Issues using tethering from boost mobile to laptop

Over the past month i have been having issues downloading basic things like windows updates and my virus scan updated when using my boost mobile for internet.

 

I have had no issues in the past, today i took my laptop to a friends and within a few monutes on linking to his NBN wifi thr downloads were downloading. 

 

i disconnected from that and tried my mobile again by USB and wifi and nothing happens at all, I can browse websites and do normal things but why can i now not do things like Windows upgrades or virus updates over this service?

You can NOT use phone as modem on Boost Mobile, but you can tether. As far as I know, the W385 can NOT do tethering. You can easily setup an HTC Mogul on Boost CDMA Service, then use ICS  to share over bluetooth or WiFi (Ad-Hoc) and for the printer related issues you can visit the hp printer offline windows 10  and you will get the instant help.
