    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

    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. :(
