How to install NETGEAR on PC when sharing mobiles internet connection to PC

I am using my mobile´s internet connection to get wifi on my PC (sharing hotspot from mobile to PC) but I can´t seem to get NETGEAR to work. I have followed all instructions and even tried manually inputting data. Doesn´t work. My phone´s network doesn´t show so I can´t click on it to start it.

 

It worked fine when traveling and using the wifi network of the hotel. Now I´m back and don´t have internet at home so I am sharing a connection from my phone to my PC.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks all!

What NETGEAR wifi router model do you have? R or RAX something?

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
Be sure your using a good quality LAN cable between the modem and router. CAT6 is recommended. 

 

Be sure to review the installation guide and user manuals found here for your model router to set it up and get it working:
