Hi all been having a lil trouble with my sII.
i have been using it for my main interweb connection for my pc for 6 months now and all has been fine, but two weeks ago it started to kick the pc off, the phone would say that the tether is still active and fine but the pc says that there aint no connection. this happens every 5 - 10 mins.
so i thought i would try the wi-fi tether but i get kicked off of this as well and my wi-fi dongle after being disconnected wont find my network at all but finds the other 20 - 30 hotspots that are around me fine, but the phone still says that it is on. i have to restart the phone to get it back or sometimes i can connect through the usb for the 5 mins that it will let me, and then it will let me back on to wi-fi.
so i tried a reformat of me pc installed the kies and the usb drivers and even disabled the windows firewall but this made absolutely no difference at all, so just to be sure i tried it on other computers and it did the same thing to them as well.
so i did a factory reset of the phone and this did nothing. i then decided to update the phone ( i dont normally do this type of thing as if it aint broke why mess with it) so i updated through the phone and then through kies. it updated fine to ics but this did not help either.
ive also tried third party apps like easy tether and the like but these are no difrent.
so next i have phoned up my provider (THREE) and asked them if they had decided to bring in the fair usage policy or if they were somehow killing the tethering thy said no and no being on the all you can eat plan means all you can eat, they then put me though to their technical support and they went though what i have tried and after 45 mins of various suggestions said they could not help me as this was a problem with the phone and not the network.
At a loss as to what to do next ive tried all that i can think of to cure this problem so any help that you good people can give me would be greatly appreciated
