androidlogoPreviously I had written a tutorial showing how to share internet connection from an Android device to a computer (tethering) using a free app called PDAnet. It enables you to go online via your computer using your phone’s 3G/WiFi/GPRS connection. ClockworkMod Tether is another simple to use app that lets you share your phone’s internet connection to computer using USB cable.
