    Any compatible Android-Windows 8 tethering software out?


    I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire One AO756-4890 11.6 Netbook PC - Intel Pentium Processor 987 with 64-bit Windows 8. Using EasyTether on my Samsung Galaxy III, I can browse the contents of the folders on the smartphone but cannot tether the laptop to the internet although I can tether an older model of Acer One to the internet using the same smartphone. I am inclined to ascribe the problem to the compatibility of the software with Windows 8 and have tried other tethering software with no luck.

    Does anyone know any tethering software compatible with Windows 8? Please let me know.

    EasyTether works for me flawlessly on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I think it may have to do with the specific carrier. I'm using Verizon Wireless and my laptop is a Toshiba Satellite C655-5225.... All I did was follow the on screen instructions in the EasyTether application on my phone and it worked seemlessly.
