Apparently this is possible, if your iPhone is jailbroken:

(update: this does not seem to work for iPod touch, iPads without 3g etc. – because they lack the “second network card” interface)

can i get it on my ipod touch. Unfortunately, not. ipod touch doesn’t have gprs/edge network interface to redirect it to the proxy.

Follow this lengthy procedure (note that it’s originally for iOS 2.x, using a Windows PC):

We will connect it to the Internet-connected PC via standard USB cable and get the iphone online in this passthru, reverse mode. Without wifi, without GPRS/EDGE fee to GSM operator. Incredible, impossible? Read further.

  • On the PC you will need: Bitvise Tunnelier, itunnel
  • And on the iPhone/iPad3G: OpenSSH and a proxy-setting file

Alternatively you could try this procedure by dy2k (again only for iDevices supporting Internet Tethering) :

Reverse Tethering iPhone 3G/3Gs using USB

Step 1: Set up internet tethering on your iPhone.

Step 2: Plug you iPhone into your PC using the provided USB cable.

Step 3: Go to Settings>General>Network>Internet Tethering and switch it to “On.” Then it will prompt you for bluetooth or USB, select USB

Step 4: Go to network connections and you should see your LAN connection and a new connection that says “Apple Mobile Device Ethernet.” Simply highlight both connections, right click on one and select “Bridge.”

You will now be using your PC’s internet connection on your iPhone! It works for Cydia App store, Facebook, Safari, ect ect.

Note: After terminating the connection you must delete the bridge and make a new one when you re-connect.

Every iPhone can connect to the internet anywhere it can get a network signal, but most iPads need Wi-Fi to get online. Wi-Fi-only iPads can get online using an iPhone with a technology called tethering, which Apple calls Personal Hotspot on the iPhone. This feature allows the iPhone to function as a Wi-Fi hotspot and share its cellular network connection with nearby devices using Wi-Fi. Here’s how to tether your iPhone and iPad.

These instructions apply to iPhones and iPads with iOS 7 or later.

Check your cellular data plan to see if it includes mobile hotspots.

How to Tether an iPad to an iPhone

To share your iPhone’s cellular data connection with any nearby iPad so it can get online, follow these steps:

Open Settings.

Select Personal Hotspot.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Move the Personal Hotspot toggle switch to on/green.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Note the Personal Hotspot password listed on this screen. If the default password is too hard to remember, you can change it by tapping it and entering a new one on the next screen. Tap Done to save the new password.

Hotspot passwords must be at least eight characters.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Your iPhone is now ready to connect to your iPad.

Now follow these steps to connect your iPad to your iPhone hotspot:

Tap Settings.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Tap Wi-Fi.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

In the Personal Hotspots section, tap the name of your phone.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Enter the password for the hotspot, if prompted. The password can be found in the menu on your iPhone.

When the iPad connects to the iPhone, a blue bar appears at the top of the iPhone screen (on some models, it’s a blue bubble around the time in the upper-left corner). This indicates that a device is connected to the Personal Hotspot. The iPad can access the internet through the iPhone as long as the Personal Hotspot is turned on and the iPad is in Wi-Fi range of the iPhone.

You can use the iPhone as you normally would even while the iPad is tethered to it. Personal Hotspot doesn’t interfere with it. The only difference you might notice is that the iPhone’s internet connection may be a little slower than normal since the iPad is sharing it.

How Data Use Works When Tethering

Any data that devices use while tethered to the iPhone counts against the iPhone’s monthly data plan. If you have a plan that charges you for overages or slows your speeds after you use a certain amount, you’ll want to be aware of this. It’s usually best to let other devices tether for limited periods of time and for relatively low-data-use functions. For example, don’t tether an iPad to the iPhone’s cellular connection to download a 4 GB game.

Connecting Multiple Devices to One iPhone

Multiple devices can be connected to a single iPhone Personal Hotspot. These could be other iPads, iPod touches, computers, or other Wi-Fi-equipped devices. Follow the steps to connect the device to Wi-Fi, enter the iPhone Personal Hotspot password, and you’ll have everyone online in no time.

How to Disconnect Tethered Devices

When you’re done, turn off Personal Hotspot on your iPhone by returning to Settings > Personal Hotspot and turning the toggle switch to off/white.

Turning off the Personal Hotspot automatically disconnects any devices that are using it.

Keep Personal Hotspot off except when you’re using it to conserve battery life.

While not required, the iPad user should probably also turn off their Wi-Fi to save battery. Open Control Center and tap the Wi-Fi icon (second from the left in the top bar) so that it’s not highlighted.

It’s possible, in some situations, for Personal Hotspot to disappear from your iPhone, preventing you from tethering an iPad to it. In other cases, Personal Hotspot may stop working.

Standard “tethering” involves connecting your phone, tablet, or other device to your smartphone, sharing your smartphone’s mobile data connection with your other devices. But you may sometimes want to get your iPhone or iPad online via your PC or Mac.

This is most useful when you’re in an area with low signal strength — perhaps if you don’t have a Wi-Fi signal and only have an Ethernet connection available to you. Or, you may be unable to connect your iPhone or iPad to the local Wi-Fi network.

Reverse-Tether Over Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi tethering might be the best idea, just as creating a Wi-Fi hotspot on your phone is a good way to share its mobile data connection. If you’re unable to get your iPhone or iPad online because there’s no Wi-Fi signal near you and you have to connect your laptop or PC to an old-fashioned wired Ethernet connection, this can work well.

On a Windows PC, you can use the Internet Connection Sharing feature and create a Wi-Fi hotspot. Connect your iOS device to the hotspot provided by your laptop (or desktop, if it has Wi-Fi hardware) and you can then get online through the wired Ethernet connection.

With a Windows PC, you can also share a Wi-Fi network you’re connected to over Wi-Fi. You’ll just need to use the Virtual Router software to turn your Windows laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

On a Mac, you can use the Sharing panel in the System Preferences window to enable Internet sharing over Wi-Fi, sharing a wired Ethernet connection connected to your Mac via a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Unlike on a Windows PC, your Mac can’t share a Wi-Fi connection it’s connected to by creating a Wi-Fi hotspot. It can only do one thing at a time with one physical Wi-Fi adapter. However, you can do this by purchasing additional USB-to-Wi-Fi devices, giving your Mac multiple Wi-Fi interfaces.

How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

Reverse-Tether Over Bluetooth

On a Windows PC, you shouldn’t need to bother creating a Bluetooth personal area network (PAN) at all. You’ll probably be better off just creating a Wi-Fi hotspot and connecting to it from your iPhone or iPad.

On a Mac, creating a Bluetooth PAN is a useful way to share a Wi-Fi Internet connection your Mac is connected to. This is useful when you can’t get your iPhone or iPad online via Wi-Fi — perhaps you only have a single login to the network and you can only have one device online at a time. This often happens on hotel Wi-Fi networks.

To do this, open the Sharing panel in the System Preferences window, tell your Mac you want to share its Wi-Fi connection, and select Bluetooth. Pair your iPhone or iPad with the computer via Bluetooth and it’ll gain access to the Internet through the Bluetooth connection.

USB Reverse-Tethering — Only for Jailbreakers

You can tether your Mac or Windows laptop to your iPhone or iPad via a USB cable, gaining access to the Internet through the phone or tablet via the USB cable.

So, can you reverse-tether an iPhone or iPad to a Mac or Windows PC over USB, gaining access to the computer’s internet connection from your phone or tablet? It sounds logical, but you can’t normally do this.

Like all sorts of things you can’t normally do on an iPhone or iPad, you can likely do this if you jailbreak the device and go out of your way to hack around.

But we don’t recommend trying this. Instead of reverse-tethering over a USB cable, just create a Wi-Fi hotspot or a Bluetooth PAN to share your Mac or Windows PC’s Internet connection with your iPhone or iPad. It’ll work without any jailbreaking or hacks required. Sure, a wired connection might technically be faster, but the wireless one should be good enough.

These same methods can be used to share an Internet connection from other operating systems, too. For example, Linux PCs also offer the ability to create Wi-Fi hotspots, and you can connect your iPhone or iPad to that hotspot over Wi-Fi.

Is it possible to tether an iPhone to a PC by using a USB cable to share the PC’s internet connection with the iPhone?

I’ve been scouring the interwebs for a solution and there are articles out there that claim to have achieved this but I haven’t been able to make any of those solutions work.

Has anyone here successfully achieved this?

The PC is Windows 7 on Ethernet connection.

iPhone 8 iOS 11.4.1.

IDK about usb cable, but if the PC has a wifi card, you can build a bridge and share it that way.

It is possible. Here is a step by step guide. I have used this method before and it has been hit or miss. Best of Luck

Note: Windows 10 has this function of being able to turn into a hotspot built in. IDK if upgrading is an option for you tho. Thanks

I’ve done it with Android in the past. Pretty sure my research at the time said you had to jailbreak the iPhones to be able to do it over USB.

