Unfortunately, you cannot tether two Android devices -- in this case, your Samsung Galaxy S5 and your Samsung Galaxy Tab S -- through a USB cable. You will have to open up your Samsung Galaxy S5's WiFi hotspot feature to tether its internet with your Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Follow the steps in this great VisiHow article to learn how to turn on your Samsung Galaxy S5's WiFi hotspot so you can tether your Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Note: WiFi tethering is an additional plan that your carrier will have to enable on your account. It may cost extra money. Call your carrier to make sure that you have the plan enabled before you activate your Samsung Galaxy S5's WiFi hotspot.

How can I access Internet from my laptop, by tethering it to my Galaxy S5?

I wanted to tether my Galaxy S5 to my laptop, for the purpose of accessing the internet. I have phone service, but no internet access at a remote work location. I am able to tether the two units together, but the internet is not available. I have an unlimited data plan, so how can this be remedied?
