It says on, but none of my devices can detect it


"I think a ducks opinion of me is heavily influenced by whether I have bread or not."
I started a post in Troubleshooting about this....I can get TrevE's to work and I can download regular files but I can't download torrents and files of that nature....REALLY FREAKIN WEIRD!!! BUT - I can use FoxFi and USB tether but you have to install PDANET on your computer...when you download the app to your phone and connect via USB it will give you the option to download...

My question post in trouble shooting is labeled "How Do I Change WAP" settings...
I really believe this is the problem...
Tell me what you think and Try the USB with FoxFi..

I'm currently downloading and AOSP....ROM to see if it wifi tether will work on it...I'll post my results here...

Step 1. Download Wifi Tether TrevE Mod APK
Step 2. Open the Wifi Tether app, hit Menu button and hit “Settings”
Step 3. Press on “Change Device-Profile”.
Step 4. Choose “Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)”.
Step 5. Choose “Change Setup-Method”.
Step 6. Choose “Netd-Ndc (master)”.
Step 7. Choose “Send Netd Max Client Cmd”.
Step 8. You can set your wifi encryption and SSID here to whatever you’d like.
Step 9. Make sure either “WiFi-driver reload” or “WiFi-driver reload 2″ is checked on. If wifi tether fails for some reason you can change this to the one you didn’t use.
Step 10. Scroll down and make sure “MSS clamping” and “Routing fix” are both checked on.
Step 11. Turn on tethering by hitting the Wifi icon.
Step 12. You can check logs by hitting Menu button->Show Log. If you don’t see any errors you are good to go.
Step 13. Now, try connecting to your wifi tether using your computer or another wifi device. Once connected, it should show up under Access Control. (hit Menu then Access Control)
Step 14. Enjoy your wifi tether without paying carriers twice!

I hope one of these will work for you!
Thank you
