The best way (IMO) is to bridge the network of USB tethering(192.168.42.x) and the Wifi hotspot(192.168.43.x), but I don't have any solution to bridge them. That said, I do have a solution to transfer files between PC and Laptop within the constraints mentioned in the question (with "no internet" exclusively). The common point of interaction in our ...

I find that if I use the Nexus phone as the source, I can send gpx files to both other devices. But if I try to send a gpx file FROM the tablet, Bluetooth states that the content is not supported. Both the tablet and Nexus phone are rooted, the other ...
