Your other computer is expecting to see a wireless network, and the SSID is the wireless network 'name'. You probably need to reset this to go to the internet via your mobile rather than the wireless network.

So are you trying to tether your phone to your HP computer for internet? IF you are some carriers will allow you to do this but it is an additional cost in order to do this. I would first check with your carrier to make sure that it is part of your service, or you might end up with some charges that you did not mean to incur.

How can I share an internet connection using a PC?


On your PC, open up Control Panel, click on Network And Internet, Click on Network and Sharing Center, then on the left side click on Change Adapter settings. On the tethered iPhone connection, right click and select Properties. On the Sharing tab, check the box to share that devices connection with other devices on the network. Click OK and close out of the open Network connections window. Connect your ethernet cable from your computer to your router's Internet/WAN port and run the router setup. If the setup does not detect the network correctly, configure it to use DHCP.

If the shared connection method doesn't work, try selecting both your LAN and iPhone connections in the Network Connections screen, right clicking, and selecting Bridge. Then proceed with instructions as written.

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!

Tablet will not connect to wifi


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.

Can I use the Samsung alias 2 is an Internet modem


    Using Alias 2 as Modem
  1. The Alias 2 can, in fact, be used as an external modem to connect your computer to the Internet. To do this, the phone must plug into the computer via USB. The USB data cable specific for the phone is purchased separately and can be found at most any cellular phone store and eBay. Because USB is a powered connection, anytime the phone is plugged into the computer for use as a modem, it will also remain charging, so you don't have to worry about battery life while online.

    In addition to the cable, you must subscribe to a specific service through your cellular provider in order to use the Alias 2 as a modem. This plan will be a "tethering" plan and will have a separate charge each month to use it, similar to a cell phone's data plan. By signing up for this feature, your phone will be able to dial into the data network and utilize the Internet connection as a modem, allowing any connected computer to surf the Internet. Once this feature has been activated on your account the option will become available on the phone itself to enable tethering.

    At this point, you should be able to turn on tethering, connect the phone to your computer via USB cable and select the phone on your computer as an Internet connection source.

    It is important to note, however, that the Alias 2 uses a different and slightly older system on the 3G cellular network. Because of this, using the phone as an external modem will produce a slightly slower Internet connection than a traditional modem or even a newer phone would. However, as a backup solution for Internet connectivity or a travel solution, the Alias 2 will work just fine as a modem for your computer or laptop.
