Also, not every webpage works, for example, when I try going to "facebook.com" it takes me to:
"Sorry, we couldn't find www.facebook.comhttp"
Right now t-mo is down so I'm using a wifi connection (phone) with the wifi disabled on my laptop.
I think the overhead of creating connections is very high. I also got good throughput on my home wifi but also noticed the latency. I've got a few ideas on how to improve it, but it's most likely going to involve either software on the PC that collects the different requests and forwards them through a single connection to the android, or to simply provide a conduit for some kind of vpn software.
The latter is probably easier, but it'll require that you have some server to connect to on the other end
