Default Tethering

Does the Android Wifi Tether App for root users work for Sprint Moto X? I have unlimited data. I want to tether IPad Air.

I was able to make tethering work on my rooted Sprint Moto X, but had to follow the following steps:

1. Change "Device-Profile" to "Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)"
2. Enable "WiFi-driver reload"
3. Enable "Keep Alive - Connection Checking"
4. Enable "Routing Fix"

On your iPad, look for the access point named "wlan0"

I was unable to get wireless encryption working. I also was unable to change the SSID. No matter what SSID I enter, the access point always broadcasts as "wlan0".

Tethering has been extremely unstable for me. Tethering stops if the screen turns off, and it is extremely slow compared to what my data speeds are when not tethering. Running a speed test from my phone without tethering I get 20Mbps down. I get 0.5Mbps running a speed test from my laptop while tethered.

Thanks. Does anyone know why the download speed is slow when tethered to an iPad?

For Verizon, I use the wifi_tether_v3_4-experimental1.apk and set...

change device profile to galaxy nexus (cdma/lte)
check box: wifi-driver reload
check box: enabled routing fix

and I can change the SSID and use WPA encryption. Its been stable. to.
