We are now in this day and age where we need to stay connected not only to our home or office but even on the go as well. For this reason, we set up WiFi at places we frequently travel whenever possible. Now, one of those scenarios where being connected to WiFi is not possible is during travels. Therefore, the best option to get internet access in this situation is to transform our smartphone into a modem so that we can connect our laptop or computer to it. This process is also termed as tethering and it is widely used nowadays. Meet PdaNet+, a simple solution for tethering.
What is PdaNet+?
One of the best applications available for tethering is the PdaNet+ application available for Android, Mac, and Windows. PdaNet+ application supports connections using Wi-Fi, a USB cable connection, and even Bluetooth dial-up internet connections. As far as pricing is concerned, the app is free for usage but it is available on a trial basis. The full version of the app is available as a paid purchase.
Coming to the aspect of how to use the PdaNet+ app in order to turn our smartphone into a modem, it is actually very simple. First of all, you need to download the application on your Laptop or Computer running either Windows or MacOS. Now, you will be prompted to install the PdaNet+ application on your smartphone as well. If not, you need to download the application on your own from the Google Play Store.
Now, you just need to setup the application both on your PC and smartphone. That’s it, you will now be able to tether your smartphone’s internet connection to your Laptop or Computer. Note that you can only tether internet connection on your smartphone from your cellular provider. For this, you need to activate a data plan prior to the tethering as well. For iPhone users, Apple does not allow PdaNet+ in the App Store so you cannot officially get this application on your device.
