Infuse USB tether

Infuse USB tether

I'm trying to tether my Infuse with my Win 7 laptop. When I enable USB thethering on the device, the laptop is unable to find a driver.  I tried finding a driver on Samsung's site, but no luck.

 

Has anyone been successful using the USB tether function on the Infuse?  I know I can use the WiFi hotspot function, but I'd rather not in some places.

 

Thanks,

Ken

would suspct that it might be based off of ATT tethering software and the simple fact you  need a tethering authorized data plan for it to work

I've got a tethering plan, and the WiFi tethering works, so that's not it. I also followed the link in the phone's help docs (directs you to Samsung's support downloads), but all that's there is the Infuse user guide.

Also, ACM doesn't list the Infuse as a supported device...

You don't need ACM. That is for using your phone as DUN modem.

 

Anyway, the driver you want is something called 'Samsung Android USB Remote NDIS Network Device'. It is probably installed via one of the Samsung Kies software packages.

This is the software you need. It is on the samsung page, if you would have looked to the right of the word manuals it says Software. But here is the link  http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/SEG-I997ZKAATT
