I don't want to hijack your thread, but I was going to make a thread and I wondered if this was better suited to go with your post. Maybe you guys have encountered this and figured it out. Part of our problem is that no one really wants usb usally. They want wifi. But right now I'd be thrilled to have a good, stable usb tether for when I need it. The only way I've been able to keep it stable is by constant download, like setting something going in the background on Netflix, but that's not a real solution!
I have a few issues. This is USB tether and not WiFi.
I need to set up for occasional tethering and just planned on using USB tethering. I went to clockworkmod tethering and installed it on a Sprint variant LG G2(LS980). I am trying to get that working on two different computers. Computer 1 is an older laptop running Vista. Computer 2 is a new laptop running win8.
Computer 1 has the app installed and works. The issue is, if I stop downloading anything for just a few moments, it quits working. I then have to close out the app on the phone and then reopen it and it takes off just fine. Iíd like to know how to make that a stable connection.
Computer 2 is more of the issue. First, the Win8 driver signature enforcement setting was disabled. The app was installed on the computer and there was tethering for a little bit. Long enough to try a page or two and then point the computer to speedtest, which was 16mbps down, which is great for where we are in the country. After the test there was a gap in downloading any information. It quit tethering and would never work again. It was believed it might be due to the wrong driver. The first one was taken directly from the LG page a week or two ago, LGMobileDriver_S50xxxx, so the app was relaunched and attempted to use the driver found on triple double u clockworkmod dot com/tether/drivers and is LGMobileDriver_S498xxx and that didnít work.
In short, what do I do to get this to work? Iím at a bit of a loss. It should be easy.
