Hello friends! In this post, you will learn how to use your Android phone as a portable router to connect any device to the Internet wherever you are. Thanks to your phone and your mobile data connection, you can share the Internet with all kinds of devices, from a tablet to a computer or a Smart TV, and today we are going to show you all the ways to do it. This allows you to work or access your favorite services from anywhere, regardless of whether you have a router nearby or not. You simply need to have coverage and your data rate connection.

Your phone will work as a router, so it will be valid with any other Wi-Fi device, and also in current phones gives the option to create a 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz network, as well as being able to change the password or even delete it.

It is the most versatile, but that does not mean that it is the one you have to always use, as there are many occasions when other methods may be more convenient.
