I am trying to use my htc one as a wifi repeater with windows8 because the toshiba laptop has really crappy wifi despite being brand new and almost $1000! I know there is the frouter app but you need root and I don't currently want to do that. I was thinking maybe there is a way using usb or even bluetooth. The HTC site says that I should be able to do this with htcsync and elsewhere it says I should also be able to do it via bluetooth. I tried both on windows 8 to no avail. Any hints and tips on this? Even the microsoft site seems to only give instructions for windows7. I tried the same procedure (pair bluetooth, connect to PAN etc.) which appeared to work but there was no internet. I downloaded htc sync and connected phone and that didn't work either (I think that would also only share the mobile data connection as I had to turn on wifi hotspot anyway for that to work). Any thoughts before I throw this stupid Toshiba out the window! Its the new radius flippy screen thing and it's all but perfect but for this massive horrible flaw.