  • Hello
    I found a way to reverse tether an i-Device to a Windows PC with ssh, without needing the second network interface provided by a cell network (so it could also work on an iPod Touch or iPad) I used an iPhone 4s with fried Wi-Fi and bluetooth.

    It works by port forwarding a port (probably 80) to your pc’s localhost at port 80.

    You will need 6 pieces of software:

    1. OpenSSH
    You MUST have OpenSSH installed for this trick to work, as it uses port forwarding by ssh.

    2. A web server
    I have Win 7 that came with IIS7 (Internet Information Services 7) installed so I used it, but I would use nginx or Apache. Should have php or cgi support (proxy uses one of these two)

    3. A proxy script
    I use PHProxy, it comes in a php script, that provides a URL box and doesn’t filter anything. Youtube does not work, as m.youtube.com redirects to localhost.com and infinite pinwheels. However you can use a script called Youtube info at a h3xed website, you enter your url and out comes the resolution options, and at the bottom are the complete files (audio and video) choose the one you want. copy, and use VLC or something to stream.
    You must use a proxy as this trick only allows access to one URL. But a proxy used locally just simplifies a URL box to one url, so you can access anything from one webpage, as this trick demonstrates.

    4. An ssh client WITH server to client port forwarding
    I use bitvise SSH client for windows.

    5. Something that can create a usb ssh tunnel
    I use itunnel, back from the olden days of jailbreaking (

    2009) but it still works. I can’t find this online anymore, so I will link it. If you want to try this on mac, try using ifunbox’s usb tunnel feature on port 22 (ssh)

    6. Privoxy or equivalent.
    Somehow it doesnt work now without privoxy. so install it too. Listens by default on 127.0.0.1:8118.

    Let’s get started.

    Step 1. Add correct info to ssh client
    open bitvise/whatever software you have. you will see a login tab, in it, fill in the usual: host is localhost or 127.0.0.1 (whichever works) port 22, username root, initial method password, password alpine or your password if you changed it.
    Now go to S2C. Here, add something with listen interface localhost listen port can be your choice (recommend ort 80), destination host 127.0.0.1 and destination port 8118.

    Step 2: setup web server
    Set up the web server of your choice, follow the instructions for that web server. Once done, add whichever proxy you downloaded, and copy it into the web server hosting folder (for IIS7, /inetpub/wwwroot) Make sure you remember what the main page to type is, for PHProxy it’s index.php.

    Step 3: let the magic happen
    double click on Make_iTunnel.exe, and leave it running. Now go to your ssh client and login.
    Once it’s logged in, you’re almost done. type this: ssh -L listen_port:localhost:80 localhost
    the command works by making a local port forward: it forwards the port of your choice to localhost at port 80 which will connect it to privoxy, which connects it to your webserver! You can change the last localhost at the end to whatever you want (this is what will redirect safari to your webserver) but I recommend leaving it as localhost, most every other address will error out. If bitvise gave you a warning of a rejection of server to client, ignore it, it doesn’t affect anything. Make sure to click apply at the bottom of S2C. Also, ssh might tell you it couldnt listen to your port, in that case change the listen_port to something different and don’t forget to change it in the S2C tab as well.

    Step 4: Safari
    in Safari, type localhost/the cgi or php file. (localhost:listen_port/the cgi or php file if changed)
    It should load youf proxy! type and let it connect to the magical internet.

    If any problems arise please let me know and I will try to fix them.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Typically, people tether their laptops to their Android phones, using the phone’s data connection to get online from anywhere. But you may also want to “reverse tether,” sharing your PC’s Internet connection with an Android phone or tablet.

    There are a variety of ways to do this. You could use a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth — or even reverse-tether entirely over a wired USB cable. It’s useful when your computer has an Internet connection, but your phone doesn’t.

    Create a Wi-Fi Access Point

    The simplest method here will likely be to create a Wi-Fi hotspot. This is just like creating a Wi-Fi hotspot on your phone to share its mobile data connection with your PC or Mac. But, instead, you’ll be creating a Wi-Fi hotspot on your computer and sharing its Internet connection with your Android phone or tablet.

    Of course, you’ll need Wi-Fi hardware to do this. A typical laptop will work just fine. If you want to reverse-tether an Android phone or tablet to a desktop computer that doesn’t have Wi-Fi so you can share its wired Ethernet connection, you can purchase an inexpensive USB-to-Wi-Fi adapter and use it for this purpose.

    Android phones and tablets don’t support ad-hoc networks, but the Virtual Router software will create a Wi-Fi hotspot that functions as an access point, allowing Android devices to connect. If you’re using another solution, be sure it functions as an access point and not an ad-hoc network.

    We recommend using Virtual Router for creating a Wi-Fi hotspot on a Windows PC. It’s a convenient front-end to the powerful Wi-Fi hotspot and Internet Connection Sharing features built into Windows. You can use it to share a wired Ethernet connection over Wi-Fi, or even share a Wi-Fi connection you’re connected to by creating a Wi-Fi hotspot. This makes it convenient in situations where you only have one login for a Wi-Fi network — like in a hotel.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Mac users could theoretically use the Internet Sharing feature built into Mac OS X for this, but that creates an ad-hoc network Android devices can’t connect to.

    Bluetooth PAN

    You could also use Bluetooth for this. Assuming your phone or tablet runs Android 4.0 or newer, you can pair it over Bluetooth and use a Bluetooth PAN (Personal Area Network).

    Typically, you’ll want to create a Wi-Fi hotspot if you use Windows and connect to the Internet through that. Wi-Fi is faster and easier to set up. However, a Bluetooth PAN is particularly useful on Macs — if you want to share a Mac’s Wi-Fi connection with an Android smartphone or tablet, you’ll need to use a Bluetooth PAN or get a second physical Wi-Fi adapter (like a USB-to-Wi-Fi adapter), as you need two separate network interfaces for this.

    Enable Internet Sharing over Bluetooth on your Mac and pair your Android phone with your Mac. Tap the connected device on your Android device’s Bluetooth settings screen and enable the “Internet access” checkbox.

    USB Cable – Root Only

    It’s possible to tether your computer to an Android phone over USB, accessing the Internet via the phone. You might wonder if it’s possible to reverse-tether an Android phone or tablet to a computer via USB, accessing the Internet through the computer’s network connection.

    This is possible, but it requires root access. We’ve covered a method to reverse-tether an Android phone or tablet to computer via a USB cable using a Windows application, and there are other similar methods that use different tools or commands you can type.

    The USB cable method is most useful when you’re in a location where you can’t use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth reverse-tethering for some reason. It’s obnoxious because of the requirement for root access and the additional hacks and tools required to get this working. Worse yet, some Android apps won’t actually realize they have an Internet connection if you do this. If possible, you’re better off setting up a Wi-Fi access point or using a Bluetooth PAN for reverse-tethering.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Unfortunately, none of these methods will work for a Chromebook. Despite Google’s attempts to make Chrome OS and Android work better together, a Chromebook can’t yet create a Wi-Fi hotspot or Bluetooth PAN to share its Internet connection with other devices.

    That’s assuming you’re running Chrome OS, anyway — you could potentially put your Chromebook into developer mode and install a full Linux system to gain access to the Wi-Fi hotspot-creation tools built into typical Linux distributions.

    What to Know

    • In Windows: Control Panel >Network and Internet >Network Connections >Ethernet >Sharing, or use a third-party app.
    • In macOS: System Preferences >Sharing >Internet Sharing.
    • Use a travel router.

    This article describes how to share your laptop’s internet connection with your phone by turning your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

    How to Share Your Laptop’s Internet Connection

    You can share the laptop’s data connection over Wi-Fi or over a wire, depending on your setup.

    Windows

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Windows lets you share your internet connection over ICS. ICS, or Internet Connection Sharing, is a feature built-in to Windows, so you don’t have to download anything to use it.

    If the laptop is connected via a wire to a router or modem, you can share that connection to a phone or tablet over the Wi-Fi adapter or through another Ethernet port.

    Another option for sharing your Windows laptop’s internet connection that doesn’t create a bridge like the method above is to use the same Wi-Fi adapter to share internet. You can do this with free third-party programs such as Connectify.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    When you make a hotspot with Connectify, it delivers data using a single Wi-Fi connection, so there’s no need for a second adapter or for your laptop to be wired to the internet.

    One of the main advantages of Connectify over the ICS method is that the connection is more secure, using WPA2 encryption in Access Point Mode versus the very insecure WEP, which is what the ICS ad hoc networking mode does.

    Yet another method for Windows users is to use an app to share the laptop’s connection with the phone/tablet. Reverse Tether is one example of an app dedicated solely to this reverse tethering purpose, but it’s a very limited-time trial and hasn’t been updated since 2014, so it might not work for your phone or tablet.

