connecting to a hotspot that allows only port 80
i have an android phone and an unlimited web (not data) plan that i'd like to use on my computer (32-bit quantal) once in a while.
i create the hotspot on my phone and my computer seems to connect to it -- at least that's what nm-applet says -- but i'm not able to actually use it in a browser.
i read elsewhere that i should set the proxy server in my browser to a specific IP from my APN settings on my phone, but that doesn't seem to help.
is there a step somewhere i'm missing? maybe this is a lot more complicated than i realized?
