  4. Disconnect the USB cable connecting your device to your computer
  5. Configure ADB so that it will connect to your Android device on the port that was specified in step 1 above:  e.g. adb connect 192.168.0.12:5555   Once this command finished the Android device is connected to the computer via WiFi.

  • When you are done debugging via WiFi, it is possible reset ADB back to USB mode with the following command: adb usb
  • To list the connected device, use the command: adb devices
