Proxy and port setting

I’m using Netshare app on my Android phone to WiFi tether to cellular data. I can successfully connect my GL-MT3000 to the phone with the app, however, I have no Internet access. The app connection instructions are to set the proxy and port to specific settings, however I don’t know how to do that on the GL-MT3000 router.
Any help would be appreciated!

Why don’t you create Hotspot with the phone settings instead of using an additional App?

You can easily create Hotspot using Android: Share a mobile connection by hotspot or tethering on Android - Android Help

Supposedly the app gets around data caps and speed throttling.
Yes, I can use hotspot/tethering on the cell phone, but speed will be slower.

I do not use Android but in theory you should get the same speed by switching to 5GHz from the stock hotspot settings.

How did you do that?

I can connect my phone to the modem using the normal hotspot/tethering, however, I’m throttled to 3G speed by my cell plan.
With the Netshare app, the provider doesn’t see the connection as a hotspot, so I get data at 5G speed. Only thing I need to know is how to set up a proxy/port connection on the GL-MT3000 router…

After you connect your GL to the phone’s Hotspot please login to your GL:

And perform all the three diagnostics and paste the result here:

The NetShare looks like it runs a proxy server on your Android smartphone. This would be similar to the PdaNet+ and Every Proxy apps on Android, both of which I have used and basically work. I prefer Every Proxy over PdaNet+.

If so, you need a proxy client on the GL-MT3000 to router traffic to the proxy IP address and port number on the Android smartphone. I have not personally done this, but you can try the following:

For a few client devices when I travel, I just run Every Proxy on a spare Android smartphone and connect Android/iPad/Windows devices directly to it because they all have proxy clients built-in.
