    I use a desktop at home (windows vista) and would like to be able to be able to pick up my bionics 3g/4g signal to use the internet during the times when my usual service is down, etc. Can I just buy any usb wireless adapter or do I need a special one to connect to the bionic?

    Any USB adapter should work and you are probably going to need to get FoxFi from Google Play so that you can use your phone as a Mobile Hot Spot.

    Or, if you'd rather use the built in mobile hotspot feature, the entitlement check edit using sqlite still works for me. Let me know if you're interested and I'll walk you though how to do it. Root is required however.

    I use the same IP. It usually takes a second to connect, but I've never had to reset my network adapter.
