    I would like to use my phone as a modem.
    I have a draytek 2926 router that can accept an external USB modem. I tried with a USB modem stick a friend lent me and it worked fine.
    So I tried to conned my Redmi Note 8T without success. I switched on the USB tethering but it doesn't work.
    I am not an expert so I cannot understand if it Is a matter of configuration or router and phone are not compatible.
    Someone can help me?

    I don't know how to do it know but in the 1990s it was easy. Not this OS.

    what exactly are u trying to do? you can't connect your phone to a router. your phone can act as THE router. you can connect your laptop or desktop directly to the phone via tethering provided your carrier allows this. with some carriers, you will need to have a plan included to use wireless tethering, however.

    I've used my phoneas a wireless router using the Hot Spot feature, in the UK on Three (3) network. with 4G it works really well. You just need to set up the mobile hotspot on the phone, give it an SSID and password, enable it annd you're good to go, just connect to it as normal on the laptop with the password. that's it.
