Default Installing Kies without internet connection

Hello Forum Guys

Imagine that SGS2 tethering is going to be your only way to use Internet on your PC.
You get Kies from another machine and then you get stuck installing it as it requires internet access.
In my case if I got the access before I would not need SGS2 for that.
Maybe this is not a common problem, and in Samsung they have not taken it into consideration, but I would like to hear your opinion or advice.
regards - D.

I think your fubared unless you can borrow another phone to tether or a dongle, although I don't remember having my phone connected during the installation of Kies but I did after to install the drivers.
Do you have the Kies PC application downloaded? Has it asked for a internet access and if so when during the installation does it ask?

Hi JayJ

Yes, Kies PC. As far as I remember well it asked for connection just after unpacking.
Of course I took my previous phone (SE K800i, by the way never any problems with it, besides connection speed) and the installation went smoothly.
Another approach (just for test, an maybe useful in future) was to install PdaNet and then Kies using PdaNet connection.

thanks and regards - D

Kies absolutely sucks . However , I have a solution for you . You see , you dont need the AWFULL KIES for anything . To connect your sg2 to your pc for internet : go -- settings-- then -- wirless and network -- then --Tethering and portable hotspot - then - check USB tethering - --then plug in your micro to usb to usb cable between phone to pc - then shazam -- you got net you can also connect as a wi-fi hotspot . I have connected both ways and the cable is a much better way to go . I do this daily and I never use Kies for anything . Dont waste your time with Kies . To transfer data use USB storage option .
