I'm trying to create a Hotspot (not ad-hoc) with my rooted Commando so I can connect it to my N7 and can't get it to work. Any suggested apps/tricks?

So I found an app that will allow you to create a WiFi Hotspot in infrastructure mode and not ad-hoc. The phone itself needs to be rooted in order to bypass your carrier's network authentication and set itself up as a WiFi Hotspot setting, but any devices you are trying to connect to the Hotspot will not have to be rooted. The name is WiFi Tether Router and is in the play store.
Ok, so I finally got my phone rooted, downloaded my Wireless Tether app and got it to work. Trying to stream football on my laptop - no problem. But when I go to my T-Mobile app it shows that I'm still using up the 500MB of HotSpot data I'm allotted. Is that accurate? I rooted in part so I could use a wireless HotSpot and not be limited or charged. Is there any way around this??
As many of you know, most of our android(not only android) devices can't connect to ad hoc hotspots. There's a solution for win7/8 users to set up infrastructure hotspot on their laptop using software like connectify and so on. Ubuntu also allows to create wifi hotspot to share internet, but it will be ad hoc one.
So here's the guide how to set up infrastructure hotspot on ubuntu 12.04/12.10.
I'm using 12.10 on a Samsung Q45 laptop and cannot connect to one specific wifi hotspot where I work. This is the only hotspot that I cannot connect to. Every other hotspot I can connect to without any problem. If I use my Win7 Pro (64bit) laptop with my work hotspot then it connects immediately. Nobody else (they all use windows) has any problems connecting to the work hotspot.
Hi everyone! Complete noob to flashing phones here. I'm trying to use a 3rd party app to turn my S3 into a free mobile hotspot but ran into some problems. I started by using towelroot & SuperSU to root the phone.
