    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    Not exactly sure what you're trying to do. Copy files between the PC and the phone, or use the phone's internet on the PC (tethering)? For the best help with getting your phone setup properly, go to Samsung Galaxy Y - Android Forums. :D

    Welcome to AF! :)

    What I think you're trying to set up is called an Adhoc network? Do you want to share your PC's internet connection with the phone?

    Ah right. Unfortunately, that's not possible using the stock software on the phone. It's available in some custom ROMs and Google implemented it in Android 4.0, but if you're running an non rooted handset with 4.0 or below, you're not going to have much joy I'm afraid, sorry.

    If you head to the forums Lunatic linked you too, the guys there might have a solution or suggest a custom ROM with that ability if you're willing to go down that route.
