How To Connect Internet On Pc From Android Phone

Sharing android internet to the computer or any android mobile is very simple. Just turn on your wifi hotspot that's it now any wifi enables device can connect to the internet. But a few years back it was not that simple as it looks now. I still know used to use a 128x128 inch Nokia mobile with very very slow GPRS. i kept on changing mobile from 128x128 inch nokia mobile to nokia 6600 then 3230, N72, N73 and the last nokia mobile i used N97 but i used same GPRS. Because at that time there was no 2G, 3G. So i used it until I bought broadband connection.

A computer without the internet feels like a car without wheels. You can't even seat 2 hours if you're not watching a movie or playing any game. When I bought my first PC I didn’t have the enough money to subscribe to the internet. But I had a Symbian mobile phone with GPRS internet plan, Though speed was very very slow but at least I had something to work with. So I connected it to my PC and started sharing my phone net on PC. I am talking about 2005 when I had a Nokia 6600. Now it's 2016 and we have 20 times more powerful phones in our hand with endless features. But still, some people don’t have the internet on PC. They all have their own reasons for the situation.
