Another Connectivity Option – Tethered

My laptop wifi is not working for some reason. Windows 7 recognizes that there is a device there, but it’s greyed out, so I suspect it’s a configuration issue. I didn’t want to mess with it right now, so just for the heck of it, I remembered that my Galaxy S3 supports tethering. I connected a USB cable between the phone and laptop, navigated on the phone menu to tethering, turned it on, and just like that, I’m on the Internet.

That was just way too easy. W7 supported a Linux-based phone for an IP service. That’s the way it’s supposed to work.
