How to Connect your Ubuntu to 3G/4G LTE Internet with Connectify Hotspot

With Connectify Hotspot installed on your PC laptop, you can easily share Internet from your wired Ethernet, 3G, or 4G LTE USB stick as Wi-Fi, so your Ubuntu computer and other mobile devices can get online, no matter where you are.

Start a Connectify Hotspot

Step 1: Purchase Connectify Hotspot PRO or MAX from the Connectify website. Note: While there is a free trial version of Connectify Hotspot, sharing 3G/4G or Ethernet connections as Wi-Fi is only available in the PRO and MAX versions.

Step 2: Make sure your 3G or 4G device or Ethernet adapter is selected from the ‘Internet to Share’ dropdown. Icons next to each adapter tell you what kind of Internet connection you’re selecting.

Step 3: Give your hotspot a name (SSID) and password. The hotspot name is the network name that other devices will see and connect to using your unique password. Your Connectify Hotspot is a real, working hotspot that you use just like any other wireless network.

Step 4: Click the ‘Start Hotspot’ button to begin sharing your 3G or 4G LTE Internet connection with your Android and other Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

Connect your Ubuntu device to Connectify via Wi-Fi

Step 1:  Open the system menu from the right side of the top bar then select the Wi-Fi icon.

Step 2:  Double click Select Network.

Step 3: Double click the name of the network you want, enter your Connectify Hotspot Wi-Fi password when prompted and click Connect.
