    Since the Sprint Pixi doesn't have wifi you couldn't turn it into a wifi hotspot anyway! However you should be able to tether via usb by enabling usbnet and using the IP forwarding feature on freetether...

    JUST INSTALLED and work PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ran a speedtest from speedtest.net and I DL 2.0 Mbps from my Sprint Pre network.

    This is faster then the internet i have been jacking from my neighbor.

    Coincidentally, I only avg. DL speeds on my pre at only 700 kbps. Anyone care to explain why?

    Also, How do you make a direct connection via usb so we dont even need to make wifi hotspot to get internet?

    Hmmmmm. Mobile Hotspot shows up in my Launcher, turns on and shows up on my laptop as an avaliable network. I choose my (hotspot) network, it shows that it connects but nothing...on the bottom right there's an icon of two computer monitors that shows a blue orb (windows vista) when it connects but that never shows up. Any ideas about what I'm missing?

    Edit: I'm on Sprint 1.4.1.1

    let me know. This version was working for me last time I checked. I don't use it often.
    I hope you don't mind, I just updated my original post to use links to where you hosted the files. I made sure to cite your post where you originally gave the links to the files.

    That happens for me too, and for Verizon users using the official mobile hotspot app on their Pres. The Data Connection will come back after a few seconds usually.

    Hmm, I'm not sure, but it sounds like it might be a problem with your computer not your Pre. Have you tried connecting to the mobile hotspot with another device besides your computer?

    Got it working just fine on my sprint pre tonight.
    Just got a new pre 2 weeks because of a hardware issue. Had not put web0s quick install on my new windows 7 laptop. Took about 10 times longer to get novacom installed then to get mobile hotspot working.

    have a dumb question. I got the hotspot and its working great. Are we charged per minute that its on as a mobile hotspot device??

    Works on ATT Pre+ too. In fact, I'm using it right now. Wifi connected to my PC. Internet speeds are not lacking either.
    I was going to post the speed test image but I don't have enough posts yet to do it. My download speeds are 2.14Mbps and upload speeds of .31Mbps with a ping of 332ms.
    Not too shabby imo.

    you will have no charge of anything just keep using it and enjoy it.

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've reinstalled the files so many times in so many ways and yet nothing works. My PS3 connects to my pre but when it comes to obtaining an ip adress it always fails. I even installed freetether and it automatically enables the ip address and I can see what's the ip address but still it fails on obtaining an ip address. Also how would I enable usb tether since I'm on the subject. Btw I'm using a Sprint Pre on 1.4.1.1. Thanks if you can help and hello everyone this is my first post.

    Sorry if this is the wrong location. I have been using this for some time now - thanks!

    I received a message today in MHS along the lines of "Your device is not approved for connection sharing. Please contact Sprint"

    Should I be concerned? I have never seen this before.
