Tethering means sharing the Internet connection of an Internet-capable mobile phone with other devices. (Wikipedia). (For all non native eng. speakers). – r4. Jan 25 '12 at 9:54
I have laptop with Fedora OS, and I want to create Dial up connection in it. It is not sharing Internet Connection. – user106764 Jan 25 '12 at 9:57
