LG Lucid question when using wifi tether

    I have an LG Lucid stock rooted 2.3.6. What do I select under the "device profile" option? I don't see an LG Lucid as an option so I left it as "default". Also, I was able to connect my iphone 5 to it and it seems to work ok however I noticed that netflix on my iphone 5 seems to not work while tethering. It says no data connection when I try to open netflix. My other apps work ok. Thanks for any help.

    As stated in other threads, the problem is that most apps look for a Wi-Fi or 3G connection. When this isn't detected, the app fails to work. The OpenGarden devs are looking into it.

    Thank you for the reply. My apologies. Do you know what device profile I should select for the LG Lucid? Does it matter if I select default or auto detect? I just don't want to have an unexpected bill from Verizon. Thanks

    This user is actually talking about our other app called WiFi Tethering... so this issue doesn't apply to her situation, but thanks for your input! I plan on separating the forum so each app has it's own category and this confusion doesn't happen anymore. :)

    @luohan I'm not too familiar with iOS but if you can capture a log using this link and attach it to this thread or send it along to tether@opengarden.com with a link to this thread.

    In reference to which device profile you should use... use any one that works! ;) It is not a dire setting... its just there's a lot of new devices with different settings that break functionality of WiFi Tethering so other profiles are sometimes necessary to get it working.
