Connect Android To PC Via Cable

While Duet allows you to connect through an extremely fast and performant wireless connection, you may want to connect via cable in certain situations. Here's how to do so:

1. Connect your device via cable to your PC

2. Enable "USB tethering" on your device – note, however, some devices don't have this option, so if that's the case, wired connection will not be possible for you.

   a. Go into your phone's settings (gear icon) and select "Connections" – you should see this:

   b. Select "Mobile hotspot and tethering":

  c. If your phone is already connected to your PC via cable, you should see the   option "USB Tethering" available – just tap it once and it should toggle from OFF to ON:

3. Launch Duet on your mobile device

4. Launch Duet on your PC – after a few seconds, you should see (1) show next to the Air tab

5. From the Air tab on your PC, double-click your device

6. Make sure "Enable Duet Air" is checked:

The connection via cable should be successful! Be mindful that, since the process involves tethering, your PC may end up using your phone's internet – disabling "Mobile data" should do the trick.