    We have yet to see anything like this for the iPhone, but there may be a few apps available if you have a jailbroken iPhone.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    You can share your Mac’s internet connection with Internet Sharing. Similar to the Windows method above, this one is built-in to macOS and is accomplished through the Sharing window in System Preferences.

    This internet sharing tool works by sharing your wired or mobile connection with other computers, smartphones, or tablets, which connect to the laptop over Wi-Fi or Ethernet.

    Alternative: Wireless Travel Routers

    If none of the above internet sharing options are working, or you want another option, a travel router might be what you’re after.

    With a wireless travel router, you can share a single wired, wireless, or mobile data connection with multiple devices. As the name implies, these devices are pocketable and often affordable.

    Why Reverse Tether?

    Data access sometimes isn’t available, or maybe you need to conserve your mobile data usage to avoid data roaming charges when traveling, or overage fees on tiered or prepaid data plans.

    Sharing your laptop’s internet connection may make sense when:

    • You want a more secure internet connection than unsecured public Wi-Fi, but you don’t have access to mobile data.
    • You’re working in an office where only laptop Wi-Fi connections or Ethernet connections are allowed, and mobile phone usage is blocked.
    • You want faster internet access than what you’re getting on your mobile connection.
    • You’re traveling and the hotel only provides a single wired Ethernet connection.

    When sharing your laptop’s connection over ​Wi-Fi, you’re essentially turning your laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot for all who know the security code to use. It’s important to make sure the hotspot is secure so that nobody can access your network.

    Reverse-Tether ผ่าน Bluetooth

    สำหรับพีซี Windows คุณไม่จำเป็นต้องกังวลกับการสร้างเครือข่ายพื้นที่ส่วนบุคคลบลูทู ธ (PAN) เลย คุณน่าจะดีกว่าเพียงแค่สร้างฮอตสปอต Wi-Fi และเชื่อมต่อกับมันจาก iPhone หรือ iPad ของคุณ.

    บน Mac การสร้าง Bluetooth PAN เป็นวิธีที่มีประโยชน์ในการแบ่งปันการเชื่อมต่ออินเทอร์เน็ต Wi-Fi ที่ Mac ของคุณเชื่อมต่ออยู่ สิ่งนี้มีประโยชน์เมื่อคุณไม่สามารถรับ iPhone หรือ iPad ออนไลน์ผ่าน Wi-Fi – บางทีคุณอาจมีเพียงการเข้าสู่ระบบเครือข่ายเดียวและคุณสามารถมีอุปกรณ์ได้ครั้งละหนึ่งเครื่องเท่านั้น สิ่งนี้มักเกิดขึ้นกับเครือข่าย Wi-Fi ของโรงแรม.

    หากต้องการทำสิ่งนี้ให้เปิดแผงการแชร์ในหน้าต่างการตั้งค่าระบบบอกเครื่อง Mac ของคุณว่าคุณต้องการแชร์การเชื่อมต่อ Wi-Fi และเลือกบลูทู ธ จับคู่ iPhone หรือ iPad ของคุณกับคอมพิวเตอร์ผ่าน Bluetooth และจะเข้าถึงอินเทอร์เน็ตผ่านการเชื่อมต่อ Bluetooth.

    USB Reverse-Tethering – สำหรับ Jailbreakers เท่านั้น

    คุณสามารถโยงแล็ปท็อป Mac หรือ Windows ของคุณไปยัง iPhone หรือ iPad ของคุณผ่านสาย USB เพื่อเข้าถึงอินเทอร์เน็ตผ่านโทรศัพท์หรือแท็บเล็ตผ่านสาย USB.

    ดังนั้นคุณสามารถย้อนกลับไปแชร์ iPhone หรือ iPad กับ Mac หรือ Windows PC ผ่าน USB เพื่อเข้าถึงการเชื่อมต่อ Intenret ของคอมพิวเตอร์จากโทรศัพท์หรือแท็บเล็ตของคุณได้หรือไม่? มันฟังดูสมเหตุสมผล แต่โดยปกติคุณไม่สามารถทำได้.

    เช่นเดียวกับสิ่งต่าง ๆ ที่คุณไม่สามารถทำได้บน iPhone หรือ iPad โดยปกติคุณสามารถทำได้หากคุณเจลเบรคอุปกรณ์และออกนอกเส้นทางเพื่อแฮ็ค.

    แต่เราไม่ขอแนะนำให้ลองสิ่งนี้ แทนที่จะกลับมาแชร์ผ่านสาย USB เพียงแค่สร้างฮอตสปอต Wi-Fi หรือบลูทู ธ PAN เพื่อแชร์การเชื่อมต่ออินเทอร์เน็ตของ Mac หรือ Windows PC กับ iPhone หรือ iPad ของคุณ มันจะทำงานโดยไม่ต้องมีการแหกคุกหรือแฮ็ก แน่นอนว่าการเชื่อมต่อผ่านสายอาจเร็วกว่าในทางเทคนิค แต่การเชื่อมต่อแบบไร้สายน่าจะดีพอ.

    วิธีการเดียวกันเหล่านี้สามารถใช้เพื่อแบ่งปันการเชื่อมต่ออินเทอร์เน็ตจากระบบปฏิบัติการอื่นได้เช่นกัน ตัวอย่างเช่นพีซี Linux ยังเสนอความสามารถในการสร้างฮอตสปอต Wi-Fi และคุณสามารถเชื่อมต่อ iPhone หรือ iPad กับฮอตสปอตผ่าน Wi-Fi ได้.

Bet kartais norėtumėte gauti savo “iPhone” ar “iPad” internetu per kompiuterį arba “Mac”.

    Tai labiausiai naudinga, kai esate rajone, kurioje yra mažai signalo stiprumo – galbūt, jei neturite “Wi-Fi” signalo ir turėsite tik Ethernet ryšį. Arba negalėsite prijungti savo “iPhone” ar “iPad” į vietinį “Wi-Fi” tinklą.

    “Wi-Fi” prisegimas gali būti geriausia idėja, nes “Wi-Fi” viešosios interneto prieigos taško kūrimas jūsų telefone yra geras būdas bendrinti mobiliojo ryšio duomenų ryšį. Jei negalite gauti savo “iPhone” ar “iPad” internetu, nes prie jūsų nėra “Wi-Fi” signalo ir turite prijungti nešiojamąjį kompiuterį ar kompiuterį prie senamadiško laidinio Ethernet ryšio, tai gali būti naudinga.

    “Windows” “PC”, galite naudoti “Internet Connection Sharing” funkciją ir sukurti “Wi-Fi” viešosios interneto prieigos tašką. Prijunkite savo “iOS” įrenginį prie savo nešiojamojo kompiuterio (arba kompiuterio, jei jis turi “Wi-Fi” aparatinę įrangą) pateiktą viešosios interneto prieigos tašką. Tada galite prisijungti per laidinį Ethernet ryšį.

    “Windows” kompiuteryje taip pat galite bendrinti “Wi- Fi “tinkle, prie kurio esate prisijungę prie” Wi-Fi “. Jums reikės naudoti “Virtual Router” programinę įrangą, kad savo “Windows” nešiojamą kompiuterį paverstų “Wi-Fi” viešosios interneto prieigos tašku.

    USB-omvendt binding – Kun til jailbreakers

    Du kan binde din Mac eller Windows-laptop til din iPhone eller iPad via et USB-kabel, få adgang til internettet via telefonen eller tablet’en via USB-kablet.

    Så kan du omdrejge en iPhone eller iPad til en Mac eller Windows PC via USB, og få adgang til computerens Intenret forbindelse fra din telefon eller tablet? Det lyder logisk, men det kan du normalt ikke gøre.

    Ligesom alle slags ting, du normalt ikke kan gøre på en iPhone eller iPad, kan du sandsynligvis gøre det, hvis du jailbreak enheden og gå ud af din vej til hack rundt.

    Men vi anbefaler ikke at prøve dette. I stedet for omvendt tethering via et USB-kabel skal du bare oprette et Wi-Fi-hotspot eller en Bluetooth PAN til at dele din Mac eller Windows PCs internetforbindelse med din iPhone eller iPad. Det vil fungere uden nogen jailbreaking eller hacks kræves. Sikker på, at en kablet forbindelse måske er teknisk hurtigere, men den trådløse skal være god nok.

    Disse samme metoder kan også bruges til at dele en internetforbindelse fra andre operativsystemer. Eksempelvis tilbyder Linux-pc’er også mulighed for at oprette Wi-Fi-hotspots, og du kan forbinde din iPhone eller iPad med det pågældende hotspot via Wi-Fi.

    Tiêu chuẩn liên kết với nhau liên quan đến việc kết nối điện thoại, máy tính bảng hoặc thiết bị khác với điện thoại thông minh của bạn, chia sẻ kết nối dữ liệu di động của điện thoại thông minh với các thiết bị khác. Nhưng đôi khi bạn có thể muốn nhận iPhone hoặc iPad trực tuyến thông qua PC hoặc Mac.

