Nexus One USB Tethering and Portable Wi-Fi HotspotsShare Comment



You can share your Google™ Android™ phone’s mobile data connection with a single computer via a USB cable: this is called USB tethering. On the Nexus One you can also share your phone’s data connection with up to five devices at once, by turning your phone into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

The “Connecting to networks and devices” chapter of the Android User’s Guide describes how to use your phone in this way.

This document provides current information about the computer operating systems that support USB tethering.

USB Tethering with Linux

You can typically take advantage of USB tethering on most recent versions of Linux without any preparation. Simply follow the instructions for connecting an Android phone to the Linux computer and configuring USB tethering on the phone, as described in the Android User’s Guide.

USB Tethering with Windows 7 and Windows Vista

You can typically take advantage of USB tethering on Windows 7 and Windows Vista without any preparation. Simply follow the instructions for connecting an Android phone to the Windows 7 or Windows Vista computer and configuring USB tethering on the phone, as described in the Android User’s Guide.

USB Tethering with Windows XP

Windows XP contains the drivers you need to take advantage of USB tethering, but you must install a configuration file before connecting your phone to your Windows XP computer, to instruct Windows XP how to configure itself to use those drivers.

  1. Download the following configuration file (tetherxp.inf) to your Windows XP computer. Typically, you can right click on the link and choose "Save As". (If your browser appends .html to the file name, you will need to edit the name to remove the .html extension.)
  2. Use the USB cable that came with your phone to connect your phone to your computer.
  3. On the Android phone, press Home, press Menu, and touch Settings to open the Settings application.
  4. Touch Wireless & networks > Tethering & portable hotspot.
  5. Check USB tethering.
  6. When Windows XP’s New Hardware Wizard opens, select No, not at this time and click Next.
  7. Select Install from a list or specific location and click Next.
  8. Click Browse to browse to the directory where you installed the configuration file you downloaded in Step 1 and click Next. Windows XP uses the configuration file to configure itself to support USB tethering with the Android phone.
  9. When Windows XP finishes installing the software for Android USB Ethernet/RNDIS, click Finish.

You can now use the new Windows XP local area network connection provided by your phone via USB tethering. For more information about configuring networks in Windows XP, see the documentation that comes with Windows.

Macintosh OS does not support USB tethering at this time.
