Default Can I get Internet on tablet when connected to PC via cable?

Hi All

I'm wondering if there is anyway to be able to connected my Samsung 7.7 tablet to my laptop via a USB cable and let the tablet have access to the internet via the laptop? I can't always connect to wifi networks and I wondered it this is possible at all.

Thanks

Hey there

Only way I know this can be done is downloading "reverse tether" from the play store found here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.littlelan.ReverseTether.Trial&hl=en

It's only a trial, after that the paid app will need to be purchased.

Cheers for that. Odd thing is, when I search for that app on my PC, I find it, but when I search for that app on the tablet, I don't find it?!? Crazy, but I will keep trying.

Ahh, says my device isn't compatible with that version (I had to type your URL in to find that out). No wonder it wasn't showing as it must only show those apps compatible with my tablet. Oh well.

Eh I'm sorry for that and that seems the only way to reverse tether :/
