Windows Phone doesn't support sharing its connection over Bluetooth, nor connecting to the Internet via a Bluetooth connection. The closest that is achievable, is that Internet sharing can be started from paired Bluetooth device, and on Windows 8.1, this will show the hotspot as an available WiFi network - this still works as a WiFi network though, so in ...

By judging what you are trying here to accomplish, I think you are mentioning Reverse USB Tethering. Windows Phone 7 had it by default via Zune. In Windows Phone 8 the dev team dropped this feature. So there is no way you can share your PC's internet to phone via USB. Most likely what you can do to avail internet in phone, you can set an adapter up as an ...

You can only share your phone's mobile connection over WiFi or Bluetooth. Since the PC you wish to share with is a laptop, it should have both of those available. As far as I know, sharing over USB is not available in Windows 10 Mobile. To enable internet sharing, go to Settings → Network & wireless → Mobile hotspot. See this article for step-...

Though Windows 8.1 does provide USB option if you search for it but the settings there are related to only your storage settings. And hence Windows 8.1 still doesnt have tethering enabled. Its a feature thats been requested a lot and is needed but still not available :(

Turning on Internet Sharing turns your phone into a router hosting a WiFi network. As the phones only tend to have a single WiFi adapter, it can only be listening on a single radio channel at any given time. As each WiFi network will prefer to sit on its own channel to avoid interference, the adapter cannot be connected to multiple networks simultaneously.

Starting with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, internet sharing can be done over Bluetooth, as well as over WiFi. To enable it, simply use the "Share over" dropdown list in the internet sharing settings app. For more information: Internet sharing over Bluetooth comes via GDR1 update for Windows Phone

I don't think this is a problem with your Lumia 620 - Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal is a Windows error relating to wireless drivers. I had the same crash when using the Windows 8.1 preview. The problem was not caused by FIPS, but a driver problem with my integrated Intel wireless adapter (HP does not support Windows 8 on my laptop). The fix was to disable ...

Wifi is disconnecting is not a bug but a feature to save battery. there are some apps that keep your wifi alive but it's not in the OS currently. Also when the phone is connected to the power cable it will keep the wifi alive. wifi will automatically reconnect when you start using the phone. Internet sharing works through WIFI only and not via cable: http:/...

I don't pin-lock my device, but I have happily used the Internet Connection sharing feature on a HTC Titan after the screen has gone into power save, when the device has been on external power. Knowing that Windows Phone will disable Wi-Fi to conserve battery when the screen is off, it may just be that you need to connect the phone to an external power ...

As far as I know there is no way to share the comptuers data connection with the phone over USB, you could do it with something Virtual Wifi Wrouter. I've used it and it works very well.

You are tethering over WiFi so the input is coming from data and the output is going over the WiFi network. The numbers 268MB of cellular data and 279MB WiFi will always stay pretty close together. The question about why they differ at all is a lot more complex and is probably best answered by the developers of the app.

Since you are able to ping by ip but not by name this points to a DNS problem on your connected computer. If you change your DNS settings that should fix it Google Public DNS

It looks like the PlayStation 3 does not support ad-hoc wifi networks like those created by smartphones to tether internet to other devices. Looking at a few search results this seems to happen with Android devices as well so I guess Sony would need to update their console to enable this.

This is actually a feature, not a bug. Your notebook recognizes that your phone is near and that you could start internet sharing without explicitly activating it on your phone. For this your phone Needs to be paired with your notebook through Bluetooth. As long as you're not connected to the phones Wi-Fi tethering will not be activated. Here's some more ...

So you've Enabled Internet sharing from your windows phone using Bluetooth. You have also paired with your laptop. But, still, no internet. Why not? Have you connected via the Access Point? When you pair over Bluetooth, you create a "point of access" to use the internet of your windows phone. Here's how: If you have the bluetooth icon in your taskbar at ...

In principle, yes. The Lumia 640 supports 802.11n WiFi, which is generally faster than 3G. In practice, the speeds you get will depend on 4G coverage in your area and your cellular plan, as well as the distance and presence of obstacles between your phone and the router, interfering signals from other WiFi networks, and several other factors.

This is a known issue even in windows 10 , can't say about the new anniversary update. There is only one way to keep the hotspot running , that is never let your phone go to sleep the screen must be always on and the hotspot setting must be opened. Don't use any other apps . yes yes i know this is stupid but this is the only way. and if the phone goes to ...

USB tethering is not supported in Windows phone until now. The USB data connection you are refering to is not an Internet sharing feature, it is a file sharing feature. Still thinking data means Internet? Try this. Don't allow USB data connection and try to access your Memory card. You can't. That is what the prompt and the settings is for. When I ...

ShareIt works only in LAN created by Windows Phone when using Windows Phone.Even when you do WP to ANDROID and vice-versa, WP has to create LAN,else it won't work. It is clearly written in manual. Same is with I-Phone. edit - It is the restrictions for ShareIt.For other file transfer apps like Easy File Transfer being on the same network is enough.

I tried Easy Transfer, FTP Server, and Wi-Fi File Sharer on my WP 8.1. All of these worked on WiFi and Internet Sharing mode as well. It also works when both devices are connected to the same WiFi. I tested all these three cases with different combinations (WP to Android, Android to WP and WP to WP). Conclusion: ShareIt and Zapya have their own problems.

On Windows 7 you can enable FIPS without the network being active. Open network and sharing center, then select the name of your phone's wireless tethering network. Right-click, select properties, Security tab, then click the Advanced Settings button in order to be able to check the box to enable Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). This fixed ...

This was fixed with the newest Windows Phone 8 update. It had nothing to do with the carrier block or the internet sharing plan.
