    I want to download available software updates on my Lumia 520 via a USB cable connection from my Laptop (Windows 7). The Laptop is connected to ADSL. With ADSL available (no Wifi), I'd prefer to do it this way in order to safe on phone data.

    I fail to find the route to follow to do this.

    Can anyone please assist me here.

    Thank you.

    WiFi only, OTA, if you have a wireless card in your laptop you can internet share for the phone.

    The other option is using the Lumia recovery software but that wipes your phone clean... which is not always a bad thing.

    If you happen to have WiFi on your laptop follow these instructions to turn it into a hotspot.
