If you use Windows XP and want to USB tether your Android device, this is the guide you need. Incase you didn’t know, USB Tethering is a feature (on smartphones like those running Android ) enabling a user to share the Data Connection on his phone to a Computer using a USB Cable.

If you were wondering, Dialing up a connection is different because for that you need additional drivers, additional setup etc, but USB tethering doesn’t need additional setup most of the time.

Users running Windows 7 or higher can easily use USB tethering with just a click, but the same is not true for Windows XP users. But, you can fix this with a 4.3 kB configuration file. Follow these instructions to use USB tethering on a Windowx XP PC:-

  1. Download tetherxp.inf.
  2. Connect your Android device to the computer via USB Cable.
  3. On your Phone go to Setttings >> Wireless & networks >> Tethering & portable hotspot and check USB tethering.
  4. When Windows XP’s Found New Hardware Wizard opens up, select No, not at this time and click Next.
  5. Select Install from a list or specific location and click Next.
  6. Browse down to the folder containing tetherxp.inf and click Next.
  7. After Windows XP finishes installing the software for Android USB Ethernet/RNDIS, click Finish.

Now, you’d have a new LAN (Local Area Network) Connection active on your Windows XP. You can access the internet using this connection shared from your phone.
