Internet connection failing with Galaxy Tab 2

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I have been working online with my Galaxy Tab 2 as a modem using my HP Pavilion PC, recently I have noticed working on the PC the internet connects fast, but when I try using my Tablet, You tube buffers endlessly and I cannot get a video playing, on the PC it plays well with few buffering, what could be wrong with my Tablet? How can I get the same speeds on my device?

You can share the internet connection on your Wi-Fi-enabled phone with your laptop. Since both devices support Wi-Fi connectivity, this type of connection sharing is very easy to setup. To share your Android phone’s internet connection, you need to convert it into a Wi-Fi hotspot. When a Wi-Fi hotspot is created, your laptop can connect to the internet via the hotspot your phone created.

To do this, on your Android phone, turn on the Wi-Fi connection then connect to your Wi-Fi network. Once your phone is connected to your home Wi-Fi, on your phone, go to “Settings” then under “Wireless Networks”, tap “More”. Next, go to “Tethering and portable hotspot” then “Wi-Fi hotspot”. If this is the first time you will use it, go to “Set up Wi-Fi hotspot” then configure it.

Under “Network name”, enter the name of the hotspot. Under “Security”, select a security protocol like “WPA2 PSK” then enter the password for your Wi-Fi hotspot. When you are finished, tap “Save”. After this, your Wi-Fi hotspot should be turned on automatically. And that’s it. Just connect your laptop to the hotspot you created and make sure the password is correct.
