    Hi All,

    There are several applications that allow tethering (using a tablet's connection on a laptop). Are there any applications out there that support reverse tethering (use Laptop's internet connection on a tablet).

    Thanks
    Dheeraj

    Thanks.

    I ideally was looking for a wired device but this should also suffice.

    cheers

    While I do not have an alternative, that program dumps OpenCandy spyware on your computer.

    Edit: Apparently Micr$oft made a mistake while signing this particular software and it returns with an adware warning when trying to install it. From what I have read, the software is safe and adware free...Sorry for the confusion...

    There was a bug report about this. Bottom line, MS screwed up by tagging OC as adware, and now everything that includes it gets a warning. OC people looked into it, MS apologized and promised to remove the warning in future updates.

    Bottom line it's a snafu on Microsoft's part. Feel free to ignore the warning.

    The most ironic thing of all, MS advertises several products in the OpenCandy network.
