Hello Everyone,
This guide is intended to help you share Internet connection from your PC to your Android phone via USB cable, which is called Reverse Tethering.

Why Do You Need Reverse Tethering:
- You don't have a mobile/wifi network and your PC doesn't have any wifi adapter or it is fried.
- You can't do tethering over wifi, for example, your company doesn't let you make any hotspot at work.
- You don't want to spend money for a mobile plan, and you want a more stable and faster Internet connection than wifi.
