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.

7) Restart your browser if necessary and enjoy your internet!  If you run into any issues, please contact us via "send feedback" link from the app. 

Thanks!

    If you're too stupid to type two commands into the command line and set a proxy for your web browser, don't leave a negative review. Instead, just kill yourself before you propagate a wave of equally stupid offspring.

    It's a proxy server not a Wi-Fi hotspot. They should really change the description of the app. This app does not create a Wi-Fi hotspot for any device to connect. Basically you make your laptop or desktop give out wifi either using command prompt or an exe called virtual router (virtual router is easiest). Then you connect your phone to the network you created. Go to your browser on PC (preferably IE) go to IE setting type the proxy numbers and bam Internet on your PC

    Works as intended, only problem I have is how limited the use is but beggars can't be choosers.
