    Hi,

    I will be traveling and would like to connect my Galaxy S to by Laptop to use it as a Internet connection.

    Galaxy S ==> Laptop (wired) ==> Internet

    I've searched a bit but so far only found out how to use my phone as a Internet gateway but not the other way around. The reason is that I don't want to incur expensive roaming changes on my data plan since my laptop is connected at my office.

    Thanks
    Alan

    Simply put, IMPOSSBILE.

    I know you can do this with Windows Mobile, but on an Android that's impossible.

    But if you have Windows 7, you can connect your phone to your laptop via wifi. Just search for Connectify. It's free.
