What wifi app do you use?

    Sup fellas, when I use my rooted phone as a wifi hotspot I get terrible download speeds, so much so that my browser can't load even the simplest of Web pages. I know it's not my coverage because I can look up the same pages on my phone and they load up in a flash.

    So anyways, what wifi hotspot app do you guys use and how well does it work for you?

    I am currently using barnacle wifi and wifi tether, neither with any luck.

    From the sound of things he does not want to spend the extra five bucks a month to make his phone a hotspot

    First off it's $10 & you don't have to pay to us it ou bypass it the same way you would using any other tethering app

    On my Optimus M, metro blocked by user agent. On the motion, I don't think it matters. Though, with the stock hot spot app, I noticed switching the user agent on my PC to android did help it load faster compared to default chrome. But I don't use that app; once you lose 4G signal, it turns off leaving you to reset everything. Alternatively, I use "WiFi Tether" app (the yellow icon one; the one linked in the quote). This one doesn't turn off if I lose signal and has better settings. I also use it to stream media to other devices.

    You can change your user agent via the ##626* hidden menu....

    Why do you change it on the motion

    Guys, just a quick heads-up that I've edited-out the reference to a wifi cracking app that was mentioned and quoted a couple of times.

    Thanks!

    I don't have the hot spot feature either, and I have no issues when tethering to my tablet. When I connect up my ps3 I can't download anything from the playstation store. I'm currently without a PC so I can't test that.

    FYI : it's not testing your speed that's the amount of data per second it's sending & receiving from a connected device.
    Do you have a wifi device connected to it?
