    USB Tethering Still Not Working???

    so, the same as usual when it comes to my luck: I'm trying to tether my internet connection from my note 5 to my PC via USB, and it doesn't work. here are a few details that I can give you of what occurs when I try to do this:

    I plug in my phone via usb, and it recognizes it off the bat.
    I go to my settings in android and enable usb tethering.
    windows makes the sound that happens when you disconnect a device, then proceeds to slow down. WAY down.
    I hover over the network icon in the system tray, and it just shows the line for loading or identifying.
    clicking on the icon or trying to open the network and sharing center while I'm in usb tether mode results in nothing.
    I did however manage to disable tethering, them open the network and sharing center, then enable my usb tethering. from there, it shows my device in the center, but says that it is disabled.
    I right click and select ENABLE, it says "ENABLING", then "ENABLED", but does not actually enable my device.

    Check with your cell provider to see if terhering is allowed with your package.

    ATT takes tethering away, along with WiFI hotspot on their Unlimited Data plan that they rolled out again.

    That is why I am thinking your provider may be doing the same.

I know that you can use Linux to connect to Internet via bluetooth on your Android phone, and it runs smoothly, more less, but Windows seems to be far more problematic when it comes to this. Is there such a possibility? And if so, how?
