    Took a few tries to connect to the wifi but I got it working. Here's my setup:

    Phone: Sprint S3, stock rom, rooted.

    TetherApp: WifiTether-TrevE_Mod_11_22_2012_driverReload2 (Version 3.-beta2-modv5***Synergized***) downloaded from link in post #1 of this thread.

    I kept the setting at their defaults except for the changes below:
    -enabled BOTH Wifi-driver reload methods as suggested by another user
    -Changed SSID name

    Once I got it to connect I then enabled wifi-encryption and changed the passphrase. So far so good. Thanks to Skunkape60 and everyone who contributed their experiences.

    When I turn on the WiFi tether app it automatically shuts off my WiFi connection.

    Thank you! I was banging my head against the wall. Tethering was working for me, but then I updated my baseband to MD4 awhile back and then installed the latest Wi-Fi Tether. When I tried testing it this week with my new 2nd gen Nexus 7 tablet, I could never see the SSID.

    Again, the latest version of Wi-Fi Tether did NOT work for me.

    So, to clarify and recap this is what worked for me...

    Samsung Galaxy S3 on Sprint
    IMPORTANT: I had to make sure that WiFi is turned OFF on my phone first before starting tethering! Otherwise, my tablet doesn't see the SSID.
    Baseband: MD4
    Android Version: 4.1.2
    WiFi Tether version: 3.2-beta2-modv5 ***Synergized*** (link) (also in first post).
    Installer filename: WifiTether_TrevE_Mod_11_22_2012_driverReload2.apk
    Settings:
    • Device-Profile: Samsung Galaxy S3
    • Setup-Method: Auto
    • Enable WiFi-Encryption: Disabled (for me, for now)
    • SSID: I changed mine to just "Android"
    • Change Channel: 1
    • Don't disable Bluetooth: unchecked
    • WiFi-driver reload: checked
    • WiFi-driver reload 2: checked
    • Enable Access-Control: unchecked (for me, for now)

    I have a issue I haven't seen mentioned anywhere. I installed the tether apk and AndroidTether shows on both my Windows 8 and Windows XP laptops. Windows 8 connects and downloads fine. Windows XP won't connect.
    Setting that worked for Win 8 laptop are:
    Sprint GS3, rooted, stock rom. Superuser installed.
    Baseband MD4
    Android ver. 4.1.2
    WiFi ver. WifiTether_TrevE_Mod_11_22_2012.apk
    Settings:
    Profile - GS3
    Setup - Netd-Ndc
    Send Netd Max Client Cmd
    Enable WiFi Encryption
    Enable WiFi driver reload
    Enable WiFi driver reload 2
    Enable MSS Clamping
    Enable Routing Fix

    Do I need to change something in the app for XP or update some XP drivers?

    Hi,
    just wanted to say that with CM 10.2 nightly 25 sept 2013, tethering wifi is ONLY functional if no encrpyption (WPA etc...) are selected. I don't really like to be in a coffee shop n be an open access network for all. Hopefully, one day it will be fixed. Tried USB tethering with no success.

    thanx!
