How to Share Internet Connection from PC/Laptop to Android Phone via WI-FI

Now it easy to connect your Android phone to PC/Laptop using Wi-Fi. Smartphone the most using thing all over the world and another thing that joins this list is internet everyone wants to be connected with their family and friends and keep updating their status etc. So here I’m going to tell you about connecting the wireless devices like Smartphone’s like iPhone, Android Phones, Windows Phones etc. Now you can share internet connection between PC and laptop and between PC and Smartphone with built in Wi-Fi by using a popular tool called Wi-Fi Ad-Hoc networking.

The most unfortunate thing is that you need to root the system files of your Android device and change the Wi-Fi configuration file settings for accessing the Ad-Hoc networks, but this will works fine with windows based Smartphone’s.

Don’t worry there is another alternative method which you can use to share your laptop and PC internet connection with your Smartphone. Here just you need to download this free software called virtual router and create virtual access point and it works in almost all Android phones.

Share Internet Connection from PC/Laptop to Android Phone

Download and install Virtual Router Software on to your PC or Laptop.

Open the virtual router program and fill the settings form by entering the Network Name [SSID], password and Connection type you want to share.

Note: Make sure that Wi-Fi is enabled in your system

           Also read the hardware documentation for supported Wi-Fi devices in virtual router website.

Virtual router software for Android

Settings on Android

On your Android phone, go to Settings -> Wireless and Networks ->Wi-Fi Settings.

Enable the Wi-Fi in your Android phone.

Once you enabled the phone will scan automatically for available networks, in some if scan doesn’t take automatically means scan manually.

Then the list of available Wi-Fi networks will be displayed, click on the network that you have created in virtual router and enter the password and click connect.

That’s it now you have connected your Android phone to Wi-Fi network. Without waiting get start to access the internet on your Android phone.
