Hi guys John here bet you’ve heard all this a few times before but yet another newbie seeking your advice please.
Problem of trying to tether for the first time. Having a laptop for xmas and want to tether to my mobile phone for light use when out and about.
I tried it today just to see if it would work with my standalone P.C. Turning the phone into a wifi hotspot was easy enough and my wifi software on the pc found the phone and said it was connected with a strong signal but wouldn’t actually connect to the net.
It said I have limited access. Currently on o2 and do have some data allowance.
I normally connect with a BT hub at home to the p.c. but switched this off for the trial.
Did a bit of searching and found that my phone (Huawei Ascend Y300) does not support DC-HSDPA.
Is this the problem? that its only capable of 7.2mbps or should it still connect all be it slow.
Hope someone has the answer for me.

No help in here. Time to look elsewhere.
