USB Tethering not working - April Update

After my S9 updated for the April update, I have lost the ability to use USB tethering. It is (was) connected to my Asus router RT-AC68U to spread the joy of the internet to all my devices.

 

However since the April update (which updated this week) my router is having issue and reports that an issue has occurred with the ISP's DHCP. The router was flashed to an earlier version and factory defaulted, this made no difference no matter what version was used.

 

Phone was then put back to factory default settings, after setting everything back up the same issue persists. 

 

Can Samsung please address this issue.

Have you wiped the cache partition since the update? Have you spoken to your carrier regarding USB Tethering?

Re: USB Tethering not working - April Update

I have the same problem. Until the update (Version: G965FXXU8DTC5/G965FOVF8DTC5/G965FXXU8DTC5) yesterday (26th of April 2020) my S9+ was connected to my router (Fritz!Box 7390) an USB tethering worked pretty good. Right after the update it didn't work anymore. That's a desaster! Neither restarting the router helped nor that of my S9+. How can this be fixed? I need urgently help, because it disturbes homeschooling due to corona drastically in our case.

Re: USB Tethering not working - April Update

I spoke to '3' who are my phone carier, the guy on the other did not have a clue and was fobbed off saying that technical support wouod resolve the issue within two hours. 

 

I cached the phone by doing bixby, volume up and power on, and selecting clear cache this correct? 

 

Any advise would be great at this time.

Have same issue after Aprill update tethering stop working.

Was conneting the phone to Asus router via USB cable. Routher shows error: Your ISP's DHCP does not function properly. 

Cache partition wiped but didn't help.

What interesting thethering to my PC working fine. Hotspot also working fine.

There is more phones with the tethering proble as S10 phone users reports the same at the topic: "Galaxy-S10/USB-tethering-doesn-t-work-after-the-update"

Re: USB Tethering not working - April Update

I have the same issue. Galaxy S9 No tethering to asus router after update. My sons nonupdated phone (Note 9) works. 

It works connecting directly to PC. Have been in contact with your support. Did a factory reset. Have been in contact with my ISP. Have been in contact with Asus. Have downgraded router. No solutiotion as of yet.

 

I cant use my other subscriptions as I would like because of this.. Rather enjoy Netflix on 55 inches with family instead on 24 inches by myself at the PC.

Re: USB Tethering not working - April Update

I am currently having to teather the phone remotely, but items that use the ethernet cables e.g. hue hub are proving problematic. Alexa isn't connecting either, so house isnt so smart. I tried to roll back the update via the sammobile website without success. 

 

Teathering is my option for the time being. If i find a solution i will post it.
