There doesn't seem to be much history of this issue, so it's tough to say what exactly is happening. You should disable your WiFi, if it is active, as that could be one potential issue. Apart from that, you might want to contact your carrier to verify that they haven't disabled that function.

Your first task should be to check whether or not you are using a genuine Samsung USB cable to connect your Samsung Galaxy 5 to the PC. Not all cables are capable of tethering two devices together and the cheaper ones are only meant to use to charge your phone. If that does not work check to see if the the phone will tether to a different PC that is similar to your own. If it does then it is possible there is a problem with your computer port.
