    Reverse Tethering in Motorola Droid X2 for Internet PassThrough

    The recent rumors say that HTC is not providing the reverse tethering feature called Internet Passthrough. The working fact if this feature is that now you can use your unrooted smartphones to connect to the standard computers via USB cable in order to use the internet connections from PC. Thatís kinda good feature.

    Does anyone know when Motorola enables the same functionality?

    Reverse Tethering is the opposite: to navigate the phone using your PC ADSL
    .
    The application is still in early stages, and there are a couple of errors that must be resolved (such as being able to download from the market), but so far looks promising. The developer also is accepting comments on the models currently not included in the test devices.

    I think it exists. If you are using the Android 2.2 or higher, you do this (Windows Vista / 7 only!)

    • Enable USB Tethering to Settings> Wireless etc> Tethering > USB Tethering
    • Open the network center, and click on your network name (with an icon of a network plug).
    • Choose Properties, go to sharing tab, and tick the first box. Then choose the network connection of your USB tethering . Confirm this.
    • Install the app " Terminal Emulator "or an app that does the same thing (for tethering + ADB does not mix)
    • Start with the command "su" to type and press enter. Confirm the course app root should be given.
    • Then type this command: "usb0 netcfg dhcp" and press enter.
    • Open your browser and browse it. So far I have no problems.

    Reverse-tethering means the ability to navigate from smartphones using ADSL connectivity to a PC or a Mac. It is still in the early part of the development; the conditions are very satisfactory and are just a few bugs that hinder the spread of this new technology. However the HTC is growing in a Full pace and as with the Tethering Technology. I hope soon Motorola will be looking for the same.

    Android smartphones that will use a technique like that must have been unlocked, requiring the user complete access to the device (so you need root permissions). For those who do not have a rooted Android smartphone, you're thinking about other solutions, not yet available.
