How can I connect my PC's internet connection to a Sony Xperia C phone through its data cable?
There are a number of ways that you can connect your PC's internet connection to your Sony Xperia C phone with a USB cable. However, they all require third-party applications, since by default, Android phones are not able to connect to your PC's internet connection through a USB cable. Thankfully, developers have worked around this issue to bring you a number of ways to connect your Sony Xperia C to your PC's internet connection; however, the applications that allow you to connect your Android phone to your PC to share your PC's internet connection require a rooted phone, which is a very involved process that, if you mess it up, can brick (or permanently disable) your phone. If you don't have a rooted phone, you unfortunately will not be able to share your PC's internet connection to your Sony Xperia C with a USB cable. If you want to set up a WiFi network from your PC to use on your Android phone, you can use the Connectify app. If you are rooted, however, you can follow the steps below to tether your phone to your computer to use its internet connection with the most popular reverse-tethering tool available.
