    Hey guys

    I have a rooted 2.1, it's been working perfectly since I rooted and updated and all. I love how fast and responsive everything is now. BUT one of the main reasons I rooted was so that I could take advantage of the wifi tethering. It works sometimes...sometimes great. BUT if I try to go to facebook...it'll work well sometimes, then others it won't even load the page...then eventually just kills my connection. gmail seems to have the same reaction...works sometimes, other times, nothing. i dont seem to have much of a problem surfing other sites...HOWEVER if i try to download anything over like 4MB big...my connection just gets killed all together, and nothing works. a friend of mine sent me his bands new demos...the zip file is like 35MB...it only gets a little ways before just dropping down to 0.0kbs and then it just sits there, not loading crap. I can re start the connection, and it will start downloading again, but after about 30 or 40 seconds...the connection gets killed again. Same goes for a torrent...if I try to download a torrent, it'll work and get pretty fast, up to 190kbs...but after just under a minute, connection killed. why is this? does verizon kill data connections that come in to fast or something? i have a friend who tethers with at&t with his iphone, he got the demos downloaded in like 12 min on his iphone tethering app. do i need to do some tweaking to my phone so I can download? im not trying to go crazy, but I'd like to atleast be able to get large attachments and such.

    You would probably find a better answer in the Root section, and not here. Most people here are on the leak 2.1, and have not rooted and have no clue what you're talking about.
