[Q] Issue with wireless Tether
I have been having issues with the wifi tether that are confusing me a bit. A little back ground:
After installing KK (stock) via zip, I had no issues with Tether. A few weeks after the upgrade, I tried the LTE fix for the 1st time, and there was much happiness.. everything seemed good (I'm on T-Mobile btw, it worked awesome). Sometime after the 4.4.2 OTA installed, I tried to use the tether, and it seemed normal, but nothing I connected to it could actually access a webpage. On my PC, I could connect to the hotspot and Ping a website, but it would not load it (used www.cnn.com
to test, easy to type). I even tried using the IP address generated by the ping test, but no luck. It is obviously able to resolve an address in DNS.
I decided to start playing with some ROMS, and found a couple I liked, but still ran into the issue with tethering, but now was happening without 4G too... until I tried a PA ROM. this ROM has the tether working even with the 4G enabled, so I know it's not a hardware issue with my phone, bg relief. The issue I have is there was one ROM I was really hoping to stick with, a CM11 Nexus 5 Experience ROM. BUt ebven tho I keep trying after updates, it still wont work I have tried all 4 versions they have this past weekend and can get data to other devices even on the non-4G ROMS. There has to be something I'm missing here.
Anyone else run into this and found whats causing it?
