How to Connect Android Phone to Windows XP PC for Internet

Are you still using Windows XP and looking to connect your Android phone to your PC for internet access? This guide is perfect for you, and it works with both Netcom and Diner link products.

First, click on the Start menu and then click on Run. Type in “services.msc” and hit enter. Scroll down to the bottom of the list in services and double click on “wireless zero configuration.” Ensure that the “startup type” is set to “Automatic” and then check the server status. If the status is “Started,” simply click the apply button at the bottom of the window and then press OK. If the status is “Stopped,” press the start button and wait until the service has started. Then click the apply button and then press OK. Afterward, close the services window.

Click on Start again and then Run and type in “NCPA GPL” and hit enter. Right-click on the wireless network connection icon and select properties. Select the wireless networks tab on the top and ensure that “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings” is ticked, and then click OK. Windows is now configured to retain control of the wireless card, and you can now attempt to connect to your desired network.

Right-click on the wireless network connection icon and view available wireless networks. The default wireless network name for Netcom products is “wireless,” and the default wireless network name for dinah link products usually contains the model number and six random characters. If you have changed the network name, you will need to select the correct name from the list. Select your network and then click the connect button. It will then request for a security cave. Please note that by default, Diner link wireless routers are unsecured and will not ask you for a password. The default Netcom password is “a1b2c3d4a5,” then confirm it and click connect. If you see the word “connected” on the right-hand side of your network, you should now be connected wirelessly to your modem.

In conclusion, connecting your Android phone to your Windows XP PC for internet access is a straightforward process. Follow these steps, and you’ll be browsing the web in no time.
