I'm having some issues tethering my internet connection from an Android to my MacBook. It must be an issue with the MacBook, as it works on Ubuntu without a problem. A tried to re-pair the device and even remove the configuration from network settings and add it again but with no luck so far. Any ideas?

    If you could please clarify what you are trying to accomplish by pairing the two devices. Are you looking to share files, set one or the other as a WiFi hotspot, or whatever you are attempting. Commented Apr 9, 2018 at 18:49

I had to install a system extension called HoRNDIS in order for it to work.

Link: HoRNDIS on GitHub

UPDATE: macOS will be disabling system extension in the 10.16 version, so I have no idea what the solution will be then.
