How to Share Internet on ZTE Z557

ZTE Z557

ZTE Z557 smartphone has a full range of functions necessary for comfortable use of the device. In particular, it supports ways of sharing your Internet. It allows you to set up a network connection for those devices where it is not available (for example, if your friend's smartphone does not have 4G, or if Wi-Fi does not work on your computer). We simply need to figure out how to share the Internet on ZTE Z557.

Important Points

Before turning to the methods of using the function, it is necessary to focus on some others aspects that will allow us to avoid misunderstandings. The Internet sharing option is available on all devices based on the current version of Android, including ZTE Z557. The principle of its operation lies in the fact that the phone is used as a Wi-Fi access point, so it becomes a kind of a router for other devices.

For the option to function on ZTE Z557, 3G or 4G mobile connection must be active, and Wi-Fi must be disabled. But even this is not enough, since mobile operators can set their own restrictions. In particular, users of unlimited Internet access plans will not be able to distribute traffic. In most cases, the option works only on plans that provide a limited gigabyte package. However, this information can be checked with your operator.

Internet Sharing Methods

The function of ZTE Z557 which provides access to the network to other devices works completely free of charge, if the corresponding restrictions are not set by your mobile operator. You can use it in a variety of ways.

Via Wi-Fi

The most popular way that ZTE Z557 owners use the most. To share the Internet via Wi-Fi you will need to:

  1. Open the devices settings.
  2. Go to the "Connections" section (the name may differ depending on the firmware version), and then to "Mobile Hotspot and Tethering".
  3. Enable the option.

Next you need to enable Wi-Fi on the device that you want to connect to an access point, and select ZTE Z557 using the list of available networks.

Via Bluetooth

This method largely copies the previous version, but in this case the network is shared not via Wi-Fi, but via Bluetooth. However, the Internet itself works wirelessly. To set up a connection, you will need to follow steps 1-3 from the previous method and then activate the "Bluetooth tethering" slider or put a checkmark in front of it.

To connect on a device that should receive traffic, you must activate Bluetooth and connect to ZTE Z557 through the list of available Bluetooth networks.

Via USB

An excellent option for those who want to share their Internet to a computer that does not support a wireless Wi-Fi connection. In this case, traffic is transmitted via USB, for which a complete cable is used:

  1. Activate USB tethering in your phone settings.
  2. Connect your device to your PC.
  3. Confirm the “USB tethering” mode on the smartphone screen.
  4. Open the list of available networks on your computer, and then activate the new connection.

Now ZTE Z557 will distribute gigabytes of mobile traffic to your computer without using a wireless Wi-Fi network. At any time, the connection can be interrupted by accessing the device settings or by disconnecting the USB cable.

Via an Application

If you can't distribute traffic using built-in tools, you can try a special app like FoxFi. It is available on Google Play and works in a similar way. To activate the access point, you just need to open the application, set a password and check the “Activate Wi-Fi Hotspot” box.

If necessary, you can use any other similar program. In any case, the owner of ZTE Z557 will have access to the entire list of functions, including a connection via Bluetooth or USB.
