      I LOVE TO ARGUE
    Hi valrose you can tether your phones internet to a computer though it will be very slow. You need to download the lg mobile update tool from lg's website.
    You will use this tool to get the drivers for your phone. Next you need to install the drivers for your device. Your phone will be under tracfone. So using the lg mobile update tool grab the drivers for the lg l55c. Once you install those you can flash a custom recovery onto your device. The how-to on that is in the optimus q section of our site. Get that on and then please install arearomq. In arearomq I've added the option to wirelessly tether to a device. Be warned though that using this feature is a violation of your terms of service with straight-talk/net10 and if used excessively could result in a disconnection of your wireless service.

    so if i am going to install arearomq 1.5....the instructions r confusing because i dont know what words are.  so really the first step is to have "terminal emulator" app? is there any other app i need? clockworkmod is the first step to rooting your phone, but the instructions r at the end? step 6 & 7...where do i mount  my usb storage to? restore sd card data...is that an option. just push enter? step 8 is just push enter two times right? flash your rom, install .zip sd card...where is this at? just press enter? am i still in recovery mode?

    do i need my computer for any of this? should my phone be plugged into the computer?"flash a custom recovery" how do u flash? just like flash your rom? is this done thru the computer or on the phone?

    thank u very much. please believe i have read hours into this. and appreciate ur knowledge greatly!

    Yes you need your computer to do this. All the files you need are marked in bold and say download beside them. They are at the bottom also. Download everything you need then go too the top and follow the steps. By the way do you have cwm installed already?

    You can tether your phone using ez tether. The pro edition allows the use of html and everything. And you can use ez tether witthout root.

    Foxfi works ok, but the free version will default to the demo version after a week, and you will not be able to do https:// connections unless you buy the program. This means any secure connection will not work. No facebook, no online banking, nothing that requires the secure connection. True the pro version is cheap, but it's something to keep in mind. I do have the pro version myself, and it has come in handy many times, and is a fairly easy program to use.
