    We have a collection of options
    .
    The first option is "None". It will have no network settings at all. The second option is "Smart network sharing". "Automatically turn on USB Tethering or Internet Pass-through when available". "USB tethering" is when we connect our phone to another device by Bluetooth, to share the internet. "Internet pass-through" is used to share a computer's network connection with this HTC One M8. The final option is "MirrorLink connection". It says, "Connect phone to Head Unit via MirrorLink." If we have a head unit, this is where we will connect to it. "Smart network sharing" is the automatic option, and the rest are individual custom options. "Smart network sharing" will automatically turn on "USB Tethering" and "Internet pass-through." Or, we can just choose one.

Questions and Answers

How can I share my laptop's internet with my HTC One M8?

The USB options under Mobile Network Sharing have only "Share this phone's mobile network with computer". I have tried: Connected the USB. I think it was caused by: The option for sharing computers network is missing
