OK, so I'm back guys and it's almost half a year since I went on vacation and left my blog Kwentology dormant. Well, that hiatus is over and I brought this new article which could possibly help you somehow if we're talking about PC and the internet.
I recently moved to another place and unfortunately got rid some of my appliances including my desktop computer. And just other day, I bought a new desktop computer. The specs is quite average because all I'm doing is for blog.
Most of the desktop computer is not equipped with the WiFi chip. The same goes to mine, it only has Ethernet for LAN which is the wired connection.
WiFi USB Adapter AlternativesNow, here in my apartment, we tenants share the WiFi so wherever you are as long as you are inside of its limited wireless coverage. You should be able to get online. The physical home modem or maybe a pocket hotspot is not in my safekeeping. Probably, it is somewhere inside the main office of this villa. Or maybe another tenant holds the device. I can't find any terminal in the hallway or inside my room to where I can plug my LAN cable.
It leaves me no choice but to connect wirelessly.
- The problem I'm having is that I don't have a USB WiFi adapter.
- I'm running out of bucks so I can't buy this USB WiFi adapter.
Create Your Own USB WiFi AdapterLet's see what I have here so far;
- A desktop computer.
- WiFi with active internet connection.
- An Andriod phone connected to the WiFi.
Can I connect my phone to PC using a USB cable, connect the phone to WiFi, not a wireless tethering from the network cellular data (SIM) but enabling me to use the WiFi to my PC?
In short, Android device as a WiFi adapter for PC?
The answer is affirmatively, YES!

Before I forgot, the drawback I found on this app is the constant or frequent disconnection. Once this occurred try to manually reconnect by accessing the system tray. It's very unstable but hopefully this flaw may affix on the next update. I'm new with this app so if I missed something please leave it on the comment box below.
