To use your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge's internet on your laptop:

1. **Enable Hotspot**: Go to Settings > Connections > Mobile Hotspot and Tethering, then turn on Mobile Hotspot.

2. **Connect Laptop**: On your laptop, find the hotspot network name (SSID) and enter the password provided by your phone.

3. **Start Browsing**: Your laptop can now use your phone's internet connection. Remember to monitor data usage and battery life on your phone.

Whoops, sorry -- I misread your question and thought you wanted to share the laptop's internet connection with the phone.

I agree with Sufian and joeldf above.

hi on the laptop,
  1. Select Start , then select Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile hotspot.

it is written in red # we cant set up mobile hotspot because your pc does n t have a ehternet wifi or cellular connection.#

ps the laptop on the right side is not on airplane mode .

what to do?

Ok, I'm a bit confused now. Please clarify -- are you trying to share the phone's internet connection (i.e., the data connection you have through your cellular plan) with the laptop? Or are you trying to share your laptop's internet connection (i.e., from the Ethernet plug or Wi-Fi connection) to the phone? Which device doesn't have its own internet connection?
