Cannot get my Asus Desktop to identify or pick up cell phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • My husband has a Samsung Galaxy Express.  Our wireless router works just fine with the television in the living room (LCD/LED Samsung Smart TV) and the Playstation 3 in the house, no problems with the X-Box but the Wi-Fi Server willnot recognize my husbands Samsung Galaxy Express.  I have tried to fix this using my own knowledge but now.....I am obessing about it as he an connect to any hotspot anywhere in the world. He uses virtually no data .... ZERO.......except at our home.  AT&T told me that the ONLY PLACE THAT SHOW DATA USE IS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.   I asked them what I could do about it and all I was told was to fix my wi-fi to allow his cell phone access to our services.  I've worked with Charter (our cable & Internet provider) and AT&T....they can't figure it our. 

    Am I stupid because I can't even get the computer to acknowledge or recognize the phone (Samsung Galaxy Express) when I go through the recognition of printers & devices in the control panel......I knew I had been out of the loop since I am disabled and haven't worked in ten years but.....OMG, I feel like I am out ther in lala land because I can't do anything as simple as get the computer to recognize the device and not use his entire data pkg at home.

    Please help before I pull every hair out of my head.

    THANK YOU ALL!!!

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.
