So, my Droid X has been rooted for a little over a month now, and no problem using wifi tether, etc...until recently. For the past week or so, my tether connection has been terrible, whether wifi or USB. I could connect, get to google, etc, no problem, but it would VERY quickly seem to crap out/timeout/disconnect.
This evening, I decided to see if I could dig deeper/get to the bottom of things. Fired up easytether (to rule out wireless issues), got wireshark running, and found some very interesting results:
Open browser, go to google: No problem
Search query on google: No problem, very fast.
Click on link from results page: Browser stuck at "waiting for www.domain.com...."
What's wireshark have to say? DNS query for the site went fine, but when I try to establish a connection to the site's IP, ICMP comes back with:
Destination unreachable (administratively prohibited)
This is the same case for multiple sites that I know are running fine. Am I crazy or is this indicative of Verizon blocking me?
edit: I realize that Verizon does 'throttle' users after 5 GB, bit I just checked and I'm only at 3.3 GB...
