When it works, it works great! The problem is, it uses the 5 GHz band by default, but all my devices use the 2.4 GHz band. Usually it will eventually revert to the 2.4 band, and then it's fine. But it hasn't been doing that recently. Instead, it's been turning off, instead of using the 2.4 band (but the app *says* it's still transmitting. I know it's not, because my battery life is more than double what it normally is, when it's running properly). If not for that, this deserves 5 ⭐

If you only use a web browser it works fine. I'm a gamer and it doesn't work for them. It uses a proxy which means every program has to be configured. If the program has proxy settings it doesn't work either. If I were able to set a proxy in Windows 10 settings instead of the control panel maybe this would work, but it doesn't. No response from support either.

Works like a charm once you configure the proxy! AT&T blocks tethering but this app bypasses that. And once I allowed the app to run unrestricted in the background (power setting), I realized I could put my phone to sleep and that fixed my biggest grievance. Only using for web browsing and streaming, but when your WiFi goes out, this is the solution!
