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?

    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
    .
    Sometimes, 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.
