    iPhone 5 Personal Hotspot and Slingplayer Not Working

    bobkbusch

      I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 6 and "Personal Hotspot" capability on AT&T.

       

      I am in an "LTE" area with strong signal and the Slingplayer app works beautifully on my iPhone.

       

      I also have Slingplayer on my laptop.  It works fine with wifi.

       

      However, if I setup my iPhone's "Personal Hotspot" and connect my laptop to the Personal Hotspot, Slingplayer does not work on the laptop.

       

      I get the following message:  "Your Slingbox has been disconnected because of a poor internet connection.  Try connecting again.  Code W202."

       

      The internet connection provided by the iPhone Personal Hotspot is very strong (LTE with 5 bars) and in fact, I get over 2MB/s download speeds on the laptop.

       

      So...is this an Apple iOS problem, AT&T problem, or Slingplayer problem?
