    Post Newbie With A Few Questions

    Greetings everyone,

    So I bought a the Transformer EEEPad and had it for about for days before I tried to get online with it and it took me to the Asus website which showed me the NEWER Transformer Prime with the quad-core processor. After seeing this, I just had to have the Prime, so I returned my Transformer and went back to Best Buy. They told me that there were none in stock and that I would have to be put on a waiting list and that really pissed me off. So I waited and I was basically going to wait until Christmas to see if there would be something better, but then I saw the Transformer Blue and I jumped right on it.

    I've had it for about 1 1/2 weeks now and I'm still trying to figure out a few things. So I'm at work and I work in the basement (Dungeon) and the WiFi signal down here sucks! Is there a way I can tether from my laptop to get an internet connection?

    Thanks in advance for any help given.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Interesting username I must say....

    Ok, so if your computer has Windows Vista or Windows 7 (and probably Windows 8) you can do one of two things (for free):

    Install Connectify on your computer, and it will broadcast an infractructure WiFi access point that you can use.

    Another option is to connect your TF300 to your laptop via the USB cable. Then go to Settings - Networks - More - Tethering - USB Tethering and enable it. After you do this, you will have to enable that new network connection for the TF to be shared with your internet connection (WiFi or LAN).

    Here is an article on the MS website for setting up internet connection sharing: Using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

    Moved to TF300 Help.
