Hi community !

Does anyone know how to share wired internet from the laptop, over wifi, to the Android phone ? What if the wired network (LAN) goes through a proxy server ?

What tools do we need, what settings has to be done ?

I think I found a solution only for the first part of my query, the LAN without proxy.

Please provide instructions on how to make a proper configuration. I did search on multiple forums, none of them are showing comprehensible way to accomplish this.

Thank you

I'm using Windows 7.
Thanks for the tip on where the proxy settings location is in Android, for Wifi.
I'm still not able to connect using proxy on Wifi.
For Android, is there any similar location to enter proxy but for the mobile network, not the Wifi network?

Settings => More.. => Mobile networks => Access Point Names => Click on the APN which is checked

You can also use the app ProxyDroid if you're rooted.
