  • There are three modes of connection possible between the two devices.
  • The modes are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB.

Example:
Check out whether your devices support hardware connection only, or software or both. Most mobile devices now offer all modes, but the desktops and laptops of the previous generation (read 5 years ago) may not.

What you need:

  • Devices that have common connection modes – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB
  • Tether as per the instructions of the device or seek expert advice

Note: Each connection mode has a limited range and may have proprietary restrictions.
