What if your PC or laptop needs to connect to the Internet, but there is no wireless network nearby? Don't worry, you can share your mobile phone network to your laptop through wired or wireless, so that your laptop can access the network normally. This article will introduce the three connection methods of WLAN, USB cable and Bluetooth for Apple mobile phones and Android mobile phones, hoping to help you.
The three network sharing methods of mobile phones have their own advantages and disadvantages, and are suitable for different situations, but among the three methods, we recommend USB network sharing the most, for the following reasons:
A word of caution: Using the internet on a computer tends to cost more data than on a phone. Therefore, if the mobile phone does not have enough traffic, it is not recommended to use the mobile phone to share the network for the computer.
