I am connected to my home WiFi Network and my Personal Computer doesn't have a Built in WiFi support. I can't afford a 50 metres long LAN Cable from Router to my PC. I was wondering if I can share the WiFi connection through my Smartphone to the PC using Phone's USB Cable. I want to share the Home WiFi Network, to which my Smartphone is already connected to use Internet on my PC. Is it possible?
Connected to WiFi on Smartphone can I share this connection?
