    I can't figure this out.

    I'm sharing via my iMac to my PS4. Sharing iPhone USB to the PS4 with the ethernet. It works fine.. it's just half the speed or slower. I have a 40Mb connection with the iPhone 5 with LTE, but only able to download at about 13Mb on the PS4.

    Any advice, suggestions, etc., to speed that up?

    That post didn't make any sense. But if you're using USB, then that would be your speed limit. USB is the slowest speed of anything you mentioned in that post.

    Ok, sorry...

    I have my iPhone tethered to my iMac. That is listed as iPhone USB in the Sharing settings.

    The USB connection isn't really limiting me that much at all. I get 35-40Mbs down and 8-13Mbs up while tethering via USB.

    When I share that connection via wifi, the device using that wifi spot is only getting 13-15Mbs down and 1.3MBs up.

    I hope that clarifies my problem.
