So, when tethering is blocked the clients do not even connect to the hotspot?
I imagined they would connect to the hotspot and then not be able to connect to the internet, like connecting to a wireless router with no connection.
Will this fix allow me to tether without att knowing I am tethering? I dont want to lose my unlimited data plan but dont think it is worth paying $35 per 3GB for my tablet..
My phone is HTC One Dev Edition rooted I just dont want them to know that I am tethering although I probably will not do it much.
Yes this should work. Anyway, if I'm not wrong, the HTC One is running Android 4.1.2, so you can also use last version of "Wifi Tether for Root users" from the Play Store: launch tethering with this app and not from the built-in feature, this will allow you tether without additional costs ...
Tethering is not working.
DEVICE INFO: New S3 Vz SCH-i535 - rooted on stock ROM
ACTIONS: Running iptables script at boot. Verified with unlocker from gplay. I believe mine is a separate issue from tagged traffic.
ISSUE1: not advertising SSID when tethering
SYMPTOM: Unsuccessful when enabling Mobile Hotspot or USB/BT tethering because it checks for a subscription before enabling
UNRELATED ISSUE2: cannot connect to PC during normal operation [only in CWM Recovery and using Kies/connects to "CDROM" not SD filesystem]
I think the native 4.1.2 UI on 3.0.31kernel is different than the upgraded versions. If anyone has any info or guidance in figuring out tethering on native 4.1.2, that would be awesome!
Hi...just getting crazy with my tethering...I have htc sensation with Cm 10.1 and jb 4.2.2 and tethering works perfectly without any fix...then I bought an iOcean x7 mkt 6589 quad core with jb 4.2.1 and tethering is not working with same sim..if I use another carrier sim it works on iOcean as well...the sim not tethering on iOcean is TIM one...I tried all the workaround methods and app but no luck....does anyone have suggestions....
Android 4.1.2 introduced that ability (and requirement) for Android devices to properly flag when data is for tethering purposes. This is the first time this has been used in a vanilla release of Android.
For everyone frustrated by this update to Android: Android respecting a carrier's request to know if data is for a tethered device IS NOT A BUG. IT IS A FEATURE. It's not a feature for users like you and me, it's a feature for manufacturers like Samsung and HTC, so they can in turn build devices that carriers can have more control over.
So, to be clear, THIS IS NOT A BUG. Google INTENDED to respect carrier tethering rules.
I think I'm in the same situation as you with Vodafone Italy :silly:
I'm running CyanogenMod 10.1 (so Android 4.1.2) with a Samsung Galaxy S2 and can't get the wi-fi thetering work: all seems ok, other devices can see and connect to the hot-spot, but can't get any data from it...
I thought it was some problems with the nightly builds of CM, but other people are reporting that wi-fi tethering is correctly working.
Now I read your message while searching some information about the Galaxy Nexus (my Galaxy S2 developed a faulty loudspeaker, and I'm considering to get it repaired under warranty then sell it and buy a Galaxy Nexus, I've found it at 269€) and maybe we have the same problem, but I've got Vodafone to lock the web.omnitel.it APN, to prevent costly surprises...
I think problems arise with operators that make distinctions between different kinds of APN (like Vodafone Italy with web.omnitel.it and mobile.vodafone.it) and not with the ones that don't care about the APN you use (to my knowledge, TIM Italy doesn't care about the APN you use)
I'll keep an eye on this topic and let you know if I find some news!
