How to use phone as WiFi repeater - Windows

You can easily convert your Android smartphone or tablet to a working Wi-Fi repeater for accessing the data in long ranges. Follow the steps mentioned below to do that. Some OEMs pack their devices with this feature integrated with the custom skin. But you can still use this feature on other devices with some tricks. We should depend on third-party apps to establish an extended connection and build an Android wifi repeater. Below are the best apps for that.

  • NetShare no root tethering app
  • Netshare – Extend Wi-Fi network app


Step 1. Head to Google Play Store and download the NetShare-no-root-tethering app.

Step 2. When you open the app, you will see the Share internet connection tab. Click on the button to enable it. This basically repeats the Wi-Fi signal you are connected to.

Step 3. It must be noted that you cannot change the name or the password. The name of the new Wi-Fi network that is transmitted from your phone will be the Network Name displayed in the app. The Wi-Fi key will be that of the Network Password.

Step 4. Once you enter the password, try to connect to the Wi-Fi network. This will fail because you still need to enter the proxy settings.

Step 5. If you're using the Wi-Fi repeater on a Windows PC, you will have to change the proxy settings. Head to Control Panel > Network and Internet. Go to Internet Options and then Connections. Click on the LAN Setting option below.

Step 6. In the Address box, enter and enter 8282 in the Port box.

Step 7. Save the settings and test your connection. You will now have access to the Wi-Fi network transmitted from your Android phone.