    Điều này hữu ích nhất khi bạn ở khu vực có cường độ tín hiệu thấp – có lẽ nếu bạn không có tín hiệu Wi-Fi và chỉ có sẵn kết nối Ethernet cho bạn. Hoặc, bạn có thể không thể kết nối iPhone hoặc iPad với mạng Wi-Fi cục bộ.

    Đảo ngược qua Wi-Fi

    Chia sẻ kết nối Wi-Fi có thể là ý tưởng tốt nhất, giống như việc tạo một điểm truy cập Wi-Fi trên điện thoại của bạn là một cách tốt để chia sẻ kết nối dữ liệu di động của nó. Nếu bạn không thể truy cập iPhone hoặc iPad trực tuyến vì không có tín hiệu Wi-Fi gần bạn và bạn phải kết nối máy tính xách tay hoặc PC với kết nối Ethernet có dây kiểu cũ, điều này có thể hoạt động tốt.

    Trên PC Windows, bạn có thể sử dụng tính năng Chia sẻ kết nối Internet và tạo điểm phát sóng Wi-Fi. Kết nối thiết bị iOS của bạn với điểm phát sóng được cung cấp bởi máy tính xách tay của bạn (hoặc máy tính để bàn, nếu thiết bị có phần cứng Wi-Fi) và sau đó bạn có thể truy cập trực tuyến qua kết nối Ethernet có dây.

    Với PC Windows, bạn cũng có thể chia sẻ mạng Wi-Fi mà bạn đã kết nối qua Wi-Fi. Bạn sẽ chỉ cần sử dụng phần mềm Bộ định tuyến ảo để biến máy tính xách tay Windows của bạn thành một điểm truy cập Wi-Fi.

    Không giống như trên PC Windows, máy Mac của bạn không thể chia sẻ kết nối Wi-Fi mà nó được kết nối bằng cách tạo điểm phát sóng Wi-Fi. Nó chỉ có thể thực hiện một việc tại một thời điểm với một bộ điều hợp Wi-Fi vật lý. Tuy nhiên, bạn có thể thực hiện việc này bằng cách mua thêm các thiết bị USB-Wi-Fi, cung cấp cho máy Mac của bạn nhiều giao diện Wi-Fi.

    Đảo ngược qua Bluetooth

    Trên PC Windows, bạn không cần phải bận tâm đến việc tạo mạng khu vực cá nhân Bluetooth (PAN). Có lẽ bạn sẽ tốt hơn nếu chỉ tạo một điểm truy cập Wi-Fi và kết nối với nó từ iPhone hoặc iPad của bạn.

    Trên máy Mac, tạo Bluetooth PAN là một cách hữu ích để chia sẻ kết nối Internet Wi-Fi mà máy Mac của bạn được kết nối. Điều này hữu ích khi bạn không thể truy cập iPhone hoặc iPad trực tuyến qua Wi-Fi – có lẽ bạn chỉ có một lần đăng nhập vào mạng và bạn chỉ có thể có một thiết bị trực tuyến tại một thời điểm. Điều này thường xảy ra trên các mạng Wi-Fi của khách sạn.

    Để thực hiện việc này, hãy mở bảng Chia sẻ trong cửa sổ Tùy chọn hệ thống, cho Mac biết bạn muốn chia sẻ kết nối Wi-Fi của nó và chọn Bluetooth. Ghép nối iPhone hoặc iPad của bạn với máy tính qua Bluetooth và thiết bị sẽ truy cập Internet thông qua kết nối Bluetooth.

    Kết nối ngược USB – Chỉ dành cho Bẻ khóa

    Bạn có thể kết nối máy tính xách tay Mac hoặc Windows với iPhone hoặc iPad thông qua cáp USB, truy cập Internet thông qua điện thoại hoặc máy tính bảng thông qua cáp USB.

    Vì vậy, bạn có thể đảo ngược iPhone hoặc iPad với máy Mac hoặc PC Windows qua USB, có quyền truy cập vào kết nối Intenret của máy tính từ điện thoại hoặc máy tính bảng của bạn không? Nghe có vẻ hợp lý, nhưng bạn thường không thể làm điều này.

    Giống như tất cả những điều bạn thường không thể làm trên iPhone hoặc iPad, bạn có thể làm điều này nếu bạn bẻ khóa thiết bị và tránh đường để hack xung quanh.

    Nhưng chúng tôi không khuyên bạn nên thử điều này. Thay vì kết nối ngược qua cáp USB, chỉ cần tạo một điểm truy cập Wi-Fi hoặc Bluetooth PAN để chia sẻ kết nối Internet của máy Mac hoặc Windows PC với iPhone hoặc iPad. Nó sẽ hoạt động mà không cần bẻ khóa hay hack. Chắc chắn, kết nối có dây về mặt kỹ thuật có thể nhanh hơn, nhưng kết nối không dây phải đủ tốt.

    Những phương pháp tương tự này cũng có thể được sử dụng để chia sẻ kết nối Internet từ các hệ điều hành khác. Ví dụ: PC Linux cũng cung cấp khả năng tạo các điểm truy cập Wi-Fi và bạn có thể kết nối iPhone hoặc iPad với điểm phát sóng đó qua Wi-Fi.

    Стандартне “прив’язування” передбачає підключення телефону, планшета або іншого пристрою до смартфона, обмін мобільним з’єднанням смартфона з іншими пристроями. Але іноді ви можете отримати свій iPhone або iPad онлайн через комп’ютер або Mac.

    Це дуже корисно, коли ви перебуваєте в області з низьким рівнем сигналу – можливо, якщо у вас немає сигналу Wi-Fi і є лише доступне з’єднання Ethernet. Або ви не зможете підключити свій iPhone або iPad до локальної мережі Wi-Fi.

    Зворотний зв’язок через Wi-Fi

    Найкраща ідея може бути прив’язка Wi-Fi, так як створення точок доступу Wi-Fi на вашому телефоні – це хороший спосіб обмінюватися мобільним з’єднанням даних. Якщо ви не можете отримати свій iPhone або iPad онлайн, тому що немає сигналу Wi-Fi поруч із вами, і вам потрібно підключити свій ноутбук або ПК до старомодної дротової мережі Ethernet, це може добре.

    На ПК з ОС Windows можна використовувати функцію спільного доступу до Інтернету та створити точку доступу Wi-Fi. Підключіть пристрій iOS до точки доступу, що надається вашим ноутбуком (або робочим столом, якщо він обладнано обладнанням Wi-Fi), а потім можна підключитися до Інтернету через підключення до мережі Ethernet.

    За допомогою ПК з ОС Windows можна також спільно користуватися мережею Wi-Fi, до якої ви підключені через Wi-Fi. Вам просто потрібно використовувати програмне забезпечення Virtual Router, щоб перетворити ваш ноутбук на Windows у точку доступу Wi-Fi.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    На комп’ютері Mac можна використовувати панель “Спільний доступ” у вікні “Системні налаштування”, щоб увімкнути обмін в Інтернеті через Wi-Fi, обмінюючись проводовим підключенням до мережі Ethernet через точку доступу Wi-Fi.

    На відміну від комп’ютера з ОС Windows, ваш Mac не може спільно використовувати підключення Wi-Fi, підключене до нього, створивши точку доступу Wi-Fi. Він може робити тільки одну річ з одним фізичним Wi-Fi адаптером. Однак, це можна зробити, придбавши додаткові пристрої USB-to-Wi-Fi, надаючи вашим Mac кілька інтерфейсів Wi-Fi.

    Зворотний зв’язок через Bluetooth

    На ПК з ОС Windows взагалі не потрібно турбуватися про створення персональної мережі Bluetooth (PAN). Напевно, краще всього створити точку доступу Wi-Fi і підключитися до неї з вашого iPhone або iPad.

    На комп’ютері з ОС Mac створення Bluetooth PAN є корисним способом спільного використання підключення до Інтернету Wi-Fi, до якого підключено Mac. Це корисно, коли ви не можете отримати свій iPhone або iPad онлайн через Wi-Fi – можливо, ви маєте лише один вхід до мережі, і ви можете мати лише один пристрій в режимі онлайн. Це часто відбувається на мережах Wi-Fi готелю.

    Для цього відкрийте панель “Спільний доступ” у вікні “Системні налаштування”, повідомте своєму комп’ютеру Mac про спільне використання Wi-Fi і виберіть Bluetooth. З’єднайте свій iPhone або iPad з комп’ютером через Bluetooth, і він отримає доступ до Інтернету через з’єднання Bluetooth.

    USB-зворотне мовлення – тільки для джейлбрейкерів

    Можна прив’язати ноутбук Mac або Windows до свого iPhone або iPad за допомогою кабелю USB, отримуючи доступ до Інтернету через телефон або планшет за допомогою кабелю USB.

    Отже, ви можете повернути iPhone або iPad до комп’ютера Mac або Windows за допомогою USB, отримавши доступ до з’єднання Intenret комп’ютера з телефону або планшета? Це звучить логічно, але ви не можете цього зробити.

