    Ok so i have a Nintendo wii which i have downloaded the netflix app for. i connect my wii to the internet using my pre and mobile hot-spot. It works great except for every 19 minutes exactly it loses its connection while streaming. I know theres alot of different things it can be but does anyone have any ideas or settings i may be able to change on my phone to fix this? Thanks for your help.

    I'm not quite sure what's causing your issue, but wanted to warn you that streaming movies will probably go through your 5gb/month allowance pretty quickly lol.

    Be careful or you'll get slapped with overage charges.

    It could just be Netflix. Their movies don't always stream very well and it could be made especially bad if something affects your phone signal, even briefly.

    I could never stream without interruption, until I got a super fast FiOs connectionn.

    My U-verse was down for a few days so I was hopping on xbox live with my pre and couldn't play MW2 without having to guess where I was shooting and running from all the lag, buuuut Netflix was streaming almost flawlessly, sometimes got HD quality. Never tried on my Wii. Are you using the new Netflix channel or the disc? I would check both ways and see what happens.

    P.S. At&t lost a subscriber because of their crappy fiber optic technology, it's a joke. I don't care if Comcast cable menus look stuck in the 90's, I'm happy now.

    My only solution is to reset the app. I would also appreciate some assistance.

    I've been having issue playing Call of Duty online with my palm pre plus mobile hotspot. Keeps disconnecting. I timed it while I was playing and guess what? It stopped at 19 minutes. My guess is there is a setting in the phone to disconnect a device from the hotspot if too much data is downloaded in a certain amount of time. I may be wrong, but why else would it just drop a connection? I've tried more troubleshooting than anyone else on any forum I have read and I'm running out of ways to connect this thing to my wii. The only thing I haven't tried is connecting the wii to a router via lan and using that as a bridge to the phone or sharing the internet connection through laptop. If that doesn't work, then the problem is the phone dropping the connection after a certain amount of data has been downloaded in a certain amount of time. If this does work (will try this weekend, just got the cable) then the problem is something about the Nintendo wifi connection just not liking this phone.

    I would guess that the carrier results connections at certain intervals assuming its just an open connection that isn't valid. I think I remember reading here last summer that someone posted the time out for sprint or maybe at&t that confirmed this. Too far back for me to find the post, but I'll keep looking.

    try the preware tethering app, if you get the same problem, I would say it is the wireless service

    Can FreeTether co-exist with mobile hotspot? Obviously you can only use one or the other at a time - but does installing FreeTether interfere in any way with Mobile Hotspot?

    I only have used Mobile Hotspot - what is the advantage of using FreeTether?

    IIRC, freethether will not use your "mobile hotspot" data but rather your standard data package.

    Check here: Application:FreeTether - WebOS Internals

    Internet access, telephone, and television service that operates over a fiber-optic communications network
    Yes, that is a Britten super bike.
