    I have found quite a few posts regarding Wi-Fi Sharing Manager and how it seems to be draining the battery, but nothing regarding my issue:
    when I turn on tethering my phone gets disconnected from the network.

    This means that I cannot tether another machine and share the internet connection, maybe I'm paranoid, but this never used to happen, I used to be able to share my network very easily indeed, and I was really pleased that I had 'got around' the rip-off tarrifs that you apparently require in order to do this.

    I discovered yesterday that if I turn off Wi-Fi sharing Manager (Settings > Applications > Manager Applications), my connection doesn't drop out anymore!

    So where did Wi-Fi sharing Manager come from, it's v1.0, is it new, who provides it, did I add it to my phone (I can't remember doing so)?
