Connect phone to computer on work wifi

I'm new to AirDriod. The main reason I wanted to use it was to it was to text from my computer while at work. The issue I'm running into is that my phone won't connect to my computer when my computer is connected to my wifi at work (I can't connect my phone to my work wifi). Surely I'm not the only one to run into this issue? Help!

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

We would like to confirm with you that whether Airdroid running on your device when you
sign in Airdroid web?

When you sign in web Airdroid you should make sure that Airdroid is keeping running on the background, because sometimes it will killed by the phone's process.

So, would you like to restart Airdroid on your device again to see if it works?

You can also go to phone setting to make a set that allow AirDroid keeping running on the background.



Feel free to let us know if you need further help.

Best Regards,
Niki

Re: Connect phone to computer on work wifi

If your PC has a wireless card (all modern laptops do) and gets its internet over a wired ethernet cable, all you have to do is turn on Internet Connection Sharing. ICS will then turn the PC's wifi card into a wireless access point, complete with SSID, optional password, etc. Your phone can then connect to the PC's wifi network and piggyback over the PC's wired Internet connection.

It may take you a couple tries to get it right since it's easy to mix up the two network adapters while trying to follow the instructions.
