hello - technophobe having trouble tethering
I'm the proud owner of a new Samsung Galaxy S2. I'm not brilliant with technology so Ithink I'll be on here a lot and hope people can help out.
I've got a laptop running Windows XP and I'm trying to use my new phone as a wifi hotspot. I've installed drivers for the phone (Samsung USB driver for mobile phones) and have installed Kies.
I've read that I need to install tetherxp.inf file. I've downloaded it but I can't seem to get any futher. When I plug my phone in now it doesn't come up with the "found new hardware" like i did the first time (because I've already installed the USB driver?).
My laptop does find the S2 wireless however. If I set the setting to "open" then I can launch Google chrome on the laptop but it won't connect to the internet.
The settings for the S2 have either "open" or "WPA2 PSK". When I try changing the settings on the laptop for the wireless connection, I can get WPA but now WPA2 - does that make any difference?
Sorry for rambling on, but I don't want to keep the phone unless I can tether and I've only got 6 days before I can return it.
Thanks for any help
