WiFi Tether for Root Users Description

WiFi Tether for Root Users

*** Use this application at your own risk. It is possible that use of this program may violate your carrier's Terms of Use/Terms of Service. ***

This program enables wifi-tethering for "rooted" handsets.

Clients (your laptop for example) can connect via wifi and get access to the internet using the mobile connection (4G, 3G, 2G) of your phone.

Wifi-tethering creates a so called adhoc (peer-to-peer) network on most devices.
Infrastructure-mode is suppported for a large set of devices.

** PREREQUISITE **

1) Root
2) Netfilter-enabled kernel (most stock-kernel nowadays come with such a kernel).

** FEATURES **

-) Widget-support. One-click enabling/disabling from your home-screen.
-) Disable tethering after a configurable idle-time.
-) Access-control feature. Allow/deny clients to use your mobile-data connection.
-) Wifi-Encrytion. 128-bit WEP in general (adhoc). WPA/WPA2 on supported devices (infrastructure-mode).
-) Settings for wifi-ssid, wifi-channel, „lan“-network and more.
-) And more ...

** TROUBLESHOOTING ***

-) On HTC devices with stock rom it's required to enable "Routing fix" from app-settings.
-) If only certain websites can be opened you might have to enable "MSS Clamping" in app-settings.
-) If you notice reboots or if the wifi-interface is unusable after tethering UNCHECK the "Force wifi-driver reload"-option in app-setting.

On Metro Samsung SCH-R10, works only initially...Samsung SCH-R10 Metro PCS Works great initially! until you stop tethering, After that it wont re-enable tethering., it just sits there "Enabling" Even after I end the process it keeps happening. I have to fully reboot the phone to restore my "one-time" WiFi tethering functionality. Really annoying issue and I hope it gets fixed. Otherwise it's a great app, and the only WiFi tether app that actually works!

Gets it done.(Evo3D/Sprint)It gets me working on an adhoc network, but won't in infrastructure. Which is a pain because a lot of my devices can't connect to adhoc. (ps3, Smart-TV, ect..) Phone is my only internet..

Great with compatible devicesUsed this app religiously with my Galaxy Nexus and it worked like a charm. However, does not work with Note 2. Will absolutely go up to 5 stars and even donate to developer if made compatible with Note 2!
