How do I turn on tethering to laptop or PC for my Samsung Galaxy Note4 or Galaxy A5?
The tethering is greyed out on my Note4 or Galaxy A5. I am trying to connect my phone to my laptop or PC with the tethering option, but it is greyed out. Do you have an idea what might be the problem?
- 1First of all, connect only using your original cable or a Samsung cable that is specifically compatible with either Note4 (for Note4) or A5 (for A5).
- 2Tap on "Apps" > "Settings" > "More settings" > "Mobile networks" > check "Mobile data".Enable mobile data by pressing the home button.
- 3Sometimes, network operators opt to gain revenue from those who like the tethering option and charge extra to enable that option. After you have paid for the service and it has been added, reboot your smartphone. The option should no longer be greyed out.Then, you need to contact your carrier or enter the control panel (dashboard, self-service) on the Web site of the carrier to modify your services and add tethering.
The Samsung tablet does not allow USB tethering, it is grayed out on the tethering settings?
I connect the tablet with the USB to my laptop or computer, but it is grayed out. The USB cable does not have a problem because it works fine on another tablet. I checked for a software update, but there is no update available. I have checked the cable and it is not malfunctioning. I have tried: I have checked for software updates, it is up to date.
I have connected the same cable to another tablet and it works well. I also tried to use the other tablet which is working well with both USB cables with no problems. I think it was caused by: I think the software of tablet has a problem? It seems that the USB might be disabled.