    Як і всілякі речі, які ви звичайно не можете робити на iPhone або iPad, ви, ймовірно, можете зробити це, якщо ви втечате з в’язниці в пристрій і виходите зі свого шляху..

    Але ми не рекомендуємо спробувати це. Замість зворотного прив’язки через кабель USB, просто створіть точку доступу Wi-Fi або Bluetooth PAN, щоб надати доступ до Інтернету комп’ютером Mac або Windows за допомогою iPhone або iPad. Це буде працювати без будь-яких джейлбрейку або хакі. Звичайно, провідне з’єднання може бути технічно швидше, але бездротовий повинен бути досить хорошим.

    Ці ж методи можна використовувати для спільного використання підключення до Інтернету з іншими операційними системами. Наприклад, комп’ютери з Linux також надають можливість створювати точки доступу Wi-Fi, і ви можете підключити свій iPhone або iPad до цієї точки доступу через Wi-Fi.

    Na rozdíl od počítače se systémem Windows nemůže systém Mac sdílet připojení Wi-Fi k němuž je připojen vytvořením hotspotu Wi-Fi. S jediným fyzickým adaptérem Wi-Fi můžete dělat jen jednu věc. Můžete to však udělat zakoupením dalších zařízení USB-to-Wi-Fi, které poskytují vašemu Mac více Wi-Fi rozhraní.

    Reverse-Tether Over Bluetooth

    SOUVISEJÍCÍ: Počítač, tablet nebo telefon

    V počítači se systémem Windows byste neměli obtěžovat vytváření osobní sítě Bluetooth (PAN) vůbec. Pravděpodobně bude lepší, když vytvoříte hotspot Wi-Fi a připojíte se k němu z vašeho iPhone nebo iPadu.

    Na Macu je vytváření Bluetooth PAN užitečným způsobem, jak sdílet připojení k síti Wi-Fi, vaše Mac je připojen k. To je užitečné, pokud nemůžete svůj iPhone nebo iPad připojit přes Wi-Fi online – možná máte pouze jedno přihlášení k síti a můžete mít pouze jedno zařízení online najednou. To se často děje v síti hotelových sítí Wi-Fi.

    Chcete-li to provést, otevřete v okně Systémové předvolby panel Sdílení, řekněte počítači Mac, který chcete sdílet s jeho Wi-Fi připojením, a vyberte položku Bluetooth. Spárování iPhone nebo iPadu s počítačem přes Bluetooth a získá přístup na internet prostřednictvím připojení Bluetooth.

    USB Reverse-Tethering – Pouze pro útěk z vězení

    Váš laptop Mac nebo Windows můžete propojit s iPhone nebo iPad pomocí kabelu USB, získáte přístup přes internet přes telefon nebo tablet přes kabel USB.

    Můžete tedy převrátit iPhone nebo iPad na PC Mac nebo Windows přes USB a získat přístup k počítači Intenret připojení z telefonu nebo tabletu? Zdá se to logické, ale normálně to nemůžete udělat.

    Stejně jako všechny věci, které obvykle nemáte na iPhone nebo iPadu, to můžete pravděpodobně dělat, pokud útočíte zařízení a vyjedete z cesty hack.

    Ale nedoporučujeme to zkusit. Namísto zpětného propojení přes kabel USB stačí vytvořit hotspot Wi-Fi nebo Bluetooth PAN pro sdílení připojení počítače Mac nebo Windows PC k vašemu iPhone nebo iPadu. Bude fungovat bez jakýchkoli útěk z jailu nebo hacků. Jistě, kabelové připojení může být technicky rychlejší, ale bezdrátové by mělo být dost dobré.

    Stejné metody lze použít k sdílení připojení k Internetu z jiných operačních systémů. Například Linux PC nabízí také možnost vytvářet hotspoty Wi-Fi a můžete připojit svůj iPhone nebo iPad k tomuto hotspotu přes Wi-Fi.

    If you have a Wi-Fi only iPad, or any internet capable device, you can easily use your iPhone’s personal hotspot feature to get online.

    Many carriers support the personal hotspot feature, as long as you’ve got a compatible data plan. Once you’re connected to your iPhone, you can browse the web, send iMessages, download apps, and do anything you’d normally be able to do on your iPad while connected to Wi-Fi.

    How to connect your iPad to an iPhone personal hotspot

    1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.
    2. Tap on Personal Hotspot.

    Tap on the toggle to turn Personal Hotspot On. Create a password for your personal hotspot in the password field. This prevents unauthorized users from using your iPhone’s data.

    Tap on Wi-Fi.

    Join your iPhone’s network like you would any other Wi-Fi network. The network name will be the name of your iPhone. Instead of Wi-Fi bars, you should see an interlink icon next to it, which makes it easier to pick out from other Wi-Fi networks.

    Not only can you connect your iPad to your iPhone’s personal hotspot, but any other device including a Mac, PC, or any other device that has Wi-Fi built in. Most carriers allow you to connect up to 10 devices at a time, but that may vary depending on what plan you have and who you have service through.

    Just keep in mind that using tethering will cause you to go through your data plan faster. It can also drain your iPhone’s battery significantly fast.

    What about Instant Hotspot?

    With Instant Hotspot, the Personal Hotspot on your iPhone or iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular) can provide Internet access to a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch without requiring you to enter the password on those devices. (Apple)

    Instant Hotpot happens when:

    Your iPhone or iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular) has an activated carrier plan providing Personal Hotspot service.

    Each device is signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID.

    Each device has Bluetooth turned on.

    Each device has Wi-Fi turned on.

    If you’re asked for a password when connecting, then not all of the above steps have been met.

    What do you think?

    Do you use personal hotspot often? Does having the ability to connect your iPad kept you from purchasing a cellular iPad? Why or why not?

    What to Know

    • Turn off Windows 11’s Wi-Fi and connect your smartphone via a USB cable.
    • Turn on iPhone’s Personal Hotspot via Settings >Personal Hotspot >Allow Others to Join.
    • Turn on Android’s Mobile Hotspot feature via Settings >Network & internet >Hotspot & Tethering >USB tethering.

    On this page, you’ll find the instructions for how to connect your Windows 11 device to your iPhone or Android’s internet connection by using the USB tethering feature. You’ll find detailed steps for how to enable tethering on mobile devices and several tips for what to do when the internet connection isn’t working properly.

    How Do I Enable USB Tethering on Windows 11?

    Here’s what you need to do to enable USB tethering on your smartphone to access its internet connection on your Windows 11 laptop, computer, tablet, or two-in-one device such as a Microsoft Surface.

    Turn off your Windows 11 device’s Wi-Fi so it won’t connect to any other networks. The fastest way to do this is to select the Wi-Fi icon in the taskbar.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Turn on your iPhone and activate Personal Hotspot. If you’re using an Android smartphone, switch it on and enable Mobile Hotspot.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Plug your smartphone into your Windows 11 laptop, tablet, or computer via a compatible USB cable.

    The Ethernet icon should appear in the Windows 11 taskbar near the clock once the connection is made. You can also check the USB tethering is working properly by opening Settings > Network & Internet.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Windows 11 doesn’t have an icon or switch for Ethernet and wired internet connections in the Action Center like it does for Wi-Fi.

    How Do I Enable USB Tethering?

    Enabling USB tethering on iPhone and Android is surprisingly simple and can be done in just a few taps.

    • On iPhone, open Settings and tap Personal Hotspot >Allow Others to Join.
    • If you’re using an Android smartphone, open Settings and tap Network & internet >Hotspot & Tethering >USB tethering.

    The exact phrasing may differ on Android depending on what device and version of the operating system you’re using. Despite what it’s called, it will look something like the above example and won’t look too different.

    Can I Use USB Tethering?

    Sharing the internet via USB tethering is a feature supported by Windows, iOS, and Android devices for a long while now so it’s likely that whichever devices you’re using will support it.

    Note you will need the following for USB tethering to work properly:

    • An active internet connection on your smartphone. Your regular 4G or 5G mobile service should be fine.
    • A compatible USB cable. The USB charging cable supplied with your smartphone should work.
    • A USB port on your Windows 11 device. You may need to unplug a mouse or keyboard to free up a USB port if you don’t have any spare ones.

    Some Windows 11 USB Tethering Tips and Fixes

    If you’re having trouble getting USB tethering to work properly in Windows 11, there are several things you can try.

    • Connect your iPhone to your Windows 11 computer. Download iTunes on your computer and open it while your iPhone is connected via USB. Follow the instructions on-screen to connect your devices. You will need to do this even if you’ve previously made the connection in Windows 7, 8, or 10.
    • Open iTunes. Sometimes opening the iTunes app on your Windows 11 device can trigger the connection to an iPhone if it’s not being detected.
    • Update the operating system on both devices. Updating Windows 11, Android, and iOS can fix a host of problems and bugs.
    • Update your phone drivers in Windows 11. Manually updating the drivers for your iPhone or Android mobile in Windows 11 has been known to fix USB tethering issues.
    • Use the Wi-Fi hotspot option. If you can’t get the USB tethering to work in Windows 11, try using the smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. It’s just as reliable as the USB tethering method and is a lot faster to initiate.

