if I enable Tethering (wifi/usb):

  • my phone and the pc can share files on the local net ( phone - pc )
  • but the Internet connection is not shared at all

How can I debug/fix this issue ?


After enabling Tethering follow the steps below:

  1. On the Android phone, press Home, press Menu, and touch Settings to open the Settings application.
  2. Touch Wireless & networks > Tethering & portable hotspot.
  3. Check USB tethering.
