connect your phone to pc using data cable...
go to settings->wireless and network settings->tethering and portable hotspot
and enable USB tethering check box... and you should be able to access net on your pc

not sure of this feature is present in froyo or in 2.3.4 gingerbread but i have tested it on 2.3.6 and it works fine no extra app or software required to connect to the pc. just make sure the phone drivers are installed..

if you have wifi adapter for your pc you can use a software called connectifyme to create a wifi hotspot... i used i for a while before i got a router and it worked fine.

you can't connect galaxy ace duos to pc/laptop internate through usb. I looged a complaint in samsung and this is the answere i got it from them. Only way to connet to internate is using wifi hot spot. If you have internet on your home, purchase any compatible wifi Router. Use your phone to connect to the router using wifi (i havn't tried yet, but this is an official confirmation from samsung service).
