exhausted Posted September 4, 2013 Share Posted September 4, 2013 (edited) Hi guys and gals. I got my first pineapple there two days ago. Its a Mk IV running 3.0.0 firmware. I've found a few posts already through the search function of the forums where people have posted about tethering over usb with their droid but they have to play around with IP tables to get it working. I heard somewhere that 3.0.0 supports android tethering over USB out of the box (im guessing not requiring configuration?) So my first question. Does my MK4 support tethering over usb to my android automatically or do i need to play around with IP tables to get it running? i hope i make sense in what i wrote below.. The reason im asking is because im connecting via usb to my pineapple and the usb light comes on the mk4, i select tethering in my os and activate it however i live in a crappy part of ireland so i get little to no 3G coverage anyway. When i went to an area with decent coverage i used my phones wifi to connect to my mk4. So when i then load up a page on my android (which is connected to the mk4 over wifi) the browser works searching google, yahoo etc but is that my mobile's 3G connection that is displaying google (and bypassing the mk4) or is it my 3G connection going into my pineapple and then my pineapple is serving me internet over wifi to my phone? Its like an endless loop. The reason im asking the above is that i dont have another device to test on the mk4 while tethered so i dont know am i serving internet to other connected devices? UPDATE: Im running a GT-I9300 rooted running Cyan 10.1 JB 4.2.2 Edited September 4, 2013 by exhausted Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
