    Guess I need to be more specific. Our wireless phone is through Qwest here in Utah and is a Mogul by HTC. I have downloaded the windows mobile device through www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/activesync. I have already checked to see that the USB connection is on in the settings on the Mogul. We have talked to Qwest (our phone company) and they can't do anything. My laptop is a Toshiba with the Vista program and I spent over 45 minutes with a Toshiba tech. who went through all the components on the laptop and says everything is in order.

    I desperately need to be able to connect my laptop to the internet for a class I teach in a building that does not have an internet provider so I must use internet sharing through the wireless phone.

    I have tried everything I can think of, including searching the internet for solutions, and hope you can help me!

Is this your first time attempting to opperate one off of the other? Also, most of the time it requires a special packages from your cell phone provider in order to opperate the internet off of your cell phone. Have you already checked into this with your provider? I'm unsure of the model of your cell phone in order to check the situation further.

Let us know more details if you can otherwise get back to us on the provider situation.

Thanks for your post!

Hello my name is prakash i used window7 in my PC problem is me connect my tablet in my PC via cable and start internet but not open any sites why Please solve my problem Thanks


Hi Prakash, you will probably needs to provide a bit more information of the issue, but from what you are sying it sounds like you will need to turn on Internet Connection Sharing on you PC so your laptop can use the internet connection from your PC. Perhaps better solution will be to get wireless access point and use your tablet via the wireless.

If you have issues have a look at the link i shared.

To enable ICS, on your host computer:
  • Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.
  • Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.

How to connect pc with micromax Q5 mobile. I am using vodafone prepaid connection.


you connect via a usb cable or bluetooth which is a wireless connection. if you have tried connecting with a usb cable, what happens? If the device cannot be seen or recognized by your pc the most common reason is that you dont see a device you plugged in is that you dont have the proper drivers installed on your pc. See what error meesages you get, and troubleshoot! Are you saying your internet connection on your PC is via vodafone usb dongle? This should not affect your ability to connect a mobile phone via a usb cable which should work without being connected to the internet. Its all a question of hsving the correct drivers, but some software wont work with the dongle software, which has to be uninstalled. Troubleshoot for the correct drivers them get technical help from micromax

R/sir i could not connect my cellphone to PC how to connect this please help me


For your Cell phone to able to connect to your PC, you must have a cable that can connect your phone to a PC via a USB Cable or your phone must have a Blue tooth wireless adapter on your PC and your Phone.

Install the USB cable driver or the Blue tooth software on your PC.
Connect your phone via the USB cable to your PC, or from your phone search for the blue tooth device of your PC.

Sir when i am connect my nokia2626 mobile phone to pc via nokia pc suit when it's not work correctly and the main proble is that when i want to connect my pc to internet using my phone then message shows...


Hi!
You have to select the mode of connection.. through blutooth or by usb data cable.

If by blutooth, you have to stable the pairing of the phone and the pc.. You also need to make sure that your phone has already the settings that your phone provider has sent you to access by phone.. If you can access the net from your phone then its ok to surf internet on your pc via phone as your model.
You also will need to set your phone as your modem.. how? go to control panel and select Phone and Modem, there set up the phone as modem.

If this things are done, then go with your pc suit again and try connecting.

If you are trying to connect via usb data cable.. you will need first to install the driver of your cable before you can start pairing your phone to your pc via pc suit.

I hope i gave you a better idea with that.
Much appreciated if you could rate this help. Thanks

Internet connection sharing


To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.