    To set up and use USB tethering in Windows 10, connect your iPhone or Android phone to your Windows 10 device with a USB cable. On an iPhone, turn on your Personal Hotspot; on an Android, turn on USB Tethering. Go to your Windows 10 device’s Network and Internet settings to verify the connection.

    To increase your USB tethering internet speed, try keeping your phone as still as possible to create a more stable internet connection. Also, use a metered connection with a data limit, make sure you’re using the latest USB generation, and use a manufacturer-recommended USB cable.

    Connect your Android phone directly to your PS4 via a USB cable. To change how your PS4 detects your Android device, choose Mass Storage Device instead of Media Device to allow USB tethering.

    I’m running Expo on my Mac for developing apps.

    I want to connect my iPhone, which runs my own app I’m developing, to the Expo server using USB tethering only – as I haven’t got a SIM card and WiFi is not an option either.

    How can I accomplish this?

    I can turn on internet sharing for “iPhone USB” but it doesn’t appear under “Preferences -> Network” Here’s the ifconfig output when I connect my iPhone in this entry gets added:

    In Sharing “Share your connection” I set it to Ethernet and wifi both gave the same ip.

    This is really quite simple – just plug the phone via a Lightning to USB cable into the Mac to get a network connection.

    The network connection will be between the iPhone and the Mac only. It is not by default an internet connection for the phone, but that is not needed for Expo development.

    On the Mac in System Preferences > Network, you’ll see the phone listed as “iPhone USB”. Click on “iPhone USB” and you’ll see the phone’s IP-address.

    If you have other means of connection enabled on the phone, you might need to remove the checkmark from “Disable unless needed” and click Apply – but apart from that, you automatically have a network connection to the Mac now.

    If you’re running a macOS version where you do not see it in the graphical interface, you can instead run this Terminal command:

    Compare the output before and after plugging in the iPhone, and you’ll see that a new network interface named “enXX” (where X’s are numbers) appears after plugging in the iPhone. The IP address listed is the IP address of your computer in this private network.

    Now to make sure that the Expo server uses this private network instead of your WiFi for communicating with the phone, you set its initial interface like this in the Terminal:

    Replace 169.254.246.125 with the actual IP address you see listed for your computer.

    If you also want to share the internet connection of your Mac with the phone, you can do that from System Preferences > Sharing > Internet Sharing. This enables NAT, so you will experience that the interface on your Mac, as well as the interface on your iPhone, now have different IP addresses, and you’ll need to update the commands above accordingly.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Sometimes we unable to have a direct Internet connection on the mobile phone or tablet due to different reasons. In the last link, we described another way to provide the Internet to mobile. But if we have a laptop, netbook or PC we can use its Internet connection on our mobile devices.

    We can connect mobile devices via:

    • It’s a preferable way because we don’t lose the ability of the mobile phone to be mobile.
    • If the computer doesn’t have a Wi-Fi adapter, we should obtain it. The price for it isn’t a big deal. The cheaper and smaller form-factor is USB. But there are PCMCI (for laptops) and PCI (for PC’s) adapters. So, we may choose what type is more preferable and convenient for us.
    • It’s used when we don’t have or can’t use the Wi-Fi adapter on the computer.
    • USB cable is required, and it should be included with our mobile device.
    • We might have to install software on mobile devices.
    • And here we limit our mobility by the length of a cable.
    • Finally, it’s supported on specific configurations.
    • It’s used when we have the same situation with the Wi-Fi adapter in the previous bullet point.
    • It requires having a Bluetooth adapter on the computer.
    • We save mobility but in a very shorter distance rather than Wi-Fi.
    • This way works with a limited number of configurations.
  • Below are technical descriptions of how to use PC’s Internet on

    Android phone and tablet#

    Use the Internet via Wi-Fi#

    • We should share the Internet on our laptop, netbook or PC through creating a Wi-Fi hotspot.
    • And after that, we need just to connect our android phone or tablet to the created Wi-Fi network.

    Use the Internet via USB#

    • Some earlier versions of Android have a special option “USB internet” in “Wireless & networks” section. Enable it and just follow the instructions.
    • If the device doesn’t have such option we may use special software like Reverse Tethering or Easy Tether. Notice that they are freemium and have some limitations. E.g. Reverse Tethering has a time limit and Easy Tether doesn’t work with secured (HTTPS) sites.
    • We need to install it on the mobile device and the computer. Follow each application instructions to properly set up the connection. When the application asks for type choose USB if applicable. Special software for computers emulates our android mobile as a separate network adapter. Through this application, we should enable connection to USB and after that share the Internet connection with new installed tether mobile adapter.

    Use the Internet via Bluetooth#

    There is no built-in way to do this. Android can be acting as Bluetooth modem to share its connection. But we can use the Easy Tether application from the previous point. It works with Bluetooth too.

    iPhone, iPad#

    Notice that also we can use the iPhone as a modem to share its connection to the computer.

    Use the Internet via Wi-Fi#

    • We should share the Internet on our laptop, netbook or PC through creating a Wi-Fi hotspot.
    • And after that, we need just to connect our iPhone or iPad to established Wi-Fi.

    Use the Internet via USB#

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    There is another way to get from not only Mac devices. But it‘s not the legitime way and we don’t recommend doing it. It requires jailbreak our device so it is our own risk.

    Use the Internet via Bluetooth#

    This works only with Mac computers. The steps are similar to connecting via USB.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

  • After that just pair via Bluetooth our Mac and the phone.
  • Notice that the reverse option is also available.

    Windows Phone#

    Use the Internet via Wi-Fi#

    We should share the Internet on our laptop, netbook or PC through creating a Wi-Fi hotspot. After that we able to join Windows Phone to new Wi-Fi.

    Use the Internet via USB#

    Unfortunately, we haven’t found a clear solution to do this. On Windows Phone 7 this option was available but in later versions, the vendor has removed it. But we might be interested in back operation when we are using a phone as USB modem.

    Use the Internet via Bluetooth#

    Unluckily, we haven’t found any way to do this. But there is Bluetooth tethering to PC.

  • AppleInsider has a report from AT&T stating that tethering will not work between an iPad and iPhone (over either Bluetooth or USB/Dock). Thus, if the iPhone won’t work as a WiFi hotspot then you may not be able to use the iPhone’s 3G data plan to provide mobile service to an iPad.

    AT&T is pointing their finger at Apple, but this could be a real blow to all those iPhone users who were considering using their iPhone to provide 3G network access to their new iPads. Frankly, I was considering doing that since I don’t use anything near 2GB/month and if I could tether my iPad to my iPhone I could just pay the extra $20 tethering fee rather than pay $25 extra to get the 3G plan for my iPad 3G (and, I could also tether to my MacBook which would be another advantage to the $20 tethering plan on the iPhone). Of course, those with the WiFi-only version of the iPad (and an iPhone) may really be getting a kick in the teeth.

    Just wait till WWDC. Jobs is likely to explain everything there.

    As for ATT, they are right about how iPad don’t have the code for the USB/Bluetooth tethering. It is likely possible Apple could release an update to support it. This could be the reason why we haven’t seen any new firmware update to fix the WiFi issues on the iPads, Apple wants the WWDC first before doing so, to prevent the information about tethering support leaked.

  • Because ATT didn’t have a choice? They were getting calls about this and somebody asked this specifically and ATT pointed at Apple for this. What exactly did you expect ATT to say? “No comment” would’ve just add more confusion and more outrage at ATT instead of Apple.

    ATT said that the iPad/iPhone isn’t possible because of Apple, not because of ATT. Its up to Apple to enable this feature in iPad to support iPhone tethering.

    In order to use iPhone tethering from a Mac or PC, the computer must be able to connect to the iPhone via USB or Bluetooth, and must support a network connection over that interface.

    While the iPad includes Bluetooth hardware, it is not yet known if it will support a network uplink connection over Bluetooth (known as a “Wireless iAP”). The iPhone OS does not currently enable this as a feature so it is doubtful the iPad will, particularly given Jobs flat out “no” answer to tethering. Bluetooth support in iPhone OS devices is also limited in many other respects.

    Being able to access an iAP within the iPhone OS (a “reverse tether”) would allow iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users to connect to and share an iPhone or computer’s Internet access via Bluetooth, rather than only over a mobile EDGE/3G network or over WiFi hotspot. That’s not currently possible.

    The iPhone OS also offers no support for “reverse tethering” over USB, shutting down the other avenue for connecting an iPad to an iPhone with tethering enabled. The iPhone OS also does not support acting as a gateway to share its mobile Internet access over WiFi to other computers, even though iPhone OS devices can all access any WiFi hotspot.

