    Question Using internet on Galaxy Tab using internet-enabled WiFi Laptop

    Hi,

    I just bought myself a Galaxy Tab GT-p1010, which has only WiFi and no 3g.

    I use a laptop at home on which i connect to the internet using a Reliance Netconnect+ device.
    The laptop, unfortunately, runs Windows Vista (not sp1, not sp2. never been updated since it was installed over four years ago), and due to complicated reasons, upgrades are not possible.

    I was wondering if there is a way where I can make the laptop act as a kinda wireless router to which the galaxy tab can connect and use the internet from.

    I tried Connectify, but i think because it does not support Vista (versions before SP2, at least), it gave me an 'unhandled exception' error.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Vishnu

    If your using wifi dongle, then you can make a ad hoc network with your spare wifi adapter(in your Lappy) to connect your tab, using bridge mode or setup wizard.

    P.S: you should update your os(strongly recommended) or upgrade your os to win7(advised).

    Hm, yeah, i know about the OS, but the laptop isnt mine.

    Anyway, i just read that android doesnt detect Ad-hoc networks!
    That's bad news indeed. I dont know what can be done now.

    Ideas?

    Wifi router is the only option then.-/ // (in case of the os restriction).

    P.S: try public places to access net like malls, office and cafe ect.-)
