    If your rooted, try using AOKP for a ROM. It has the work around built in. So do some others.

    OK looks like the newest gummy has it built in but how do you turn it on? Just in the regular settings?

    This is what I use. foxfi also works well and is in the market for non rooted.

    Hope you have unlimited data as halfway through my billing cycle i am standing a just over 6 gigs, but I stream
    netflix wireless, and each movie consumes a just over a gig.

    Okay, In AOKP, got to Settings, Rom Control, Toggles, Enabled Toggles, (Now choose the one's you want to use) click on close. Back up to your home screen and pull down notifications and you should see the toggles. Turn it on from there, but you'll need to set it up under Settings, More, Tethering & Portable Hot Spot. Or You can install this from Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/...yLDUwMSwiY29tLmFjaG15ci5hbmRyb2lkLmZyb3lvIl0. It worked on my D1 and on my Nexus when it was stock.

    Good Luck

    Okay, if you Set up your network settings and password, you have to configure your computer to log in to that. It's not Liquid, It's ICS, and as long as you don't tic the Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot check box, they dont know your there... I have my Viewsonic G-Tab and my 6 year old Dell laptop working off the 4g this way... and I still haven't hit 2 gig of usage in a month.
