Samsung - Tethering suddenly not working after 4.3 upgrade

Galaxy Nexus Q&A - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
Hey, is anyone having tethering problems since updating to 4.3?

I'm on StraightTalk (Tmobile sim) and I've been tethering from my phone to my laptop and tablet for a while now using the built in Portable Hotspot feature through the OS. I've just noticed though that this week after upgrading to PA 3.95 that any devices connected to the hotspot immediately ask to "Sign in to Wifi" which I've never seen before-- kind of like how public wifi networks are. If I select the option to sign in, it just redirects to a tmobile/mnvo page that never loads.

I've always known that tmobile and straighttalk don't allow tethering, but it's always worked for me. Even on the laptop, which usually ends up directing me to an upsell page, i just log into VPN right after connecting and I'm on with no problems.

Is anyone else having this problem? I wonder if it's a 4.3 issue? Or maybe i should try a tether app from the Play store instead of what's baked into the OS. Suggestions anyone?

Thanks in advance for your help!
