The first requirement is that your phone should have Mobile hotspot and tethering facility. Generally most phones today have this facility. Your phone will receive internet from the data connection on your Jio SIM and function as a transmitting WiFi modem .i.e. it becomes a Mobile Hotspot. Alternatively you can use a suitable USB cable and connect one end to your Smartphone and the other end to your computer. This is called tethering.
(A)Connecting with cable:
Take a suitable USB cable (depending on the connecting port in your phone and the connecting port in your computer) and connect one end to the phone and the other end to the computer. Generally the charging/data cable given with your phone may be suitable.
Then, tethering facility has to be activated in your phone. For this go to Settings, and then
Choose "Connections" or" Data " or 'Networks" (as per your phone model ) and the select 'Mobile hotspot& tethering' or any similar worded )and then put ON 'USB tethering'. You have to ensure that your mobile data is also ON. Now tethering is activated in your phone. The Computer will be detecting the phone and depending on the computer model may need some more configuring or authentication. Once that is over, your computer will be getting connected to internet using the data connection of your Jio Sim.
(B)Connection without Cable: There are two ways: Bluetooth tethering and Mobile hotspot for this.
1. Bluetooth tethering:
Here the Bluetooth in your phone is used to connect internet to the computer. In case your computer does not have the inbuilt facility for Bluetooth, you may have to add a USB Bluetooth adapter to the computer. This may need configuring initially as per the models. So ensure that Computer is ready for Bluetooth reception.
Open Bluetooth in your phone. Go to settings and find following the prompts in phone and computer. In the computer open settings and choose Bluetooth devices. Here you may have to add your phone device using 'add Bluetooth device' select your phone under that and continue by pairing as per prompts.
Once the phone and computer are paired, you go to Bluetooth tethering from Bluetooth setting in your phone and turn it on. Ensure that your mobile data is on. In the computer go to Bluetooth and select 'Join personal Area Network'. From there click 'Connect" and ' Access point' or 'direct connection' as per display there. Now your computer will be connected to internet through your phone via Bluetooth. You can check by opening browser and searching sites.
2. Using Wi Fi hotspot(Mobile hotspot)
Like in previous events, select Settings, Tethering and hotspot, then activate Mobile Hotspot/WiFi hotspot/portable hotpot (as per your phone model) by turning ON. You may need to do some configuring if the hotspot does not turn on after putting ON. You may have to give a name to the hotspot for identification in the computer and have to give a security password.
In the computer, go to settings, Network & Internet and WiFi. If you click on 'available connections' you can spot the hotspot name given by you. Click on that and click connect. It will ask for the password you have created in your phone. Give that and click connects. The net is now connected.
All these procedure can be carried on by clicking on the WiFi icon on the screen and proceeding from there.
Though at first it may appear complicated once you are familiar it becomes very easy. Once started further use will be just easy from the shortcuts and icons. The settings menu names and sub menus names may be worded differently in different models.
Using USB connection will give more speed. Next will be Bluetooth. It is better to have unlimited data connection in your phone. It is also better to mark your phone connection as' metered connection' in your computer WiFi settings to save unwanted use of costly data.
