Step 4: Open System Preferences on your Mac. Then click Network and select your Android USB. If you don’t see it, click to add it. If you are already connected to Wi-Fi (or another connection), your Personal Hotspot connection might not activate until you uncheck “Disable unless needed” under Status.
