Consider if am using WiFi hotspot(authenticated with password) for internet in my mobile.Is it possible to tether that connection to another device via any wifi,usb or blutooth?

Let me be clear for example:

I have a wifi modem through which i can access internet in my phone,now my question is now whether i can tether my mobile wifi / usb / bluetooth so that i can provide connection to another mob.(here internet source is wifi modem)

Is there a option ?also whenever i enable wifi portability,the current connection gets disconnected

Yes, you can share your phone's WiFi connection which is connected via any wifi source to more phones, tablets and computers using Bluetooth so other devices can access internet. Here's how to share your Android phone's WiFi connection over Bluetooth.

Here is a clear explanation to share your wifi over Bluetooth.

The tethering option or hotspot is available only if you are connected to mobile data/carrier network. If you are already connected to wifi, enabling hotspot on your phone will disconnect you from the wifi. This is a limitation in all android phones.

  • thank you @bbh ,usb ,bluetooth tethering too get disconnected ?

  • Tethering will not disconnect Bluetooth. But I am not sure about USB, but my guess is USB should not be disconnected.

From the picture I understand that you want to make a repeater with your phone? Is that correct?

  1. The phone must be have ROOT access.
  2. Install the application (fqrouter2-2-12-7-multi-android.apk) or (fqrouter-2.11.5.apk)
  3. Make the settings and enjoy ...

Good luck


Their are few devices which can work as a wifi bridge. I.e can use wifi and share internet of that wifi through hotspot simultaneously. Redmi not 5 pro is an example of it. U can share the wifi through usb tethering!
