in this topic, we will explain how to make Ubuntu connect to the WiFi network that Android has connected to. This means that you will make your Android device as a Hotspot or Internet distributor so that Ubuntu can pick up the Internet and run it on your computer. (* Bluetooth is required on your computer )
- Make sure Bluetooth is turned ON and Visible for other devices, using Bluetooth settings.
- Now click on the “+” sign below to add or pair with a new device, and in our case the new device is Android.
Select the desired device and press Next, then a window will appear on your phone to confirm your request for pairing between the devices, and on your computer a window will also appear in it, press ‘Matches
- once the pairing process is successful, you can now share and run your phone’s Internet on Ubuntu, but you’ll need to do the following:
- Enable Bluetooth tethering on your Android device through Settings – Wireless & networks – Tethering & portable hotspot – Bluetooth tethering (Arabic: Settings – Networks – Connectivity and Mobile Points – Connecting via Bluetooth).
- Now go to Ubuntu, specifically to the network icon on the top bar, click on Edit Connections, you will see a new submenu called Bluetooth, as in the picture, double-click to activate it, now simply click the network icon in the top bar and click on the network name For Android to connect to the Internet.
* There is one negative about this method is that the signals transmitted by the Bluetooth is sometimes subject to interference, which affects the speed, so the speed of Wi-Fi will not be in real image
