There is no support for this in the Android SDK, sorry.

 Hi, Mark!

Yes, I know that it is no support for this in the Android SDK. But,
devices exist and some application could use go to the internet via
PC.

I think that it means that firmware providers supports this
functionality somehow.
The question is: may be someone knows how it was done?

This list is for the Android SDK. Either speak to the manufacturers in
question, or perhaps inquire on one of the Google Groups listed on
 http://source.android.com .

Getting internet from PC via USB

by Tina » Mon, 14 Mar 2011 22:20:34 GMT


 Hi, all.
Our customers send us the request to support internet access via USB.
I know that some tablet (f. ex. WowPad, AL-10 etc) supports such
functionality, but have no idea how this option could be reached from
API.
Now I use HttpPost and HttpGet classes but they does not work throught
PC.

Thanks,
Tina

 Thank you for your answer again.
I will post same question to the source group. But, the question is
about Android SDK.
May be someone has expirience or information which part of stardart
SDK supports on these devices. I am not going to write device-specific
code, but if I could solve the problem by using another standard
function it will be very good.
Unfortunately I have not such device and could not make tests by
myself.

There're apps to offer such feature, like PDANet for example. May be
much cheaper to simply buy it instead of developing own solution with
no experience in that field.

It should *probably* be reflected in some way in ConnectivityManager - just consider what happens if the user disables 3G and WiFi on such a device and connects it to a computer (getting a network connection like you described). Applications can check ConnectivityManager to see if there is a connection, and unless they (the developers of such devices) somehow make the computer connection visible here, such applications would not work, not seeing a network connection. That's just a guess though.
Unfortunately I have not such device and could not make tests by myself.
That would be a good first step - if this requirement comes from "The Mgmt", ask them to provide you with such device for testing. If they do, you can run your own tests. But they might also change their mind about this requirement :) -- Kostya Vasilyev -- http://kmansoft.wordpress.com --
