[Q] Interesting Tethering Problem
Maybe it won't be interesting to some of you
I am using a Nexus 4 running 4.4 stock, not rooted and tried to tether my Asus TF700 tablet. I am on T-mobile with the "unlimited" everything 70 dollar plan.
This is my first time tethering in many months
I setup my portable hotspot and my Asus connects to it fine. Apps such as Gmail and Google Maps have access to data albeit seemingly slower than on my phone but regardless it works.
the issue is when i try to browse the web (i use chrome), none of the webpages load and it does not direct me to a T-mobile page trying to sell me tethering plan.
the main reason I am doing this is for Netflix and I get the error "Netflix service is unable to be reached at this time..." but it works on my phone.
My question is...why do some apps have access to the tethering data but not my broweser and netflix? And is there a fix for this?
thank you for any help given to me
