I used to tether all the time on my Blackberry, but have not been able to get any tethering program to work with the Galaxy S3. I have tried multiple apps, but always get this error message: "Unable to connect to data network, turning off Hotspot. Your plan may not have the Hotspot service, please contact your phone company." I also get another error called "Error 67", but I can't do a screen capture quick enough to get the details. Has anyone resolved this issue? I have not tried tethering using USB, and also have not tried any paid apps because I'm not sure any of them will work. Thanks. By the way, the 4G LTE in the Chicago area is amazing. There have been multiple times when I have had to turn off the Wi-Fi on my phone in Starbucks or Panera because it was so slow. I turn Wi-Fi off and just use 4G and the speed picks up significantly.
When I previously used the rooted Wireless Tether app on the EVO 4G, I enabled WPA2 encryption right away. However, when I set up the current rooted app (now called Wi-Fi Tether) on the EVO LTE a few weeks back, I needed to make just a quick and dirty connection to my tablet, thus left encryption off for the moment. Well, today, I was in a room full of high school students and needed to do a little bit of light tethering, so I again launched Wi-Fi Tether on the EVO LTE. After a few minutes, I noticed that, in addition to my MacBook Air, two other clients had connected. A couple of the high school students' little iPhones had latched on like leeches to my unencrypted connection. Needless to say, I kicked their MAC addresses to the curb and decided that it was long past time to set up my WPA2 encryption as I had always done previously. Advice: watch out for those wireless tether parasites. AJ
