I am paying my wireless carrier (MetroPCS) for the "hotspot" feature, which is required in order for me to tether. However, strange things are a happening....
I can't access google.com, although I can access it via IP address - 18.104.22.168. Which leads me to believe it has something to do with DNS resolution.
I can access android.stackexchange.com directly.
I can't access facebook.com either directly or via IP.
... I've tested this on multiple laptops, and the issue is the same. What in the world is going on?