    Apple has made no comments about the iPad’s ability to tether its 3G access (allowing a computer to share the iPad’s mobile access data plan), likely because it is not intended to do so. The data plan on the iPad is priced so much lower than most general purpose 3G dongle plans that it appears clear that AT&T does not expect users to be sharing it for general use from other computers.

    iOS 11.4.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch includes a new security feature called USB Restricted Mode. It’s designed to keep hackers out of your iOS device and it’s enabled by default. Here’s how to find the setting and, if you need to, change it.

    USB Restricted Mode blocks iPhones and iPads from connecting to computers and other devices if they haven’t been unlocked for more than an hour. That effectively kills hardware hacks that rely on connecting a USB cable to the device’s Lightning port.

    The feature is part of iOS 11.4.1, and will be in iOS 12, too. Here’s how to find the USB Restricted Mode setting, and how to turn it on or off:

    • Launch Settings on your iOS device
    • Tap Face ID & Passcode (iPhone X) or Touch ID & Passcode
    • Enter your device passcode to continue
    • Scroll down to USB Accessories

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or macUSB Restricted Mode is enabled when USB Accessories is turned off

    You’ll see the setting is turned off by default, which is good but a little confusing. That means USB Restricted Mode is active. Toggling the setting on leaves USB access enabled even if you haven’t unlocked your device in more than an hour.

    Leaving USB Accessories at its default setting (Off) is smart because it increases your iOS device security by shrinking the window where someone can try a hardware hack. That’s bad news for anyone who steals your iPhone or iPad and wants to wipe it and resell it. It’s also bad news for law enforcement because it means companies like Grayshift and Celebrite won’t have effective hacks into our phones.

    If you’re a developer testing your latest app or iPhone accessory, however, turnning USB Accessories on could make sense. It’ll let you access your test devices without continually entering your passcode. For everyone else, don’t mess with the setting.

    I have an iMac, connected to the Internet via Ethernet, and an iPhone 4. I would like to share the iMac’s Internet connection to my iPhone via the USB Cable (because my wife dreams of a wifi-less household).

    The method you described will share your Internet connection to your iPhone on recent Macs and iPhones. Specifically, on macOS Sierra, follow the instructions in the Apple Support Article, macOS Sierra: Share the Internet connection on your Mac but choose to share your Internet to computers using iPhone USB.

    On your Mac, open System Preferences and click on Sharing.

    Enable Internet Sharing by clicking the checkbox.

    In the Share your connection from pop-up menu, select Ethernet (or Thunderbolt Ethernet on MacBooks using the Thunderbolt-Ethernet adapter).

    In the To computers using list, select iPhone USB.

    This works on macOS 10.12 and iOS 10 without needing a jailbreak or other app.

    Later macOS 10.13 enhanced this feature as part of asset caching and Apple Configurator 2 features for multiple iOS devices sharing the Mac network. This is out of the box support, built in to the OS with no extra first party apps or modifications needed.

    Before iOS 10 and macOS 10.13, USB tethering only worked in one direction or for one device. Before macOS 10.12 – internet service used to flow out of iOS but not in to iOS from a Mac over USB.

    Before iOS 10, the only method that existed would be possible with a jailbroken device as Apple didn’t offer this feature before then.

    It is possible by using Apple’s development tool what is usually used to intercept app’s traffic, but it also do iPhone→Mac→Internet tethering.

    Remote Packet Capture for iOS devices is about sniffing apps’ traffic, but there is also easy step-by-step guide how to send traffic throught Mac. Just follow paragraphs between “Remote Virtual Interfaces” and “Using tcpdump” headers.

    If command rvictl is missing in your computer, you probably need to install the command line tools included in Xcode.

    I can share my MacBook Pro’s (macOS Sierra) wi-fi internet connection to my iPhone SE (iOS 10.3.3) without trouble. There’s no special setting on the iPhone. Just turn off wi-fi on the phone and it automatically connects to the internet via a USB->Lightning cable to the MacBook Pro.

    I had no success with my old iPhone 4S, which could really benefit from internet sharing via USB because its wi-fi antenna periodically craps out, and I have to revive it with a hairdryer and freezer, which can be inconvenient, especially on the road.

    You used to be able to do Bluetooth PAN sharing to all iDevices. Now, it appears it works sporadically for iPad device only. Most iPhones are reported as not working. It was working at one point, and Genius Bar verified that it is no longer supported. Apple may view their icloud functionality as trumping and making computer-to-iDevice connections unnecessary.

    you can also share IMac Ethernet to Ipad/Iphone over an addtional Ethernet cable, but it requires second Ethernet port /Ethernet Switch, a powered USB Hub and an additional Ethernet Adapter, plus a standard micro/usb cable, as shown here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKp02y4JXVs Not very elegant, but functional. Blutooth Tethering works also, but mainly with Ipads and Android Devices.

    You may have to reboot your Mac. Share Ethernet via Wifi (do not tell your wife) When it works, the wifi icon on the Mac is a fan with an exclamation mark on it.

    What you’ve described works for me (I’m sharing the Mac’s Wi-Fi via USB iPhone). But it didn’t work until I turned off both Wi-Fi and Mobile Data in my iPhone settings.

    With Mobile Data turned off there’s no indication in the top bar that anything is connected, but the internet is shared and works well!

    This is using an M1 Macbook Air with macOS Big Sur, and iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 14.6.

    Yes you can share your ethernet, usb dongle internet with your iphone/ipad devices. Just came across this how-to: How to share a Wi-Fi connection from a Mac to an iPhone. Hope this helps for you and other folks who are facing this issue.

    The iTether app has arrived in the app store and it enables a user to tether their iPhone to a Mac or PC and use its data connection. The app does not appear to require a tethering data plan with your carrier so it is really a surprise that this app has been approved by Apple; it may be that its life is short lived. If you have been waiting for a way to tether your iPhone without the need to jailbreak or pay extra for the privilege, don’t hang about with this one.

    Tether is an application that allows your Mac and PC to take advantage of your smartphone’s data plan, providing you access to the Internet on your laptop anywhere there is cellular coverage from your smartphone. Tether is easy to install, easy to use, works practically anywhere, and is very cost-effective.

    The iTether app requires a small program to be installed on the PC or Mac as well as the app on the iPhone. Once both are installed, plug in your USB cable and then you can use your iPhone’s data connection to surf the web, check email etc. A word of warning, a carrier may be able to see that your data connection is being used in this way and attempt to charge you an additional fee for the data.

    iTether is available in the App Store for a price of $14.99.

    My personal go-to is a different mirroring process called tethering.

    During classes, workshops, and talks, I regularly find myself needing to mirror my iPad or iPhone (iOS devices) for demonstration purposes. Mirroring your device means everything you do on your device will be reflected somewhere else: your laptop, a projector, tv, etc… You can wirelessly connect via Airplay, Chromecast, Reflector, or Vysor. Sometimes we find ourselves in places where the WiFi is not super reliable and mirroring our devices wirelessly is just not that good. My personal go-to is a different mirroring process called tethering. To tether your iOS device you will use your USB charger plugged directly into a MacBook.

    If iTunes pops up, you can close it immediately. You will need to tell your iOS device to “trust” the computer you have plugged into. Next, you will need to open Quicktime on your MacBook and select “New Movie Recording.”

    To enable your iOS device to be mirrored, you will need to select your iPad as the Camera.

    This will allow you to mirror your iOS through a stable tethered connection. You can now connect your MacBook to another projection device and display your iOS device. Happy Mirroring!

    Steve Jobs appears to have fired off a tersely worded email reply to a user in Sweden who asked whether the WiFi-only iPad could be tethered to the iPhone: “No.”

    Jezper Söderlund of the Swedish website Slashat.se reports that he sent Apple’s chief executive an email identifying himself as an Apple customer before adding, “I’m also awaiting the release of the iPad. However, I have one question: Will the wifi-only version somehow support tethering thru my iPhone?”

    The full email headers Söderlund forwarded to AppleInsider appear to indicate that Jobs sent his one word reply at 8:30 AM from his iPhone.

    Whether one can tether

    Apple currently supports Bluetooth and USB (but not WiFi) tethering to share an iPhone’s 3G mobile signal with another computer in iPhone 3.x software. However, enabling the feature requires approval from the carrier.

    AT&T does not allow iPhone tethering in the US, nor do some other iPhone carriers in other regions. Well over a year ago in late 2008, AT&T executive Ralph De La Vega said that iPhone tethering was coming “soon.”

    Apple introduced the technical capacity to tether with the iPhone 3.0 firmware in mid 2009, but AT&T failed to deliver any progress in approving an iPhone tethering plan for its subscribers throughout 2009, and has yet to even provide an update on when that will happen.

    Tethering the iPad to an iPhone

    In order to use iPhone tethering from a Mac or PC, the computer must be able to connect to the iPhone via USB or Bluetooth, and must support a network connection over that interface.

