    Just open the app drawer and tap on the settings option. Choose more settings which is listed under the Wireless and network section. Also tap on the ‘Tethering and portable hotspot’ option. Then connect your Android device to your PC or laptop via a USB cable. And then check the USB tethering option in order to enable it. And you will receive a notification saying the tethering feature is active. Just wait for the computer to install it to an appropriate driver. Thus, you can use the internet in the phone’s data card as usual.
