Does Wifi Router = Tethering?

A newb question, I know, but I found the Wifi Router cab over at XDA, and was wondering if my carrier (USC) will consider this the dreaded "tethering" or not?

Re: Does Wifi Router = Tethering?

Do some searching on this forum and you'll see how to "stealth tether" so that your carrier can't tell you're doing it

All the custom ROMs do this. I'm fairly positive it works with USCC as well, but you'll want to verify that first

You can either flash to Mighty's ROM (or any of the other custom ROMs, as well) since they have stealth (undetected) tethering built right in... or you can go to the thread below and install the files from the first post (be sure to read the whole thread so that you are up to speed on tethering):

Re: Does Wifi Router = Tethering?

is everyone sure that wi-fi router is the same as tethering? reading in that thread posted above someone posted a SS of what pops up on their browser when trying to tether with VzW.

i have used wi-fi router but NEVER gotten that screen from VzW...


can someone that has Verizon and used wi-fi router comment?


or maybe i dont get that screen because i have unlimited data or ???

Not getting that screen from VZW is a GOOD thing... If that screen pops up, then it means they can see you tethering and want to charge you for it.

If the VZW screen doesn't pop up, then you are 'stealth tethering'

Re: Does Wifi Router = Tethering?

I read the entire post about tethering...

From what I could read - and I could be wrong - tethering has NEVER been detected via wifi router...
Can anyone confirm this?


It seemed to me, only people tethering via usb were caught ???


Also - I have noticed 2 files.

The ICS WModem fix cab
As well as the "Hot Fix" cab posted in the tethering discussion.


Are people installing BOTH of these files ???

Correct.

I know you're hoping to hear from someone besides me, but if you install those two files, then run wifi router, you will not be caught.

Trust me. I'm on Verizon as well, and have used this same method without a single problem.

But if you're still worried, flash to MightyMike's custom ROM and you can be sure you're tethering 100% undetected since he cooks the files into his ROM automatically for you
