Reconfiguration problem I've been using this service for over a year but needed to reinstall the app to get it to recognize a new phone. Simply clicking the Configure button did not work, as it would repeatedly scan for a phone without discovering it. That's tough to do without a separate Internet connection.
Working again with Android 5.1 and up This app and all other tether apps were broken by a flaw in Android 4.4. But after Android 5.1 it works again. And since most carriers charge a lot extra for a tether add on, you need something like this to tether without the add on fee (my carrier is $20-$40 /MO extra.)
Workaround I use a small USB powered WiFi router to give the tablet a hotspot to connect to. Configure the WiFi connection to the router with a fixed IP address like 192.168.1.2 so that it doesn't try to get an IP address from the router.
After you purchase the Fox-fi key, You don't really need this app, just access the Internet from your phone, tablet, or computer wi-fi settings using your phones data plan. Watch Sling TV, CBSN, Local live news, entertainment, etc, etc.
Can't get it to work Followed instructions to the letter. My tablet connects fine but never receives any internet
Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Works very good on my Ouku 7" tablet via BT tether. Clean and modernly designed app look. Highly recommend
Version 3.1 support Android 6.0 or above.
Finding and connecting securely to XFINITY WiFi hotspots has never been easier.
