name of your computer. The password is automatically generated. But the name and password can be changed to more convenient. This option is suitable if only one port for connecting the RJ 45 cable and there is no wi fi in the router. And the Internet is needed to several users. Good luck!

It is enough to have a contract with a cellular operator (access to the global web today enters almost any tariff plan) and some amount on the balance sheet. Well, the mobile phone itself, which will be a connection point.

Let's talk how to connect the Internet to a computer using an android smartphone as a modem.

Phone as a modem via USB cable

Connect to the Internet via the phone connected to the computer via the USB cable is perhaps the easiest way. This method is convenient because it does not require settings and does not need protection measures from hacking and access to outsiders, like wireless communication. Connection is installed in seconds and works almost smoothly, of course, subject to a good cellular signal and high-quality USB cable.

Procedure:

  • Go to the "Settings" application (in older versions of Android - "parameters"), open the wireless networks section, go to the additional parameters of the wireless networks (in my example they are hidden outside the "still" button).

Application application

  • Turn on "Mobile data", that is, connect the phone to the 3G / 4G Internet network. Or do it in another way - by pressing the button in the curtain, etc. On different android smartphones, this and subsequent actions are performed slightly different, but the essence is about one.

Mobile data

  • Being in additional parameters of wireless networks, open the Modem Mode section. Move the USB modem slider to the "Included" position.

Enabling USB modem

Configuration is complete, the connection is set. Now your computer is connected to a global network via USB cable and mobile operator network.

Bluetooth modem on the phone

If you want to connect to the network of the device equipped with the Bluetooth module (laptops, smartphones, tablets), you can use the phone as a Bluetooth modem. To establish a sustainable communication, client devices should be positioned at no further than 8-9 m from the phone, but is best - in close proximity. In addition, make sure that the Bluetooth adapter is activated on all devices.

Order connection to the Internet via Bluetooth modem on the phone:

  • Turn on the 3G / 4G Internet on the phone.
  • Go to the "Settings" application - "Wireless Networks". Slide the Bluetooth slider to the "Enabled" position.

Turning on Bluetooth

  • Go to the "Bluetooth" section and select the device from the "Available Devices" list that you want to provide access to the World Wide Web. If there are several of them, set the connection in turn. When the windows appear with the conjugation permission request, refer to the code and click the "Connect" button on both connected devices.

Request Bluetooth pairing

  • Open the "Modem Mode" section in the Advanced Settings and turn on the Bluetooth modem.

Bluetooth modem

Now your gadgets have a global network. By the way, at the same time you can continue to use the phone as a modem connected to a USB computer.

Creating a Wi-Fi Access Point on Android Phone

To connect the Internet to a laptop, a tablet, Smart TV and other devices that are in different parts of the apartment, the most convenient to use Wi-Fi. And the access point and the modem will again be our smartphone.

Procedure for setting the access point and internet connection:

  • Turn on the phone Wi-Fi and 3G / 4G-Internet module.

Activation Wi-Fi

  • Go through additional wireless settings in the modem mode section. Touch the "Wi-Fi Access Point".

Modem mode

  • In the "Wi-Fi Access Point" section, move the slider shown in the screenshot to the "Enabled" position. Before connecting to it devices, you need to make several more settings.

Start Access Point Wi-Fi

  • Touch the "Save Access Point" row. In the window that opens, select the appropriate option. To save the battery energy, it is optimally turned off when it is inactive after 5 or 10 minutes. If the phone is connected to the power source constantly, then the access point can always be saved.

Disconnection with inaction

  • Next setting is a network name, encryption method and password. The name (by default usually repeats the name of the phone model) can be any. The best way to protect (encryption) - WPA2 PSK. If you are going to connect an old device to this access point, for example, a Windows XP laptop, choose WEP protection. Next, set the password that users will enter when connecting client devices, and save the setting.

Access point parameters

  • To communicate with the devices equipped with the WPS button, you can use the same feature on the phone. First, press WPS on the client device, next - the "Connect" button shown below on the phone.

WPS.

After that, your gadgets will open access to the World Wi-Fi Wi-Fi. By the way, if you wish, you can use all 3 types of connecting together, but with a very intense load on network modules, the phone will warm up (which is clearly not good) and, despite the feeding from the computer via USB, quickly spends the battery charge. Therefore, it is not worth loading it at the maximum. For such cases, it is better to use the traditional cable Internet connection.
