Default [Q] Connect to internet via laptop

Hi,

I searched to find a way to connect my Note to my laptop's internet, but couldn't find a way.

I have no wifi router and therefor I wonder if there is a way to surf internet in my Note by using laptop's internet connection.


Thanks for any suggestions

Connectify. Or reverse tethering (search for it in Android apps section).

Talking Thank you

After trying so hard to get the first option to work on my PC i had to give up.

Tried second one and downloaded the trial from google play and I am now amaized how fast and good this is working. Now I have full internet access on my Note. As fast as my PC's. But you have to use the cable thou.

There's a new app called Opengarden. I haven't tried it, but it looks promising. It uses bluetooth, I think.

Default Not same

Opengarden is not supporting reverse tethering it is tethering. It means you can use Opengarden to use your mobile's internet on your pc, not your pc's internet on your mobile like reverse tethering. Two diffrent apps.

Just so i've the picture clear, are you using a 3G Dongle to connect to the net on your laptop.

Edit: Have you tried something like this yet? http://lifehacker.com/5369381/turn-y...reless-hotspot

I am using a cable. It is student biulding and I connect the cable to my PC and the internet is there.

The problem is that the galaxy Note does NOT support AD Hock as I tried much and changed some system setings from /system/bin. If there was a solution for NOTE to support Ad Hock it would be amaizing.
