I have also tried wiping the cache in recovery between wireless tether installs with no luck. The connection on the phone itself when I'm on 4g is regularly between 4-8 Mb/s down and almost always exactly 1.0 Mb up. I am new to android and this was probably the biggest reason for me to get this phone. While I'm not expecting 4 Mb on a wirelessly tethered connection, I would think it should be much faster than 0.1! I don't know what info from my phone is needed to help, so I apologize if this is information overload:
Baseband Version: 2.15.00.11.19
Kernel Version: 126.96.36.199-gee557fd htc-kernel@and18-2 #15
Software number: 3.70.651.1
PRI Version: 1.90_003
Wireless Tether: version 2.0.6 - I have tried other versions mentioned in other threads (pre9, pre11, etc.) that were supposed to work, but no luck.
Any assistance would be very, very much appreciated!
Give this a try also check out [Guide] Internet Tethering w/ Evo - 4G/3G, Wireless/Wired
. It's a great guide and will answer any questions you have about tethering.
*Wireless Tethering at 4G Speeds
I am including this section because generally people are unable to wireless tether at anything over 3G speeds by simply following the steps above. The following "fix" has not been confirmed to work for everybody, however, it is low risk and has worked for some (including myself).
Steps to possible "fix" using Root Explorer (my preferred method):
1) Following instructions above for how to get wireless tethering to work for 3G.
2) Open Root Explorer
3) Select "data"
4) Select "data" again
5) Select "android.tether"
6) Select "bin"
7) Long press the file "fixroute.sh" and either move or delete it. (if you prefer you can move it to the sd card or something)
