You do not mention if you have an iphone or android phone (or your provider, or how old the phone is) so it is difficult to tell you exactly how to handle this. First I would talk to your cell phone provider and see if they have a solution - which they very well might. Most of the providers have hotspots built into their phones these days.

If they do not, search in the Play Store for Android or the Apple Store for iPhone and look for tethering. Alternatively, you can check this Google Search out and see if something here will help you: https://www.google.com/#q=tether%20phone%20to%20computer


Keep in mind that tethering your phone to your computer may be against your provider's TOS (Terms of Service) and it may get you in trouble with them.

Hope that helps!

Tether phone laptop


Tery,

Usually when one tethers it is done from the phone to obtain internet for devices such as laptops, tablets or other devices. There are ways to share internet from computers but that is usually done over the network and could not confirm it could be done with a phone. That being said, If you are indeed looking to Tether the laptop to the Phone's internet it would depend on the phone you were trying to use to determine how this would be easiest done.

Depending on the phone some are designed with a Hotspot mode that can be found under the settings of most smartphones and will allow you to access it as a wireless access point. This is contingent on the phone service vender as it will charge you data to use this technology.

If your phone does not support any type of "Hotspot" mode then we would be looking at the possiblity of connecting the phone via USB to allow for internet passthrough. Again this is all depending on the type of phone.

If you can inform me of the type of phone you have and exactly what you hope to achieve I would be more than happy to help further.

Good luck!

Tip

Use ANdroid phones as Modems when using laptop or desktop(pc).


The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.



Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:

Android phone
Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system
USB cable

You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.



The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.

Four popular Android tethering apps are:

PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app.
EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone.
Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted.
Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.

(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)

Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.



HOW TO

Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.

There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!

LG GW520 Cell phone to connect to the laptop


The owner's / user's manual to your phone gives a complete detail on how to do this. Refer to the following pages: 7, 70-77, and pages 80+
Depending upon the cell phone service provider contract that you signed up for, does it include internet service? Or is it a separate fee?
Anyway, if you lost your owner's / user's manual, you can download it by signing up (free subscription) at www.manualslib.com

When you tether with your Android-powered smartphone, you can connect to the Internet on your computer from any location covered by your cellphone service provider's network. Tethering allows your phone to act as a modem for the computer. Tethering applications such as Tether for Android allow you to set up tethering without the need to root your phone. Before tethering, check with your cellphone service provider to determine how much data you are allowed to use without incurring data charges. Excessive use of the Android phone as a modem can cause you to exceed your allotted data.

Search the Android Market on your phone for a tethering application. Applications such as EasyTether and PdaNet are available to download for free. Download the application from the Market. Installation begins immediately after the download. When installation finishes, an icon for the tethering app is placed on the Android's expanded home screen. Open a Web browser on the computer and access the site specified in the tethering application's description in the Market. Download and install the USB drivers needed to tether from the site. When installation is finished, an icon for the tethering application is placed on the computer's desktop. Tap "Settings" on your Android phone, then tap "Applications." Tap "Development" and enable "USB Debugging." When the field turns green, it is enabled. Connect the phone to the computer with its USB cable. Launch the tethering application on the phone. Launch the application on the computer. Click the option to connect to the Internet in the home screen. When the connection is established, confirmation is displayed in the status window.

I have samsung sgh x200 mobile set and i need gprs modem to connect with laptop


Here's the link to the website to download the Samsung PC Studio Internet Access software to your PC. This software should allow you to use your phone as a modem to tether a PC to the Internet.

Keep in mind, however that you will need a Data plan on your account or you'll run up an extremely large phone bill while tethering. One more thing: it's a good idea to download and use Google Chrome as your PC's browser while tethering, too.

Can i brows web through pc suit with lg kg 300? is it advisable? from where i can download it?


I just checked the specs on your phone. It looks like your phone does not have the capability to access the Internet through PAM (Phone As Modem). As such, you cannot connect your computer to the Internet by using your phone - which is also called 'Tethering'. (If this is your question.)

There are many other phones which you can use to tether your phone to your PC to surf the Internet. However, only a few cellular providers allow this. The ones that do severely limit both the bandwidth (speed) and the amount of monthly data usage when tethering.

If you do decide to tether I STRONGLY advise you to use the New Google Chrome Browser on your PC when you surf the Web. It's much faster (which you'll need due to the decreased bandwidth).

When you look for a phone you can use to tether, (like the Samsung Jack SGH-i637 for example) look to make sure it has an Internet sharing option in it's installed programs. (I use my Samsung Jack when I tether my laptop to the Internet when I travel.) And, I use Google Chrome as my browser when I do.
