    Default Is tethering possible using WIFI, NOT data (carrier) via USB cable?


    I've found tons of info about tethering using data, but not WIFI via USB cable
    When I search for tethering and WIFI of course I find tons of info about how to use my phone as a wifi hotspot
    This is not what I'm trying to do

    I don't want to use the carrier's data at all
    I want to use a wifi connection I have on the phone to get internet onto my PC via USB cable
    A question like: "why don't your use you PC to connect to this wifi directly?" is not helpful
    The answer is it's xfinity wifi and I can't connect using my PC.
    It only works on my iphone 6 for some reason.

    Xfinity doesn't allow for setting up your own wifi hotspot? You'd connect a wifi hotspot/router to the Xfinity box via ethernet, then connect everything to your own hotspot.
