I only have Internet connection from LAN through Linux PC.

How can I connect my Android 2.1 to the Internet though USB cable?

  • Which phone are you using? Many phone manufacturers provide software which enables Internet tethering. I have HTC One X and HTC Sync Manager which allows me to tether my phone to my laptop. But HTC Sync Manager is only available for Windows and I assume it would be case with others also.

If you're rooted you can use this...


There are other apps out there that do the same, but that one looks reliable and is free.

  • I think this exactly what I'm looking for but unfortunately it doesn't work although I successfully installed it... BTW: I'm using SonyEricsson Xperia X8
