yes, its clear from its description. but how can i do that?
i have windows 8.1 so how to use this option , can you tell me procedure?
i have installed universal ADB android drivers using PDAnet.
when i connect my phone with pc using this option (USB Debugging on) it shows a new network connection named "Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device".
i have some question regarding the procedure.
1) Installed drivers are ok or not?
2) Is PC studio required for this process?
3) How to share my dialup connection.
4) what should be firewall status for this method?
5) will i need to configure mobile network or browser for this?
Hope for some positive response..

I have just gotten an ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 which has the same option under settings. I am using Windows 7, but also unable to figure out how to share my internet connection via USB cable. Any help would be welcomed.

works on android 4.2.2 (dont know about 4.2.2+ devices)
I HAVE XOLO A600 AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY FOR ME
I HAVE FOLLOWED FOLLOWING STEPS

1. Settings->Wireless & Networks->More..
2. Usb internet.
3. select PC system version.
4.tab on NEXT.
5. tab on DONE.
6. Now in pc open "NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER.
7. right click on connection you want to share. for example "ethernet" on my computer.
8. click PROPERTIES.
9. click on SHARING tab.
10. click on "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection".
11. now choose newly added network which represents USB internet in "HOME NETWORKING CONNECTION" and click ok.
12. now you should be able to access internet on your android device.

IF NOT THEN YOUR FIREWALL SHOULD BE BLOCKING THE NETWORK SHARING.
TRY TO ALLOW NETWORK SHARING IN FIREWALL OR JUST TURN OFF YOUR FIREWALL.
