    Hi there,

    As the TETHERING always done with the help of a data cable so check whether your data cable is properly connected.
    You should also check if it is working.

    If you find no issue with the data cable then you should probably restart your computer and then try to connect it again using data cable by switching the tethering ON from the setting ->wireless and network->tethering and portable hotspot->tethering.

    Hope it will start working after that.

    Regards!!!

    Re: Facing problem while tethering android phone with pc

    Check out this method..
    jus need to download external software.
    dont worry it wont be chargeable..

    What Youíll Need

    Accept for a quick download, you should have everything you need on hand already. For this tutorial youíll need the following items:
    • Your Android Phone
    • Your laptop, netbook, or desktop computer
    • A USB sync cable for your Android phone
    • A copy of Clockwork Mod Tether Alpha (Available for Windows/Mac/Linux)
    Once youíve downloaded the appropriate copy for your OS, youíre ready to rock. Letís get started!
    Installing Tether


    After downloading the installation app, launch it. Although you wonít have to do anything too fancy to install tether you will need to approve a variety of system changesóthe warnings look serious but thatís just because Windows Vista/7 is particularly aggressive about warning users.
    Click through the installation process, about halfway through a command prompt window will pop up and the installation process will prompt you to approve the installation of an unsigned driver. Approve it.

    At the end of the installation process Tether will launch your default web browser and direct it to Tether Drivers sub-page of the ClockworkMod site. If you already have the most up-to-date USB drivers for your particular Android phone, you can skip this step. For everyone else, take a moment to grab drivers for your phone. Donít see your phone listed? You can always check out the driver list provided by Google here. At any rate, youíll need to make sure your drivers are up to date before continuing.
    If youíve previously used PDAnet on your computer (whether the trial or the full package) youíll need to uninstall it before continuing. Tether will not work if PDAnet is installed. Once your drivers are up to date and youíve confirmed PDAnet is uninstalled, itís time to fire up Tether.

    When you first run it there isnít much going on, it simply sits by idle waiting for you to start the process. Now is the time to plug in your Android phoneís sync cable and tether the phone to your computer. Youíll need to have Debug mode enabled. Take a moment to navigate, on your Android phone, to Settings > Applications > Development and checkUSB Debugging. Once youíve confirmed debugging is on and your phone is connected, click Start in the Tether interface on your computer.
    Tether should spring to life; donít worry too much about the output whirling by in the Tether Log window. Tether will automatically install the Tether application on your Android phone (if it doesnít you can find it in the \ClockworkMod\Tether\Common\ folder and install it manually).
    At this point the USB logo on both the Tether desktop app and the Tether Android app should be green like so:

    And thatís it! Youíre connected to the internet via your Android phone. No more hunting for Wi-Fi nodes, youíve got a easy to use tether right in your pocket.
    Troubleshooting Your Tether Installation

    Although we had a painless Tether installation, itís still an Alpha release app. Weíve rounded up some solutions to common problems here.
    First, when in doubt, restart both your computer and phone. Second, use the task manager to kill all instances of tether.exe and node.exe before restarting the tether.exeósome users report that the first time they run Tether it doesnít work but after killing the process and starting it again everything is fine.
    Getting a DUN Null error? Make sure youíve uninstalled PDAnetódouble check even if you think itís not installed, maybe you tested it out years ago and forgot.
    Connection hangs between phone and computer? Make sure your USB drivers are up to date. Itís possible to have just-good-enough older drivers that get the phone and computer talking but fail to completely connect the two together.
    Installation failed? Run it again as administrator and make sure to approve the driver requests it makes.

    Try the Following tweaks and make sure your Connection is getting back to normal working Condition,

    1) If any updates are available, update all and Reboot the Device.
    2) After Rebooting, freshly establish the Connection of "tethering" with the PC.
    3) Delete the previous connection established with PC, and give new name for the Connection.
    4) Reboot the PC, and connect both the Devices now.
    5) This time surely, the connection will work. All the Best.

    You have mentioned that the connection was working fine previously, so now better check the Mobile subscription package and confirm that the Package is still active. then you have to configure the Connection from Scratch, some times this will solve the problem associated with the Devices. Configure the Tethering and then pair with the PC FROM scratch. now it should be working fine.

    hi friend,

    if you are facing some problem while connecting your computer with your
    mobile phone via USB tethering in your mobile ....

    then this problem may arise because of your USB WIRE may get damaged....

    or your phone is affected by any virus for this you can download any
    antivirus from the google play store....


    you can also check the usb connetion settings by following this path:

    MENU ---> SETTINGS ---> WIRELESS AND NETWORK ----> USB TETHERING

    best of luck.....
