Atrix 2 USB Internet pass through connection

2012-04-20, 14:08 PM

We do not have wireless internet at work.  My collegue has an HTC phone that has an option to connect to the internet under manage usb connections.  My Windows 6.5 phone just connected without pressing buttons.  How can I get this option up on my Atrix?


I need to connect to the office internet connection via usb.

Could you please give some more information? I'm not 100% sure what you mean?


 


Are you looking to tether through USB?

J,


Instead of connecting the phone to the internet wirelessly, I need to use a wire, namely the usb.


The tether shares the phone's internet with the computer, I need to share the compter's internet with the phone.


 


Hopefully this helps with getting an answer.

I'm don't think that you can do this with out modding your phone. Which will void the warranty.


I did look up on Google Play, and most "reverse tethering" app require modding.


 


Sorry,


J

I'm having a little difficulty visualising the problem. When you say the solution cannot be wireless does that include bluetooth. On the PC/Desktop, create a PAN (personal area network) with Bluetooth; go to create network, choose ad hoc, go through the wizard.  Of course your Atrix2 is to be paired to the PC.


Go to task bar right click on BT icon, left click on "join personal area network". A dialog box comes choose appropriate device choose connect. If BT on phone is on, you are phone is paired to PC, and and PAN is created on PC. You should be connected to internet. Now just open a browser. At least that is the result on my laptop. This works even when the same LP is is connected by Wi-Fi i can acctually switch between the two connection types. To disconnect go to control panal. rt. click on language "customise";  in dialogue box, bottom center, hit disconnect.


Again i do not fully visualise your situation but this may solve it or maybe somebody elses' problem. The Atrix2 handles many BT profiles (mostly audio) but they can be explored indepedent of wi-fi. Caution all the data runs through the towers so there is a slight bump in data use but for a business that needs internet access.....?
