How to Connect your Android to Internet via 3G/4G LTE or Wired Ethernet

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 Android 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: Choose to create a Wi-Fi Hotspot from the program's main window.

Step 3: 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 4: 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.

Optional: Choose the ' Ad Blocker' option as this feature will save you a lot of data. Learn more about the universal ad blocker in Connectify Hotspot.

Step 5: Click the ‘Start Hotspot’ button to begin sharing your Internet connection with your other devices.

Connect your Android to the Internet via Wi-Fi

Step 1: From your Android home screen, find your Wi-Fi settings from the notification bar and make sure that the Wi-Fi toggle is set to the On position.

Step 2: Press and hold Wi-Fi to open the Wi-Fi connection screen.

Step 3: Once the list of available Wi-Fi networks populates, you should see your Connectify Hotspot's SSID broadcasting your 3G, 4G or Ethernet network as Wi-Fi. Connect to that network by tapping it.

Step 4: You will be prompted for the password that you gave your Connectify Hotspot. Enter your password to connect.
