    Post Tether problems

    I'm running SS 4.9 (love it) and am having problems maintaining a connection with w/ wifi tether and wired tether. I can start a connection, and run for a short period of time, however if I wait too long (about 2-3 min) my connection no longer responds. I am then forced to restart wifi or wired tether. Any ideas why???
    I have tried multiple Chevy kernals and a P3 kernal with no change. I am currently using my favorite- ULV 1.0Ghz out of Chevy's new batch. I redownloaded wifi tether to no avail. Only otherthing I can think of is changing ROMs and I really like Chevy's. I used to have no problem w/ BB 0.4 and wifi tether.
    Sorry for long post - just wanted to explain fully

    Same here. I also have this problem with the WiFi. It just stops after a random amount of time. It's been like this for a while now. Hopefully they'll fix it someday.

    If you downloaded the tether app from the market its an older version go to menu and about and go the their website to download current version. I had the same problem not anymore. Here a quick link

    Did you download new apk file? Most recent tether version is 2.0.5.pre 15, down load that apk and should fix ur issue

    Same problem here, haven't been able to find a way around yet. I've tried bluetooth and that didn't help either. Sprint's MiFi is very consistent though; got to use one for 2 days.

    It is because verizon only allows 1 data connection at once. Your other apps in the background update randomly and it drops the wireless connection. I haven't found a fix. I have wiped and installed not a damn thing, turned off the sync option, installed wireless tether and it still happens. I am curious of sprint customers have this problem. If you don't believe me turn on wireless sync and don't even turn your PC on. I bet you it will randomly go to 1x and even analog.

    I just put it on airplane mode for a bit then turn it off and it usually fixes.

    I think I found a solution to this.

    There is another app called Barnacle WiFi Tether.

    So far it has not dropped my connection.
