I just got this ZTE warp 4g N9510. I just finished rooting the phone. I am having a problem with the protocols for the wifi tether prog http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/ . I can't get my laptop to see the ZTE wifi hotspot even when wifi encryption is completlly turned off and the phone is an open hotspot. My old phone a Kyocera Hydro had no problem running the wifi tether prog.
I have a Nexus 1 and am wondering if it is possible to tether by USB to the Nexus 7... I dont really like using the wifi hotspot as for some reason whenever I put security on it I can never connect to it and bluetooth just plain doesnt work.
So just wondering if any of you have tried it with other phones or if its just not possible.
I spent the entire day rooting my phone and trying to set up WiFi hotspot/tethering (which was the primary motivation for rooting my phone). I've tried a variety of ROM's and a couple different builds of the WiFi Tether for Root Users to no avail.
Boost Mobile ZTE Warp 4G model #N9510 ANDROID Version 4.1.2 rooted stock. Tether version 3.3-pre2. After starting tether it runs for maybe a minuet then a message pops up at the bottom of the screen that says: What the hell. Your phone takes back control over the Wi-Fi interface. Wireless tether immediate shutdown. Tether shuts down and my Wi-Fi on my phone quits working too.
There are two ways to turn your Android phone into a mobile wireless hotspot: you can either buy a device running Android 2.2 Froyo, or you can root your current Android phone and install the Wireless Tether application.
I'm new to the forum, and I've tried to get this working on my own, but I'm stumped and am hoping someone out there can help me out.
I just bought a shiny new Nexus 7 tablet and would like to tether it to my Galaxy S III phone. I'm currently on a pay as you go plan on my phone where I have an "internet browsing" plan (via SpeakOut).
