    Same here. I'm also getting this problem from couple of days. I have tried both wireless tether, google wifi tether and even the wired tether app.. Same with all no website except for Facebook or YouTube

    I'm actually having the same problem. Tried upgrading to beta 12 of wifi tether and nothing has changed. It's strange because I can connect to xfire, play online games (if I wanted), and go on YouTube. But no other site will work that I've tried.

    Maybe it has to do with the new plan tiers. What plan are you on:thinking:
    Perhaps its their way of throttling you if you have been tethering a lot.

    I had the same problem. Wireless tether for root keeps starting with errors, and won't connect.

    I use WiFi tether V3.1 and I have my LG Esteem in the LG optimus s profile in the WiFi tether app settings its on auto as default and I use it for all my toys(devices) and yes sometimes I get errors but a quick reboot takes care of that I have the 4g premium plan

    What about messing with the permissions in the system files though? Has anyone tried this?

    Im having the same issue, Im using a Samsung Galaxy Attain but its just started happening 2 days ago... Im using a user agent switcher as a temp fix but id still love full access like i used to have... my phone is rooted and i have the issue with the 4g hotspot feature thats built in, wireless tether by muller, foxfi and pda net all give me the same exact results.

    this is what i'm using under chrome.
    just right click on the chrome shortcut under target at the end insert this and you should be ok, i switched to the $70 plan so i'm not sure if it is a way that metro is throttling.
