    I was wondering if anyone else with this phone was having trouble with the WIFI tethering. It has worked great for months now but all of the sudden my computer will only get limited connectivity. The keep alive on the tether app indicates an internet connection, but the laptop is unable to get past local network. Anyone else experiencing this?

      Let me know. I appreciate help.
    Just out of curiosity:

    Does your phone still get internet? Reason I ask is that you may have been throttled or totally cutoff by your carrier for tethering.

    My Wi-Fi there stopped 2 weeks ago.  I couldn't get any tether apps to work so I started using easy tether. There is a Wi-Fi Tether update out however I haven't tried it yet. I haven't been on a market & no longer use Google Play.

    Yeah..Had the same issue.

    Switched to AR-Z990 ROM, now have tethering back.

    Was using WiFi for root users, but it wouldn't "turn on" the WiFi

    FoxFi now works, as do a few others. Still testing for the ZTE Z990s, see what works best...

    Sorry for the delay. I don't have a lot of free time anymore. I tried installing Proxoid and had a nightmare with it on my WIN8 mini laptop. I gave up, long story short. I am trying the easytether now. Maybe it will work :/

    I had to install an older version of WiFi for Root Users, . On the playstore page >Website>Downloads, look for 3.2beta1

    That's the only one that works for me

    I've never had much success tethering with this phone.  The only kind of tethering that I have tried is WiFi /creating a Hotspot so that either my tablet could pickup the network my phone is putting out or the same for a laptop. Using WiFi Tether for Root did work for me for awhile for both my tablet and laptop. They easily found and connected to my phone via WiFi Tether for Root. But now that's just not happening. I can get my tablet and laptop to find the network that my phone is putting out with WiFi Tether for Root but can never get it to connect anymore. I thought maybe it was my settings in WiFi Tether for Root but I've tried every possible connection but if anyone has a.ny ideas i'd be happy
    to hear them. my connection works just fine and the few times that I did tether were only for a few minutes and had a set cap of no more than 100mb of use.Foxfi never worked for me and I had really hoped it would since it has the Hide Tethering Usage feature from your carrier.
    If FoxFi now works for this phone please let me know. also I'm going to look for this tethering update that was mentioned in an earlier post here but if someone can elaborate on it that'd be nice.
