my main thought is that when i wifi to my xbox(built in wifi) it says that my connection is poor because my nat is low. i thought that if i usb tether through my laptop then bridge the connection to my xbox my speed should pick up because i wont be using ad hoc connection. when i watch netflixs at home on my laptop using the wifi from my phone it works good. when i try to watch it through the xbox it's really slow. i would relate that to the nat. but i think using my laptop as a hub kinda would straighten that out. i dont know i need input
I agree with the poster above that if you use wi-fi you better be looking for an outlet! While my X is tethered on USB it is also charging the battery, albeit slowly. The USB port is limited to 0.5 amps (500 milliamps) by design and tops out at 3.3 volts. In other words, low power. If low power, then low speed or throughput. So you're not going to see fiber-optic speeds on a USB line-out to a tethered phone. PDANet works for my purposes. There's also another app you could try from a company called Tether, the one for Blackberry. It's currently no cost because it is in beta.
