Hello. I wanted to connect to the Internet using my Android phone's tethering function, but I don't understand how.
My question is: how to connect using my Android phone?

Unless you've managed to install Damn Small Linux on your phone, in which case I'd say you're pretty lucky if internet is the only thing not working, I'd say you'd be better finding a forum about Android phones.

You could also post in the "Water Cooler" section, but your chances of finding help probably make getting hit by a meteorite look like an normal lifetime hazard.

In the settings on your phone there should be a 'tethering & portable hotspot' item (or something similar -(on my Sony Xperia it is under wireless & networks -> more ->tethering & portable hotspot.

This will set up a portable wireless hotspot using your phones data connection. The phone will generate, or allow you to specify a hotspot name & WPA key. Use this name & WPA key to connect using the wireless connection from DSL as you would to any other wireless network.

Ah, right. I'm not into modern phones, so I thought you were asking how to connect your phone to the internet, not to a computer.

My mistake.
