    Default Galaxy S3 Mega disconnecting /reconnecting from USB port

    Hi,
    We have an S3 Mega, started using it as a Wi Fi access point for a Gateway Desktop, Windows 7. After 8 hours of flawless operation , the usb starting disconnecting and then reconnecting.
    The check box in the settings screen for USB tethering would uncheck. If you rechecked it it would connect then disconnect and uncheck the box. We moved from a front USB port on the Gateway to a rear USB port and that fixed that problem but after overnight, no WiFi access. Rebooting the computer fixed that. Has anyone had this problem? Other wise it works great, fast.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums.
    Have you installed updated drivers on your PC. They can be found on Samsung's website.

    Yes we did. We are just trying to save a few buck on buying a wireless access point since the Galaxy's work great for that. Most of the time.
