Default Nexus 5 Tethering Doesn't work at all on MetroPCS

Wireless Hotspot (Wireless Tethering) doesn't seem to even work at all from my device on MetroPCS (which uses the same towers as T-mobile). When connected to a Windows Device or another Android device, connectivity does not seem to be present. On the Windows machines, the Wireless Icon displays "Limited Connectivity" I have tried numerous ways to get it to work. Anyone else experiencing similar issues with this?

That's besides the point, it has nothing to do with user agent, It just won't connect to the wireless tethered network. I get "limited" connectivity. Meaning it won't even ever go to the T-mobile site that gives you the warning. Tethering to Android devices and iOS devices don't work as well. Which tells me that the issue is with the default gateway not providing internet (something with the phone).

What settings are you using? What device(s) are you tethering to?
