I have an HTC Aria, which is an android phone, with AT&T. This is known as 'tethering'. I found a free app that will do this, if you keep the following things in mind:

  • You have to use your actual HTC USB cable that came with your phone, since other cables don't effectively transmit the type of signal you need to do this, much less even charge your phone.
  • You'll need to visit the link at the end of my message to download 'EasyTether', which was the first--and only--free app I found that did it for me.
  • It was pretty slow--if you're stuck, or need a quick way to connect, and you're nowhere near a free wifi zone (coffee shop, McD's, many Walmart's, public library, etc.), this might do for you--but, one thing, for instance, I found, is that there's no way I could ever hope to watch bit-streamed video, but you might 'Facebook', 'email', do some school research, or--well, you get the idea. Not much video, PLUS--you're using your mobile connection, so 'you'll pay'! (Unless you have unlimited)
  • that's about it
After I upgraded my 'Android OS' to 2.2 via HTC's site, I found a bunch of 'interesting-looking' additional options under the phone's 'Wireless Networking' settings that appeared to finally make this both 'official' and easier. No such luck--when I tried connecting using these options, an 'error message' showed up, which I had to Google to find out that these were made in order to force you to pay for 'yet another feature' as an option to add to your mobile network--no thanks!
I have broadband at my house currently, but I'm confident that if I went back and downloaded the 'EasyTether' app to my phone, I could easily hook it right back up and use it as a 'cloud-type' access point for at least one device (laptop!).
Hope this helps--just be careful about your usage once you get it working!

Tip

Use ANdroid phones as Modems when using laptop or desktop(pc).


The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.



Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:

Android phone
Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system
USB cable

You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.



The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.

Four popular Android tethering apps are:

PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app.
EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone.
Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted.
Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.

(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)

Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.



HOW TO

Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.

There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!

Tablet will not connect to wifi


When you tether with your Android-powered smartphone, you can connect to the Internet on your computer from any location covered by your cellphone service provider's network. Tethering allows your phone to act as a modem for the computer. Tethering applications such as Tether for Android allow you to set up tethering without the need to root your phone. Before tethering, check with your cellphone service provider to determine how much data you are allowed to use without incurring data charges. Excessive use of the Android phone as a modem can cause you to exceed your allotted data.

Search the Android Market on your phone for a tethering application. Applications such as EasyTether and PdaNet are available to download for free. Download the application from the Market. Installation begins immediately after the download. When installation finishes, an icon for the tethering app is placed on the Android's expanded home screen. Open a Web browser on the computer and access the site specified in the tethering application's description in the Market. Download and install the USB drivers needed to tether from the site. When installation is finished, an icon for the tethering application is placed on the computer's desktop. Tap "Settings" on your Android phone, then tap "Applications." Tap "Development" and enable "USB Debugging." When the field turns green, it is enabled. Connect the phone to the computer with its USB cable. Launch the tethering application on the phone. Launch the application on the computer. Click the option to connect to the Internet in the home screen. When the connection is established, confirmation is displayed in the status window.

Can you connect your android to the wii console through usb for an access point for internet


Wii to Android? Nope. The Wii doesn't have internet connection sharing.

Android to Wii? Possibly, using an app called Easy Tether for the Android and additional hardware. The app has a Free/Lite version and a Paid for version ($10).

The entire process of getting it to connect is outlined here:
http://techforums.nintendo.com/message/5501


Of course all of this seems like more trouble than it's worth; once you get online, the Wii isn't exactly known for it's amazing online capabilities... but that might just be my opinion.

How i access internet in linux rhel 4 by my motorazr v3i


But there is a software i would personally recommend to you.

Name of software is "Sakis3g". It can connect to mobile phones and other mobile devices which can be detected by linux kernel. You can use IR, Bluetooth, even USB cable to connect to your device.

You can use this software for the following



  1. connect to mobile devices by IR, bluetooth, USB Cable
  2. Send and receive files between computer and device
  3. Access Internet from Device by Dial Up Networking
  4. Browse files on Mobile device
  5. Mount the mobile device on a user specified mount point or communication port.
    Usually it mounts connected mobile device to /dev/rfcomm0. Through this port, you can communicate with the device .
  6. Connect to USB Modem (Like Reliance DataConnect, TATA Photon, IDEA Netsetter etc.)
  7. ability to connect to any locked/unlocked USB Internet Modems (Zero Devices)
  8. fully automated connection setup. No manual input is needed except to specify connection name.




You can find more details and download Sakis3g from this address

Sakis3g Homepage may not specify anything about connecting a mobile phone to computer and using it as an Internet Modem, but trust me its possible. Meanwhile I'm posting this by using DUN with the help of this script.
  • Just Run the script
  • choose Connect
  • Select Bluetooth
  • It will search for a new bluetooth device
  • Once your phone is detected, Select it and press ok
  • when it asks for APN (Access Point Name) provide it
  • When it asks for user name and password, Provide it. If your service provider do not need any username and password to access internet , Don't just leave it as blank (Program doesn't accepts empty user name and password. you just press space and enter)
  • Once all necessary informations are entered program may simply closes. Don't worry your connection manager will show this new connection entry.

  • To Disconnect the connection , you can select Disconnect option in Sakis3g.

hope this will help you to solve your issue.
