T-Mobile Note II -- After successfully doing method 1, I was finallyyy able to turn the hotspot on, using a widget(did NOT go directly into the settings to turn it on). I am also using VPN, to avoid the t-mobile upsell page. However, after my computer connects to the hotspot, it is unable to load up any webpages
((((((((((((( Just acts as if there is no connection at all... I tried connecting with the WiFi Tether app - can't find the right combination of settings for it to be visible to my computer (tried Auto, Generic and Galaxy Nexus GSM profiles; with and without routing fix on). This is so disappointing... I may just have to go back to my Nexus and put this beast of a phone on a shelf to collect dust, until a sure-proof method to get tethering work is out there...
