    I connected my samsung galaxy y using usb tethering device to my desktop. I'm using Windows 7. I enable my internet connection, but in ipv4 and ipv6 field, there's "no internet access." I allowed the internet sharing for other networks for my computer, still, it doesn't work.

    =( I don't have a wifi connection, but only a cable connection. I had followed everything I read from the internet but it doesn't work.

    How to connect to the internet using usb cable? Anyone, please??? help me.:thinking:

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums. I've never attempted such a connection so I'm not a good source for help. I would suggest clicking into the area of the Galaxy Y group and ask the good users there for some assistance. Here is a link to that area:
    Samsung Galaxy Y - Android Forums You might want to consider a router purchase. A wifi connection is very easily achieved and routers can be had quite reasonable these days. Have fun and thanks for joining AF.

    You can enable Setting > Wireless xxx > Tethering hot spot > 'USB Tethering' on your mobile. Make sure Tethering symbol appears on your mobile notification bar. Make sure there is enough tower / reception / signal.

    Create 'Ad Hoc' Network on your laptop. And connect to the internet. I followed the steps in the following link, and I was able to connect.

    Hope it helps.
