    couple of things to try:

    Under settings enable wifi encryption....then change the passphrase to what u want and then try logging in from the PC.

    Also when u start the tethering for the first time check allow when the pop up from superuser asks for permission.

    Good luck

    Probably not unless you plan on downloading movies and music etc while tethering.
