JioFi USB Tethering via. USB Cable

Once you have configured your JioFi device for the internet, you can straightaway connect it to your PC as well. We tested the device with a Lenovo Ultrabook loaded with Windows 10. Once the device is connected to the PC using a USB cable, we were able to access the internet straight away. The icon on the bottom right-hand corner of your Windows PC taskbar will change to USB-connected internet connection and that’s all you need to do. See the screenshots below for your reference:

          In Windows 7, if there is a legit driver available, it should automatically detect and download it, provided you are already connected to the internet.
