PdaNet allows computers to receive tethered internet via USB connection. This connection must be via mobile Android phones with network internet access. Laptop and tablet users are likely to have run into connectivity issues. In particular, you may have had trouble when wireless networks are scarce or nowhere near your location. This can be a huge problem in times when you need internet access for a significant reason. PdaNet is the easy answer to these problems.

Installation for PdaNet is simple. You just have to begin the download and open the file once it has finished downloading onto the computer. Opening the file will begin the installation process for the software. It's possible that PdaNet might not recognize your particular device. If so, you would need to download drivers for your phone to fix this problem.

Once the software is installed on the computer, all that's left is to install the app client on the Android device and connecting the two together using the USB cord. Users can easily monitor what's happening between the devices by using the icon in the System Tray that tracks the connection status. This icon also leads to settings that allows the user to control various features. Features include auto connection when the two devices are attached with the USB cable, the toggle feature to turn the System Tray icon on or off, etc.

There's no doubt that PdaNet is one of the most reliable solutions for sharing the internet connection of your Android device to your computer.

Pros

  • PdaNet is extremely simple to set up and use. Simple installation and connection make for fast access and easy use.
  • You can configure PdaNet for automatic tethering. This establishes a connection between your computer and the Android phone as soon you plug in the USB cable.

Cons

  • Many network service providers for mobile phones look down upon internet tethering. Check the "Terms and Conditions" of your network provider contract to ensure that what you're doing is within the guidelines of your agreement.
