Tether-X helps you turn your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot. By configuring a few settings in your computer, you can take advantage of the big screen to do anything you want on the web using your phone's data plan. Watch the video how to setup tethering for quick setup: http://bit.ly/tetheringvideo Note: We don't store or share your location information. Location tracking is required to be able to run the app on the background. Although this is a free app, Tether-X will be limited to 1 time use per day after 10 days of use. You can unlock this by in-app purchasing and start using it unlimited times per day and it will be ad free too! Steps: 1) Launch an elevated command prompt, cmd (the one with administrator privileges) 2) Now, set up the hosted wireless network using this command. Replace the parts in markup tags with your own choices. netsh wlan set hosted mode=allow ssid=<enter_network_name_here> key=<enter_password_here> 3) Now, you need to start the network. Use the command below. netsh wlan start hosted Instead of dealing with commands you can use these scripts: http://bit.ly/tetherxscripts 3) Alternatively some people reported that it is easy to setup hosted wireless network with "Virtual Router Manager" program. 4) Connect the wireless network that you have created and make sure "Keep Wifi on when the screen times out" is checked under Setting -> Wifi -> Advanced 5) Open the Tether-X app and tap the 'Start Proxy Engine' 6) Set your proxy in Internet Explorer or your favorite browser. For IE: Tools -> Internet Options and click on the Connections tab. Click on the "LAN settings". Make sure "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is CHECKED and type in the Address as shown in Tether-X's home page, followed by the Port number.

Really great app!!! At my first glance of the review, I thought lt would have been hard to set it up. But that was bad instinct speaking. Moreover, it gives you the useful information of your internet once tethered your PC. Tether-x rocks charmly and it's really easy to use. 5 * well deserved!More
Can't use Wi-Fi share, a common problem with Lumia devices I hear. Which is what I was hoping for, still very good for a weird connection, much easier than it appears.More
Great for using your phone data on PC!!!More
Exactly what it saysMore
Mostly very good!
It does certainly obtain an internet connection for you to use as a temporary setup. It frequently left me suddenly offline, though, as the "proxy engine" would suddenly switch to using a different set of numbers, and thus I had to input the new numbers before I could get back online. Sometimes this will happen as frequently as every five or ten minutes! But not always. Anyway, it's a valuable app just for providing the means to a connection in a pinch, and if you just Google the things that are causing problems you can find some helpful tips on the web. So all in all it's definitely helpful and just a little annoying but for the price of free, how can one really complain?! Thanks.More
Worked once but couldn't get it to work again. No website or any other way to get more information.More
This is useless and not the tether of cellphone data plan to wireless devices I expected it to be. You have to have phone connected to a wifi network and this app tethers that network out to wireless devices?! Why would you even do that instead of having devices just connect directly to the same wifi network? Makes no good sense. Waste of time.More
Giving 4 stars as app is easy to set up and get connected to. Downside is their proxy server takes a lot of time to connect so browsing on PC becomes limited to checking emails most of the timesMore
Works well once setup. Had issues with adhoc in windows 7. Found you must disable and enable WiFi to see the adapter created by the command. Then you may have to enable the mini port adapter created by the command. But once that was done, work like a charm. Would be better if Microsoft didn't lock down the phone so much... It is what it is.More
Works great! Using PC over LTE with no Hotspot! Need to be able to configure IP for proxy - random makes it harder to keep clients configured and makes no sense why its random. Is there a good reason I'm overlooking? Perhaps the range it assigns from for the adhoc network is too large, or needs longer TTLsMore
