    Can't get Internet access from iPhone 6s with USB cable


    This is a perpetual issue: After an update (not sure if it's on the Windows or iPhone side), I can no longer get an Internet connection through my iPhone 6s with a USB cable. I've lost track of how many times this problem has arisen.

    In the past, I've fixed it by:

    (1) Updating the USB driver (Apple Mobile Device USB Device) - OR

    (2) Turning off IPv6 in the wireless network adapter.

    But this time, I can't figure it out. The computer can see the iPhone as a USB device, so I can access its hard drive through File Explorer. And iTunes recognizes the iPhone. So it's not the USB cable, and the driver seems to be up to date. But I can't establish an Internet hotspot connection with a USB cable. (I can do so through a wireless connection, but this is problematic for other reasons.)

    Any other ideas?
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum. You need your network set to DHCP or it won't work as it has to get IP from phone.it can be connected a few ways it's often the iTunes driver that's at fault

    OK, thanks -- can you give me a hint as to how to do this? I Googled it but, I didn't find what I need to do, I think.
