    HELP
    I get an internet connection that lasts a few seconds then poof. or maybe it was pre cached pages on my browser and never got anything. NO I did, yeah. I conncected my old EVO via wifi and same problem as my laptop. (even though my HP has a chipset lan that fought all the time with my EVO 4G.
    Is it a DNS glitch. seems like it can’t go anywhere then times out.
    I guess i should try pinging a website huh. Ok I only pinged Google. I used IP6 #’ s and IP4 #’s I the first packet got timed out the first few times but then i got clean returns for both.
    Any Ideas? Not really a techie. just a poser. LOL

      Make sure you are connected to the phone, did your phone buzz when your computer connected? If not, you might want to restart the computer and try connecting again.

    my phone is rooted and I have installed the wifi tether file. The computer connects but with limited access. I did a troubleshooting test and it came back with a DNS problem. What do I do, I looked at the DNS on the phone evo 3D, and it had dns 8.8.8.8.

  19. JamesB says:

    I finally figure out how to get both 4 g and 3g tethering to work. for 4g you can just use the wifi tether software to get 3g do work disable the wifi tethering and dowload the barnacle wifi tethering and that will work on 3 g. b sure to create a SSID FOR BOTH TETHRRING software.

  20. walter says:

    I still can’t get both to work. It keeps saying said already in use. How do I create one for each applation

  21. walter says:

    Ssid already in use***

  22. gfree says:

    james b!!! That is awesome barnacle works, just pulled up facebook on 3g using it. THANKS BRO.

  23. Eryn says:

    Like most of you I couldn’t get the tethering to work after rooting my phone. Then I noticed at the end of the video the HACKS guy was talking about this new rom he had installed and really liked.

    TweakedSynergy ROM for HTC Evo 3D! [3800+ Quadrant]

    http://htcevohacks.com/category/htc-evo-3d-custom-roms/

    Once I installed that my tether worked perfectly 3g or 4g.

    Thanks hacks for lessons on rooting.

  32. greekkid82 says:

    Thank You! Yes, it does work on 1.50, i just did it myself, works excellent! Keep up the good work and again, thank you.

  33. Bob-C says:

    The latest version on android-wifi-tether.com has a profile for the Evo 3D. It is version 3.1 Beta 11. Download it from their site. The version provided in the video did not work for me. This version did. I tethered my Windows 7 laptop and my HP Touchpad easily. You still have to check off the Routing Fix as in the video above. I changed the Profile from Auto to Evo 3D but don’t know if it is necessary. If the profile is there, may as well select it rather than letting that app figure it out.

    BTW, I love the part in the video where you start laughing at all the naughty-america videos on your phone listed right above the WIFI tether download!! Since I know what that is, I ain’t throwing rocks.

    • dw says:

      i was having a hard time with this, i followed everything but 4g wouldnt tether only 3g.
      i uninstalled and downloaded the beta .. same thing dam!
      oh wait! i read how bob-c changed profile to evo 3d, wow worked like a charm!! Awesome!
      thanks, the rest of you guys should give this fix a try now i have 4g working yay! now im scared if i change roms ill crew this up somehow! 🙁

  34. mikej764 says:

    Heck yeah, so easy to install and works Perfectly. Thanks Man, you rock!!!

  35. Mike says:

    It took a little time and some careful typing but, the end result is that it works. The wifi does seem to be limited to data only so far. Any ideas on how to open it up to more?

  36. SA evo3d says:

    HELP PLEASE…i followed ALL steps but when I click on the open after I installed wifi tether it states “NO ROOT” YOUR KERNELS DOES NOT HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY FEATURES FOR RUNNING THIS APPLICATION….Please help

  37. VINDICTIVE says:

    Sup Hack Guy,

    I’ve been using your instruction videos religiously and they’re GREAT! However, I’m having a problem with my 4g tethering. I’ve read the posts but I’m not sure how to implement their instructions. I’m using “WiFi Tether” and it works well with my Evo3d but it’s not working for 4g anymore. Worked when I first installed it but not anymore. Can you please me out with the problem bud? Thanks.

  38. VINDICTIVE says:

    Excuse me, my 3g works but not 4g.

  39. ds says:

    There are apps for this like “Hotspot App”

    daily, if so after that you will without doubt get pleasant experience.
