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!

    I was in an emergency situation and needed access to the internet, so within 1 min I was online with my laptop and using my Nokia 928. Great App.

    The program works fine for most part but it closes and changes ip's at random and now you can only open it once a day so when it crashes you. Screwed no way I would pay for it when that's happening

    The instructions are good. I get to the point of connecting to wifi, and I get"wifi didn't respond." And that's it.
