How often do you have to do something on a laptop, but you do not have access to the Internet? The solution is simple: use a smartphone as a wireless router and use its traffic when working with a laptop, tablet or desktop.
Most smartphones can serve as Wi-Fi hotspots. The location and functionality of smartphones may be slightly different, but the overall result will be the same.
Unlimited billing and LTE networks are becoming more common, so fast Internet access is always in our pocket. It is very easy to share this traffic with other devices using a smartphone, eliminating the need to use a real router. Go to Settings> More> Tethering & Portable. There are many options you can not see before, including a Wi-Fi hotspot.
How to share data via USB
The first element of this screen is the “USB Modem” option, which allows you to share traffic via a USB cable. This means that you can charge your smartphone at the same time and connect it to your computer or laptop over the Internet. This option is usually inactive, highlighted only when a USB cable is connected.
How to Share data with Bluetooth
This is the “Bluetooth modem” option, where the Bluetooth wireless standard is used instead of the USB cable. To do this, you need to turn on Bluetooth and connect to another device to get traffic.
How to set up a portable Wi-Fi hotspot
In the middle there is “Wi-Fi hotspot” and “Wi-Fi hotspot settings”. If you do not want to use the default settings or do not know what the access point is, you must open the settings. By default, the network is called AndroidAP, you can set the password to enter when you connect another device. At any time, the network can be renamed and the password can be changed. When the installation is complete, click the radio button next to the active Wi-Fi hotspot. On the other device, look for the network name in the list of available Wi-Fi networks.
We must remember that not everyone has unlimited mobile internet, and when they go online from a computer or laptop, the traffic is consumed quickly because it does not use the mobile versions of the sites Web. If you have a limited pricing plan, monitor traffic usage carefully.
