Share your phone connection with a WiFi Extender

First connect your phone to 3G / 4G / 5G, then share your phone's connection by making a WiFi Hotspot.

Configure your WiFi Extender to connect to your phone, and then connect an ethernet cable between the WiFi Extender and the LAN port of the POE Adaptor.

 

Share your phone connection with a LTE router

Share your phone connection with a linux laptop

Use this method if you are comfortable enough with Linux. Please note depending on your linux distribution the procedure might be different.

For this you need to have a ethernet port on your laptop, or use a USB to ethernet adaptor.

Activate IP masquerading on your laptop:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o <phone-network-interface> -j MASQUERADE

Then, you need to run a DHCP server on your laptop's ethernet interface. Check if your network manager has such function, otherwise you can disable it for the ethernet interface and use other software such as dnsmasq.
