  1. Hi Promod
    During to the current lockdown i was for some reason unable to connect my office laptop to my home wi fi. Got some strange error saying Network Key is wrong. Rest of my devices iPad, Mobile etc were connecting well

    Out of frustation i decided to use my Mobile as a Hotspot and use the laptop temporarily. While Connecting i came across a setting WiFi Tethering. I used the option and my Laptop connected to the Internet.

    My question Is my laptop using my mobile data (would not like as it would get exhausted quickly and speed is slow)
    OR
    Is it using my mobile as a Modem and Connecting to the Home WiFi (if so this is great)

    Why cant i use Teethering without a SIM Card as i tried using a standby phone and it didn’t allow

    Kindly advise

    • Hi Arjun,
      There is no issue until you use your phone privately, if you share WiFi network outside your house then this could create problem. You should disable your Windows auto update because only this can exhausted your mobile data very soon.
      You should use a good vpn service free VPN & paid VPN. Also check Free vs Paid VPN to understand which one is best. So your Wifi Network data will remain protected from thieves.
