Heres my solution I did download https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...errouter&hl=en its called wifi tether router by Fabio Grasso costs $2 well worth it!! heres the settings for the Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 you need to be rooted and have ur wifi turned on before you Enable Wifi Router.

Config Settings for Sprint Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-T217S :
Interface wlan0
Method 3 - HostApd
Encryption wpa2-psk or open (your choice)
Channel 1
Drivers nl80211
ApType master
"HostApd Patch" <- UNCHECKED

hope this helps everyone since it took me a few tries with settings and a few apps to figure which one worked.

It sounds like the exploit went through the wifi not really shocking with KNOX. THE ONLY OTHER 4 letter word that should get people slapped. Lol
