WiFi Tether for Root Users
This program enables wifi-tethering for “rooted” handsets.
Clients (your laptop for example) can connect via wifi and get access to the internet using the mobile connection (4G, 3G, 2G) of your phone.
Wifi-tethering creates a so called adhoc (peer-to-peer) network on most devices.
Infrastructure-mode is suppported for a large set of devices.
