Problem

My Windows 10 PC has an Internet connection. My Android phone does not have Internet connection. Almost every suggestion on the internet is too old to work.

Question

How can I share my PC's internet with an Android phone running Marshmallow (Android 6)?


Other posts that are not useful for answering this question

I was suggested other SuperUser posts to use. I've tried these and they no longer work for the following reasons:

Access Internet on android phone by connecting it to laptop? : Question is for Ubuntu and doesn't work on anything Lollipop and above

Sharing a PC Internet to a Android phone via Bluetooth : Too old to work for anything Lollipop and above, no longer maintained.

Issue in internet sharing(ethernet) to android device in mavericks : No answer and the person is asking about using their mac. I am trying to use a PC.

Use PC internet on mobile phone via bluetooth : Broken links renders the answer unusable.

    So what have you tried? What happened when you tried them? Did anything almost work? Have you found anything that might work but some step failed? Share your research. Saying things are "too old to work" doesn't help anyone to help you. – Mokubai Sep 9 '16 at 19:20

    I'll have to try this when I get home, b/c I don't have admin privileges at work, but you can enable usb connection using RNDIS through developer options, then likely you need to mess around with network and sharing center on windows.... – Aaron Sep 9 '16 at 19:37
