Usb Tethering Software For Windows Xp ((EXCLUSIVE))
How to Use USB Tethering on Windows XP
USB tethering is a feature that allows you to share your smartphone's internet connection with your computer via a USB cable. This can be useful when you don't have access to a Wi-Fi network or when your mobile data is faster or more reliable than your broadband connection.
However, USB tethering is not supported by default on Windows XP, which was released before this feature became popular. You will need to install a special driver and configure some settings to make it work. In this article, we will show you how to do that step by step.
Step 1: Download and Install the RNDIS Driver
The first thing you need to do is to download and install the RNDIS driver, which is a generic driver for USB devices that use the Remote NDIS protocol. This driver was developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows Driver Foundation (WDF) for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and later versions. You can download it from the following link:
WinUSB version 1.9 update for Windows XP, for Windows Vista, and for Windows Server 2008 - Microsoft Support
After downloading the file, run it and follow the instructions to install the driver. You may have to restart your computer after the installation.
Step 2: Connect Your Smartphone to Your Computer via USB
Next, you need to connect your smartphone to your computer using a USB cable. Make sure your smartphone is unlocked and has internet access via mobile data or Wi-Fi. You may also need to enable USB debugging on your smartphone's settings. This option can be found under Developer options or Applications in most Android devices.
Step 3: Enable USB Tethering on Your Smartphone
Once your smartphone is connected to your computer, you need to enable USB tethering on your smartphone's settings. This option can be found under Wireless and networks or Connections in most Android devices. Tap on it and turn it on. You should see a notification on your smartphone that says "USB tethering active".
Step 4: Configure Your Computer's Network Settings
The final step is to configure your computer's network settings to use the internet connection from your smartphone. To do this, go to Control Panel > Network Connections and right-click on the Local Area Connection that corresponds to your smartphone. Select Properties and then click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click on Properties again and then select Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Click OK twice and close the window.
You should now be able to access the internet from your computer using your smartphone's connection. You can check your connection status by going to Control Panel > Network Connections and double-clicking on the Local Area Connection that corresponds to your smartphone. You should see something like this:
Congratulations! You have successfully enabled USB tethering on Windows XP. To disable it, just turn off USB tethering on your smartphone or disconnect the USB cable. 9160f4acd4
