    Tethering for Root Users Used to Work....

    ...before the official rollout I could use my Droid as a hotspot w/o fail. I've tried it both ways, with the official update (rooted), then tried it switching back to BB & trying the Tether.

    The problem the app is having, someone can connect on their end & I can authenticate them on my end with no problems...on the laptop it says they are connected but when they try to logon to the internet says page cannot be displayed. Keep in mind this has worked plenty of times before, yet 3 different laptops all connect, yet fail to actually logon to the internet.

    Any thoughts?

    I am running Sapphire 1.0 and am having no problems what so ever with wireless tether.

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?
