probably not, if your laptop has a sticker on it saying it was built for windows 7, then you can get a program that will allow your laptop to become a hotspot (like our phones can) if not then its most likely going to be some kind of 3rd party app on both your phone and your computer.

Search the Google Play Store, and Google. if nothing shows up then your probably out of luck.

the zip is corrupt, link to the download in the app store itself instead.

also, read the description carefully, most of those types of apps need a program to run on the computer too.

no, i cant help unless i know where you got the apk from. was it from the google market? did it come with instructions? was it a 3rd party app store? what versions of android is it made for? does it need a program to run on the computer as well?

i need a link to where you got it from.

got it on the market.. its made for droid 2.2+ there isnt any app that needs to run on the pc ... u just need lg drivers installed.. i get it to show up as an network connection via usb from the phone but it just stays at "unidenified network" wont get internet access
and if you would of just installed the apk you would see that the instructions are built into the app

i think This is the app your talking about.

if it is, then take down the .apk, because its a paid app and you cant post that stuff here.

second, ICS Drivers are kinda messed up with USB tethering, so try it on an GB Rom and see if it works.

and finally, im helping you because i want to, all i asked for was a link to the market app, and you just cannot even take the time to do that, so this is all the time im going to put into helping you. if what i said above does not help, then good luck.

Edit: also, im not going to install an apk from an unreliable source. turns out, there are such things as viruses and malware for android phones.

Get the program called Connectify for your laptop. You can rebroadcast your Internet as wifi with it. Then just connect via wifi.
