Tethering or Bridge browsing

I did so research last night after running into an issue with a website that I log into with a password for work.

 

Some sites such as the one above won't work with bridge browsing (I cant explain exactly why, but it has something to do with the way sites are compressed through your BB before they arrive on your Playbook through Bridge browsing)

 

It was neccessary for me to activate tetheringI checked rates with my service provider, 3 cent a MB so the odd time this is neccesary its no big deal.

 

The site works fine on wi-fi, as they don't get compressed then, Just through tethering. So if you have an issue on bridge brwosing, you might want to go this route
