My situation is this: I have a modem/router with 2 pc plugged each via lan cable, pretty standard setup. Unfortunately I find myself often with prolonged connection drop to my ISP. My fallback plan when I absolutely need internet connection is to use USB thethering from my Android device to my PC. Here is the tricky part, sometimes I need to have BOTH pc connected to the internet, but since I have a router I've found myself struggling trying to get it working. Googled around a bit, even found an interesting answer here on Superuser, but im still in a dead end: the other pc just won't see my other connection available.

Is it because of the android USB thethering and Win 7 can't properly link/bridge/share?Any suggestion? Alternatively, is it sensed to directly plug my phone to the router via some adapter like this one or similar stuff? what would be the better solution?

    why not use wifi tethering? – David Dai Dec 15 '14 at 2:28
  • Unfortunately I can't, should have specified better my specs. I have no wi-fi adapter on my 2 pcs. My router has wi-fi but I don't think he can "get" but only "share" internet connection, am I correct? – Gruber Dec 15 '14 at 15:56
