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.
Right now it doesn't appear to support https which i think does cause issues for facebook.
How did you measure the latency? typical ping tools won't work because they wont run the ICMP packets through the proxy. It'd be nice if we had lower level network access to the device because they we might be able to build a NAT implementation, as it stands the best it can do is relay traffic.
I do concur that the latency is awful. I need to do more digging and find out where that bottleneck is. I *think* it's a limitation of the android debug bridge but we can likely work around it somehow!
