How to Connect PC Internet to Mobile via WiFi

This emindsca teaches you how to broadcast the Wi-Fi connection of your Windows computer to your smartphone. This can be done on any computer that has a network hosting-enabled Wi-Fi adapter installed, so you won’t be able to use many desktop computers for this process. Remember that this is not the same as using your smartphone’s data as a Wi-Fi network on your computer. If your computer’s Wi-Fi adapter does not allow you to create a hotspot, you can broadcast your Wi-Fi using Connectify.

Method 1 Using Windows 10 Settings

1. Open Start. Click the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner of the screen.

2. Open Settings. Click the Settings gear in the lower-left side of the Start menu. The Settings window will open.

3. Click Network & Internet. It’s the globe-shaped icon in the Settings window’s centre.

4. Click the Mobile hotspot tab. This is on the left side of the window.

5. Select the grey “Mobile hotspot” toggle switch. It can be found at the top of the page. When you click the switch, it turns on, indicating that your computer is now broadcasting your Internet connection.

6. Examine your network’s name and password. Look for the “Network name” and “Network password” headings in the middle of the page to find the name and password for your mobile hotspot.

The network name should be the name of your computer, and the password should be the usual password for your network.

7. Connect your smartphone to your home network’s Wi-Fi. Now that your Wi-Fi hotspot is configured on your computer, you can connect to it using the Wi-Fi menu on your smartphone:

iPhone — Go to Settings on your iPhone, tap Wi-Fi, tap the name of your hosted hotspot, enter the password, and tap Join.

Swipe down from the top of the screen, long-press the Wi-Fi icon, tap the name of your hosted hotspot, enter the password, and then tap JOIN or CONNECT.

Method 2 Using Connectify

1. Make sure that you have a wireless adapter installed. You can check to see if your computer has a built-in Wi-Fi adapter by doing the following:

  • Open Start .
  • Type in command prompt, then click Command Prompt.
  • Type in netsh wlan show drivers and press ↵ Enter.
  • Wait for your adapter’s information to appear. If you instead see “The Wireless AutoConfig Service is not running” appear, you don’t have a wireless adapter installed.

2. Download the Connectify installation file. Connectify is a free app for broadcasting your computer’s Wi-Fi over short distances:

In your computer’s web browser, navigate to https://www.connectify.me/.

Click the purple Download button to begin.

Continue to Download by clicking the button.

3. Connectify should be installed. When the Connectify setup file has finished downloading, double-click it and then do the following:

Click Yes when prompted.

Click I Agree.

Click Agree

Check the “Reboot now” box.

Click Finish.

4. Wait for your computer to restart completely. You can proceed once your computer has restarted.

5. If necessary, launch Connectify. On your computer’s desktop, double-click the “Connectify Hotspot 2018” icon.

If the Connectify window opens automatically, skip this step.

6. Click Try it Out. It’s a purple button at the bottom of the Connectify app window.

7. Click the Wi-Fi Hotspot tab. This is at the top of the Connectify window.

8. If necessary, change your password. Delete the existing text in the “Password” text box and type in the password you want to use for your network.

In the free version of Connectify, you cannot change the network name.

9. Click Start Hotspot. It’s at the bottom of the window.

10. Allow your computer’s hotspot to boot up. You can proceed once Connectify alerts you that the hotspot is enabled.

11. Connect your smartphone to your home network’s Wi-Fi. Now that your Wi-Fi hotspot is configured on your computer, you can connect to it using the Wi-Fi menu on your smartphone:

iPhone — Go to Settings on your iPhone, tap Wi-Fi, tap the name of your hosted hotspot, enter the password, and tap Join.

Swipe down from the top of the screen, long-press the Wi-Fi icon, tap the name of your hosted hotspot, enter the password, and then tap JOIN or CONNECT.
