According to Using Wireless Hosted Network and Internet Connection Sharing, our Internet connection can be shared to other devices via Internet Connection Sharing and wireless Hosted Networks. However these techniques support IPv4 only seemingly, and the IPv4 addresses of some sites, namely Google, is blocked in my location, namely Mainland China. Thence I may only update my Android SDK on my PC but may not update my apps from Play Store.

Therefore it would be very nice to let it work for IPv6 as well as IPv4. Thank you very much!


It can be shared with the help of a router and OpenWrt, but it is broken

I'm not looking for a method to access Play Store on my phones, but a more specified and perhaps more interesting one to access it via my PC and the direct connection to Google's servers

Any answers are welcomed, but those without the help of any third-party software or those with the help only from Free Software or Open Source Software are preferred, just by me

  • Not sure if this works, but have you tried to connect your phone to your computer via USB in the "debug mode"? – Daniel Möller Jul 7 '16 at 13:12
  • I'm trying to figure this out as well. I can only get IPv4 or IPv6 connectivity, but not both. Problem is, IPv6-only doesn't work for resolving hosts, so it's pretty useless. – TJJ Mar 31 '17 at 19:59

Same problems as you, my solution is to use a router with openwrt installed. See https://github.com/tuna/ipv6.tsinghua.edu.cn/blob/master/openwrt.md for detailed configuration(Since you are in mainland China I think it is not a problem for you to read Simplified Chinese).
