Connecting to the Internet through a computer

Connecting to the Internet through a computer

If you temporarily don’t have Internet access on HTC One XL, you can still go online by using your computer’s Internet connection.

Important:
  • To make sure that the USB drivers for HTC One XL are up-to-date, install the latest version of HTC Sync Manager on your computer.
  • If your phone can't connect to the Internet via your computer's Internet connection, you may need to configure your computer's firewall to allow this type of connection. To find out how, refer to your operating system or security software help.
  • If your computer connects to the Internet via PPP (e.g. Dial UP, xDSL, or VPN), Internet Pass-through will only support TCP protocol.
  1. Go to Settings, and then under Wireless & networks, tap More.
  2. Tap Mobile network sharing > USB network setting > Internet pass-through.
    Tip: If you often switch between USB tethering and Internet pass-through, select Smart network sharing to automatically turn on the connection type you need whenever you connect HTC One XL with your computer.
  3. Connect HTC One XL to your computer using the provided USB cable. The next time HTC One XL connects to a computer, it will remember your settings.
