Free Wi-fi tethering hotspot


Tuesday 03rd of July 2012 / androidforums.com
Hey everyone I'm BRAND new to the site. I picked up my S3 yesterday and was stoked to go home and set it up. I was a little shocked to find out that there is no mention of anyone setting up their free wifi tethering hotspot (after root) on the internet ANYWHERE. I rooted my Galaxy Note for the first time yesterday before I got the S3 and I rooted the S3 last night. I know for the Note, you had to use T.B. to uninstall 'TetheringManager' and then enable the tethering through the normal options. I did that with no problems and my hotspot is fine. The only thing I see on the S3 is 'TetheringProvision', but the icon that comes with it is a Google icon. I don't want to delete anything that belongs to TouchWiz/Google, but I want to get rid of AT&T's crappy tethering tracker. Does anyone have ideas/opinions on the matter?

Why upgrade to JB if tethering/hotspot will be killed?


Wednesday 27th of March 2013 / androidforums.com
After reviewing many of the posts and seeing that JB kills Foxfi and tethering app why up grade?I travel a lot and bought the RAZR for the ability to use it as a hotspot for our laptops and tablets, which has worked flawlessly. After much research I have not found an app that will allow a JB loaded phone to work as a hotspot any longer. Is there a reason to upgrade if those features are dead?Thanks for any feedback, I know a few others have the same question.

Anyone get WiFi Tethering/Hotspot to with ICS leak 232 to work?


Wednesday 15th of August 2012 / droidforums.net
Has anyone gotten WiFi tethering to work properly with ICS leak .232?I do not have tethering provisioned on my account, and when I try to activate Verizon's Mobile Hotspot, it errors telling me to call customer service.I tried the FoxFi app, and it starts up the hotspot intermittently, and it allows my laptop to connect, but it does not pass Internet connectivity.I tried WiFi Tether, and it just doesn't work. (Anyone know the proper Device-Profile to use?)WiFi Tether worked on .902 and .905 flawlessly, but since going to .232 it doesn't work.Suggestions?

Tethering/Hotspot for EVO


Thursday 24th of June 2010 / androidforums.com
Question, I know Sprint's hotspot feature is to use the EVO "Wirelessly" with up to 8 diff. devices and that is what the $30 charge is for if you want to use that feature....... It's my understanding that "Tethering" is a different thing where u directly connect your EVO to a laptop and use the "Internet Sharing" mode that way with only that device. I don't pay the extra $30 so i dont have hotspot for my EVO but I am able to Tether my phone to my laptop. Ive read that tethering is not allowed on the sprint network without purchasing the Hotspot feature and i can have my contract terminated if i continue to use tethering with my EVO. IS THAT TRUE?????? Is the tethering feature with the EVO at this point, just a feature that has not been disabled or patched yet or is it infact supported by sprint without needing to buy the Sprint Hotspot feature?????? And if it is freely available is there a cap to how much data i can use while tethering??????..... cause you know, i do pay the damn """ $10 premium charge""" for each EVO on my

Froyo built in wireless tethering hotspot


Monday 28th of June 2010 / droidforums.net
Hi all, I've tried a lot of AOSP roms in the last week, and i've resigned to the fact that none of them will be coming with the built in wireless tethering (hotspot option in the 'tethering' part of the settings). I can only conclude that the hotspot code does not come with google's release of FRF83, but I would assume that the wifi driver itself can still support using the card as an access point natively. If the source isn't available for the hotspot tethering, maybe an app can be written that can make the Droid an AP? maybe wifi tether can be updated? Anybody got insight on this topic?

Verizon wifi hotspot after JB update


Saturday 22nd of December 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Anyone else who used to use FoxFi for wifi tethering/hotspot notice that now, when you try to start FoxFi up (after you tell it to start the hotspot) the Verizon wifi hotspot app "takes over" and runs the hotspot for you? At first I didn't quite get what I was looking at, but it definitely "stole" the settings i put into FoxFi (SSID and wep key), started the hotspot on its own, and ran like a charm. I am on an unlimited plan so I thought that hotspot via the verizon app would still cost $20/mo but it appears that it is now free for all... Anyone else notice this? I am not rooted (but i do have an unlocked bootloader and custom recovery). I did this yesterday and checked my verizon account today and there are no changes to it so I don't think they did something sneaky like automatically add the hotspot fee, but who knows.

tethering hotspot: monitor/filter traffic consumption (stop background download)


Wednesday 25th of September 2013 / androidforums.com
I hope it's the right section to post this issue.If not, please, excuse me and show the right topic (if already present).I connect my windows XP pc to internet via Android smartphone hotspot.Doing this, some times there are misterious process downloading megabyte without inform me.Someone suggested me to turn off "windows update" and so on, but I'm not sure to identify all the processes involved in background downloads.And also reaching this goal, I should repeat it for each PC I want to connect via hotspot.In addition, I have tried a firewall (e.g. "comodo firewall") into the pc: I can't manage to split good traffing from bad traffic. And also managing it, I should install and set up it for each PC I want to connect via Android Hotspot. So, I wonder if I can monitor and filter traffic on Android Phone ("server side").If I'm not wrong, App like "3g watchdog", "onavo counter",.... can inform me only about the total amount downloaded via tethering.If I detect any odd download reading their report, I can only close the connection.

Tethering hotspot no longer works...frustration on Samsung Galaxy S3


Sunday 24th of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have been using FoxFi for tethering a hotspot and now since the update it will no longer connect. It keeps telling me to dial 611 to connect to AT&T hotspot. I have unlimited data and do not want to pay for MORE data. Unlimited should be unlimited, anyway.....what can I do? I have tried uninstalling FoxFi, did not help, installed Fast Wifi Tethering, still did not work, installed TetherSittin....again...nothing......I am new to Samsung S3, I have always used an IPhone. Would rooting help? What is rooting? What's the reasons to root? Is it hard? It needs to be very self explanatory. After rooting are there other aps that I need t download? Thanks for the help

Galaxy S3 with Android 4.3 and tethering/hotspot?


Tuesday 11th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I just upgraded to this new Galaxy S3 and I was curious to see if I could remain unrooted/stock and get hotspot/tethering capability to work. My carrier is Virgin Mobile (Sprint). Since the phone is new, I like to remain unrooted for a bit in the event I have issues. It came directly from Virgin Mobile with 4.3 installed. The app of choice seems to be FoxFi. I installed FoxFi for Spring/AT&T figuring this was the correct choice - Establishing a wireless hotspot failed. I get an error message "Hotspot not supported". I've searched around and there seems to be a mixed bag of successes versus failures as shown in this thread: Does tethering with unlimited data still work on 4.3? I DID get wired tethering to work! So that is the good news. Frankly, if that is all I can get to work then I'll be content but would like to understand why/how to get the wireless hotspot feature working.....or if it is not worth my time at this point. There seems to be mixed results even when rooted so I'm not eager to start hacking my brand new phone. The posts in the thread above are from la
