I use a mobile as a WiFi adapter on my laptop. Instead for connecting WiFi and teathering with Bluetooth, I just connect it to WiFi and teather with USB. No battery drain :P. You can do it on almost any phone or tablet without root.

Awesome good idea!

Is there any chances of something like this on non rooted devices??
I have a TV in a box with chipset RK3188, i usually don't use the wifi of the device cause mostly i listen music and watch movies.
I'd like to extend the wifi of my home router with my tv in a box.
