I am accessing internet with my Laptop through 3G USB Tethering from my Nexus S with Android 4.0.4.
About half of the time, I lose connection and I am unable to access any website on my Laptop or use any application that connects to the internet (eg. ping), except for Gmail and Skype (which still work very well). And it goes back and forth frequently between the normal situation and the odd one.
If I try to access any other website on my laptop (like google.com), I get depending on the website:
"No data received Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data."
"This webpage is not available Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection"
Do you have an explanation for this bizarre behavior? Do you think an app is interfering with my connection?
