I've tried tethering and it's the same thing for me, don't know why it's so slow on a computer but maybe it's because a computer needs more things to load then a phone. That's why I only use it when I really have to which is generally never the case

Did you guys edit the build.prop from

ro.tether.denied = true
To
ro.tether.denied = false

If yes, I found using a user-agent switcher set to Android speeds things up

It works for the most part and user agent switcher is a chrome extension found here

http://spoofer-extension.appspot.com/

Once the extension is installed set it to Android Xoom or whatever is in the Android category and it should speed things up a bit

Happy How to make the chage to build.prop for tethering

This is a take on Pandahacker post earlier. "Did you guys edit the build.prop from
ro.tether.denied = true
To
ro.tether.denied = false"

I take no credit for this but found the info at XDA-Developers. here is the post info: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1948558



If you make that modification you can tether. HOW YOU ASK?
First you need to be rooted.


[GUIDE] How to edit build.prop on any Android device! Have you ever wanted to use an app from the Google Play store or a game...but it wasn't "supported" on your device?..Well DroidModder is here to the rescue to tell you not to worry at all and that you can use those apps in just seconds by editing one file in your devices system. This file is called build.prop

We will talk more about what this file holds and where its all displayed within your OS. Before we go any further, be aware that you must be rooted, which I assume, all of us are.

Now to access this file, you will need a File Manager, you can use the stock manager but I recommend using ES File Explorer. It is free on the Play Store (EDIT Removed LINK from original post cut and Paste)

Once downloaded and installed, Open the application and hit Menu, then tap "Settings", this will bring you to the apps Settings Menu. Once in the Settings Menu, scroll all the way down to Root Settings. In Root Settings, "check" Root Explorer and Mount File System

Once that is done, go back to the main part of the app that shows all the folders. On that page in the TOP RIGHT you should see a little window like icon, tap that and a set of icons should appear..on the left, there will be an icon that has a star and says Favorites...hit that please. When you hit favorites, it will display the directories on your device, such as Internal Storage, SD CARD, etc. Please tap the icon that shows your device. It can also be distinguished by a "/". By tapping that we have gone into our Devices Internal Storage. The next step is to navigate the system file...it should be towards the bottom. Now enter the system file and scroll to the bottom..at the bottom there will be your build.prop. Be aware that there is also a file named build.prop.bak, we are not using that file so just leave it alone..and enter the regular build.prop. Open the build.prop, the device will prompt you to ask what editor you would like to use to view/edit the build.prop...just use the ES Note Editor.

Once in build.prop you can edit the following things:

-edit Android Version by locating ro.build.version.release= and changing the current Build Version.
- Edit your Model # by locating ro.product.model= and changing your model #
- change your product brand by locating ro.product.brand=

Please Note that if you change the product brand, the name MUST be in ALL LOWERCASE LETTERS!!!

Once you are done playing around, press menu, and then Save...now just exit the app and reboot your phone.
Once your device reboots, go to Settings> About Phone/Device and see the changes! ;D


Scroll around for the ro.tether.denied = true change the true to false. Reboot, then go to Wireless & Network settings, You'll see the setting for Tethering & Portable hotspot. ALL is there.

Life is good. I'm new and can't paste links.