    While the iPad includes Bluetooth hardware, it is not yet known if it will support a network uplink connection over Bluetooth (known as a “Wireless iAP”). The iPhone OS does not currently enable this as a feature so it is doubtful the iPad will, particularly given Jobs flat out “no” answer to tethering. Bluetooth support in iPhone OS devices is also limited in many other respects.

    Being able to access an iAP within the iPhone OS (a “reverse tether”) would allow iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users to connect to and share an iPhone or computer’s Internet access via Bluetooth, rather than only over a mobile EDGE/3G network or over WiFi hotspot. That’s not currently possible.

    The iPhone OS also offers no support for “reverse tethering” over USB, shutting down the other avenue for connecting an iPad to an iPhone with tethering enabled. The iPhone OS also does not support acting as a gateway to share its mobile Internet access over WiFi to other computers, even though iPhone OS devices can all access any WiFi hotspot.

    Apple has made no comments about the iPad’s ability to tether its 3G access (allowing a computer to share the iPad’s mobile access data plan), likely because it is not intended to do so. The data plan on the iPad is priced so much lower than most general purpose 3G dongle plans that it appears clear that AT&T does not expect users to be sharing it for general use from other computers.

    To tether your Windows 10 PC to your phone:

    1. Enable your Wi-Fi hotspot in your phone’s settings.
    2. Use Windows 10’s Wi-Fi settings menu in the system tray to connect to your hotspot.

    Stuck with patchy public internet, or no Wi-Fi at all? If your mobile plan supports tethering, there’s no reason why you can’t still work while on the go. In this guide, we’ll show you how to connect your PC to your phone, giving you 4G/5G internet on a Windows 10 device without its own SIM. If instead, you need to share your PC’s internet connection with other devices by using it as a mobile hotspot, check out this guide.

    The steps you’ll need to follow depend on which phone platform you use. We’ll cover iOS in the section immediately below. If you use Android, skip down the page to find the relevant steps.

    Enabling tethering on iOS

    On iPhone, open the Settings app and tap “Personal Hotspot” to start configuring your Wi-Fi access point. Tap the “Personal Hotspot” toggle button to turn on your hotspot.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    You can change your hotspot’s password by tapping the “Wi-Fi Password” field. iOS defaults to using a strong password so you won’t necessarily need to change this. Tap the blue “Save” button at the top of the password settings screen to save your changes.

    Enabling tethering on Android

    On an Android device, open the Settings app and head to the “Network & internet” category. The screens you see may look slightly different depending on your Android version and device manufacturer. If you don’t see the same screens at all, you should refer to your manufacturer’s documentation.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    From the “Network & internet” page, tap the “Hotspot & tethering” button to view the mobile hotspot settings. Next, press the “Wi-Fi hotspot” button to customise the hotspot’s settings.

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Tap the toggle button at the top of the page to turn your hotspot on. Use the settings on the page to rename your Wi-Fi hotspot (its SSID) or change the password.

    Connecting to your hotspot

    Now you’re ready to switch back to your Windows 10 PC. Make sure your Wi-Fi is turned on (you can check by opening Action Centre with Win+A and looking for the “Wi-Fi” settings tile).

    How to reverse tether an iphone or ipad to your pc or mac

    Next, open the Wi-Fi networks list by clicking the Wi-Fi icon in the system tray. After a few moments, you should see your phone’s hotspot appear in the list. Android devices will appear as the name you set on the hotspot settings page; iOS devices show up as their device name.

    Tap the Wi-Fi hotspot to connect to it like any other. You’ll need to supply the password you set on your phone. You should now be able to browse the web on your PC, using your phone’s 4G. Just remember to stay within your data plan and turn your hotspot off (on your phone) once you’re done browsing.

    Tether for iOS and Android

    Internet connection sharing for iPhone, iPad, and Android. Share your phones internet connection with other devices including your PC or Mac. This is a simplified, cross-platform implementation of a wi-fi tethering web proxy for sharing internet connections from your iOS or Android devices.

    The core of this project is written in pure C native code. It runs on both Android via ndk-build and iOS as a result. It is intended as a useful project to familiarise oneself with cross platform socket programming. The project code currently supports GET requests over the proxy port 8080 with full HTTP headers. It also allows HTTPS from the client browser. It handles multiple requests simultaneously and does so quickly via multithreading (via Unix forks).

    The intention is to release this to our Open Source community to improve the code base and additionally extend the core cross-platform socket code to be more comprehensive and to eventually add support for Windows phones and tablets using a this unified core networking codebase written in native C for all mobile platforms that support C (in Android’s case via JNI and the NDK).

    It follows the standard network socket usage steps,

    1. socket() – The socket() function returns a socket file descriptor called sockfd
    2. bind() – Attempt to bind to the port we passed into getaddrinfo()
    3. listen() – Listen on the specified port for incoming connections
    4. accept() – Accept the incoming connection
    5. read/recv & write/send loop – Read and write the data coming through the connection
    6. close() – Close the connection

    Since C native code is used, the proxy code can initially be built, run and tested from an OS X command line to more easily view the workings of the server and client of the proxy via printf(). With a little work it can be run on Windows as well.

    This core code can be run from the command line for easier testing on OS X or Linux. For the core cross-platform code used for both iOS and Android, please see the proxy.c file (located in the tether-android sub-project with the path of /tether/tether-android/jni/ ) to run the program using main() instead of proxy() . This includes the basic steps,

    For instance, in OS X setup the “Web Proxy (HTTP)” configuration such that all HTTP/HTTPS requests are piped through the running proxy IP and port 8080.

    Specifically, this is done using the following steps:

    1. Open “System Preferences”
    2. Click “Network”
    3. Click “Advanced. “
    4. Click “Proxies”
    5. Check “Web Proxy (HTTP)”
    6. Under “Web Proxy Server” enter the IP Address or hostname of your local machine (for local testing) or your tethered Android or iOS device with the port of 8080 on which the app code is deployed and running
    7. Click “OK”
    8. Open your web browser or choice and surf the web

    Please note: The button animation may not complete once clicked in both iOS and Android, but the proxy is running in the background.

    The C native code is a library wrapped in an Android Activity and then called using System.loadLibrary(). Be sure to run the ndk-build before building the tether.apk from the Android project.

    It has been tested and is working using a real device (the latest Google Nexus 7) using a wi-fi network configuration from OS X, in which all “Web Proxy (HTTP)” requests are sent to the Android device IP on port 8080, e.g. 192.168.1.2:8080.

    The C native code is the same library wrapped in a shell of an iOS application which itself is written in Objective C. It is included as a call to the native C “proxy(1)” from the UISwitch in the RFViewController.m

    It has been tested and is working using an iPhone, an iPad and the iPhone Retina (3.5 inch) simulator using a wi-fi network configuration from OS X, in which all “Web Proxy (HTTP)” requests are sent to the iOS device IP on port 8080, e.g. 192.168.1.2:8080.

    As with all things iOS, to build and install a signed ipa version of the file you will need an Apple developer account.

    Using the Core Cross-Platform Native C Code

    The core cross-platform native C code which is reused for all OSes can be found in the /

    The proxy.c code can be setup to run as a either a native C standalone program (for use in testing on OS X and Linux) or as a native C library for use within an iOS or Android app. The only difference is the the opening two lines.

    To run it as a standalone C program use the “main” class code and proxy_port argv for the starting two lines of the class code (be sure to comment out the library version of the class code),

    To switch the same code back for use as C library code for inclusion in an Android or iOS app use the following starting two-lines (again be sure to comment out the main standalone version of the class code if you’ve made the changes above),

    That’s it! You have a simple way to rapidly use, or develop and test the tether proxy code from your OS X or Linux command line and revert it back for use as a native C library that you can include in your Android or iOS apps.

    ###To compile and run for OS X/Linux use:

    Be sure you are using the standalone C program code for the first two lines as noted above in proxy.c

    ###To compile and run for Android use:

    Be sure you are using the C library program code for the first two lines as noted above in proxy.c

    ###To compile and run for iOS use:

    Be sure you are using the C library program code for the first two lines as noted above in proxy.c

    Include the proxy.c library in the xcode sub-project (tether-ios) and wire it up to a UI element

    Compile and run using an iOS emulator or deploy to your iOS device (an Apple developer account is required to run it on the real hardware of an iPhone or iPad)

    The key principles for this project are,

    • The tethered proxy should work using the same core native C implementation for all MOSes (Mobile OSes) including iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8.x (although wrapped in platform-specific applications)
    • The tethered proxy should support HTTP & HTTPS fully
    • The tethered proxy should be multithreaded to handle simultaneous HTTP requests typical of a single web page these days
    • The project should be improved by our open source community to include best practices and combine feature excellence that anyone would love to have in a tethering proxy app
    • The project should serve as a practical introduction to network socket programming for those interested in learning it
