I am in a remote location where the only possible way to access the internet is through a mobile broad band connection. I need to connect an android tablet to the internet, but it has no USB slot, so I cannot just plug the modem on it, besides at times I might need internet access simultaneously in both a desktop PC and the tablet, so it would be better if I could share the connection among this two devices. I have a TP-LINK TL-WR740N wireless router which I'm trying to use to do the trick, but I haven't being able to set it up right.
I'm connecting the PC to the router with a regular network cable, then sharing the internet connection with the wireless connection, then connecting the PC wirelesslly, after that I can connect the tablet to the LAN and access a small web page hosted on the PC however I don't have any internet access. I've being experimenting with different IP setups but no luck.
Like I said, I am on a remote location so I must do it with what I have, any ideas?
The PC is running Windows 7, I've tried by setting up and ad hoc network but it is not detected by the tablet. I downloaded "Virtual Router" but it is unable to detect my broadband modem.
