    Okay so this program used to run great for me and I don't know
    what happened. Recently, I can't enable wifi encryption or my
    computer won't connect for some reason and the passowrd is correct
    and everything so I have to turn off encryption to connect.
    Now the newest problem is sometimes, more often than not, i'll
    be browsing on the computer and all the sudden web pages will
    stop loading but the computer and my phone both still show
    tethering on and connected. What is weird about this is, I can
    still go to facebook on my computer, that is the only website
    it will load when it's acting up like this and I have no idea why.
    So to get it working again, I go into settings on wifi tether
    and change the channel to any other channel than what it's
    currently on and it resets wifi tether and then I reset my wifi
    on my computer and re-connect to the wifi tether connection and
    then all web pages will load again until it acts up again
    which can range anywhere from 10 minutes until it does it
    again till sometimes it will work great for a couple hours
    before it acts up and I have to reset everything to load web
    pages, except like I said, facebook for some reason. So if
    anybody can help me out as to why my computer will no longer
    connect with encryption enabled and why out of the blue, it
    just stops loading web pages unless I reset. Thanks so much
    for any help!

    Hopefully you didn't use special characters. I found that running the wifi tether app from android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting Doesn't like special characters and will not let you connect. Other then that I'd just turn it off and on or just power cycle the device so that it can start fresh. I used the ICS/JB profile too.

    Also try running a client profile for your browser making the connection believe it's from the android device.
