Your phone needs to be connected to the mobile network for tethering to work. You cannot use your phone's WiFi connection with your Laptop. If your phone is connected to the mobile network and tethering still doesn't work, you will need to call your carrier to make sure that you're paying for tethering. Some carriers don't include tethering as a part of your plan and you will have to pay extra. If tethering still won't work for you, you'll need to take your device in for repairs, as it sounds like your WiFi chip is experiencing issues.

Hi, my Samsung won't tether to my laptop?

My tablet does but neither laptops will. They have on my HTC phone but won't on Samsung. I have tried: My provider say it isn't them and I have tried all the usual tether protocols.. I think it was caused by: I think Samsung sucks and I'm sick of it. HTC tethered all devices no problem

Will tethering always work between tethered cell and WiFi laptop?

I'm purchasing a refurbished laptop for someone but she has no WiFi and we decided she can use her cell which has tethering. I attempted to purchase a refurbished Lenovo, but store told me it will not work for this model. I thought if tethering capabilities are available, and if the laptop has WiFi, it would work. Are there obvious reasons a laptop will not accept tethering?
