Couple days ago, I went on a trip to Lake Tahoe to see snow with my rooted Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605. Well, I didn’t realize that I didn’t setup wifi tether but was able to get it working while on the way there.
It’s pretty simple, you will need a rooted Verizon Note 2 and also use a modified Wifi Tether app.
Step 1. Download and install the modified Wifi Tether app:
Download modified Wifi Tether app
You can use ES File Explorer to install the downloaded apk file.
Step 2. Run the Wifi Tether app and choose “Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)” for Device-Profile.
Step 3. Choose “Netd-Ndc (master)” for Setup Method.
Step 4. Make sure “Send Netd Max Client Cmd” is checked ON.
Step 5. And also make sure “Routing Fix” is checked ON.
Step 6. You can setup SSID and wifi encryption if you’d like. Once everything set up, simply start the Wifi Tether and try connecting to it from your computer or another wifi device.
Now, remember this only lets you bypass Verizon’s monthly charges on tethering but it will still count under your data plan. I personally have a grandfathered unlimited plan, which means everything is free but for those of you who don’t, be aware that it does still count under your data plan.
Also, for those of you on unlimited plan, use your common sense and don’t abuse this feature by running your whole home internet off it. Light and moderate usage will be fine (maybe around 2-10GB/month) but if you abuse it, Verizon has the right to terminate your account.
And lastly but not least, enjoy!
