Setting up your Router with Tether

Managing Administrators with Tether
Tether lets you designate which of your devices or users gets to control the router and permissions that come with that. Set up an administrator device and choose the devices to be managed to apply permissions however you see fit!
Live Network Management Access with Tether
Tether will give you an overview of who is connected to the router; see someone who shouldn’t be there? Tether also lets you block them from your network at the touch of a button. Say goodbye to Wi-Fi hogging strangers!
Keeping Children Safe from Harmful Content with Tether
Using a URL-based ‘white list’, you can determine which sites are safe to visit (and in so doing, prevent access to those that aren’t), while also limiting access to the network during certain times of day for your children’s devices, so bed time - means bed time!
Streaming Router-Connected Files and Media to your Devices
Tether allows you to detect and stream media files on USB hard drives or flash disks connected to your router, to your android devices.
• Supported photo formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP.
• Supported audio and video formats: depended on what formats are supported on the smartphone.
