    Default Help create perm ad-hoc network on iphone for iPad

    I use pdanet to create a wifi hotspot to tether my iphone internet to my laptop, sometimes... I usually just use the built in but that's not the point. I would like to know if I could lock the phone in to thinking the adhoc network is always there so I don't have to use my computer to first create the network and then connect to it. Why? You may ask. Well I tried this. I first created the network with my mac then connected my ipod touch to it and disconnected my computer. the connection remained and I was able to continue using my touch over the iphones 3g internet. So what? You may ask. Well if I can do that then I think I should be able to do that with my soon to be iPad. So as long as I have my phone I could connect my iPad to it and use it's internet while driving down the freeway browsing etsy.com... JK... but you get the point. Can we do it?!

    1st, don't brows and drive!

    2nd, are you thinking you can get an iPad with Wifi and tether to the iPhone for 3G? I have used PDANet both Wifi and USB. They would have to write an app for the iPad if you wanted to go USB (which would mean a jailbroken iPad.)

    But a wifi connection should work without jumpstarting with your laptop at all. PDANet turns your iPhone into a wifi router and you should be able to connect directly from the iPad. I was able to connect to PDANet from my Wii.

    I switched from wifi to USB because there were issues running wifi and 3g on the iPhone. The connection would drop out. Maybe they fixed that problem.

    I'm not sure they answer you gave is accurate, but I'm not 100% it's wrong either.

    My understanding is that PDANet works by one FIRST setting up an Ad-Hoc network on your laptop and then SECOND telling the iPhone to connect to it. I don't know there there would be a way to setup an ad-hoc network from just the iPhone and the iPad.

    Default pdanet tethering to ipad not so much now

    I have pdanet working on tethering to my laptop via usb. Re the above comment I am trying to tether wirelessly to my iPad with no success so far.

    The iPad doesn't see the iPhone as a wireless modem, so far. Perhaps if I knew more about the DCHP and such?

    Ideas and comments would be appreciated.

    since pdanet requires setting up an ad hoc network on the laptop, that may be why you cant make the iPad see your iphone running pdanet, it may be a pdanet problem

    I would be interested in knowing if MyWi would work instead of pdanet

    with MyWi, you initiate the creation of the wifi hotspot at the iPhone, not at the computer

    so my question is, has anyone tried to connect an iPad to a MyWi enabled iPhone? I understand the phone must be jailbroken, to install MyWi or pdanet, Apple does not enable tethering on iPhones that are not jailbroken, to protect ATT's data connection fee structures..

    ==
    can anyone confirm this: http://tinyurl.com/y7l679s
    "After downloading MyWi, all you have to do is launch the app, and flip the “WiFi Tethering” option to on. Then you can search for available WiFi networks on your iPad (or any other device) and you will see your iPhone as an available wireless network. That’s it, now you can enjoy your iPhone’s unlimited data plan on your iPad without a hardware upgrade or monthly fee.

    In our tests, we found the speed to be excellent and we did not have any trouble establishing or keeping a good connection. It works so well that you’d honestly think you were using an iPad 3G with its plan."

    I can confirm this works. I had an iPad for about 24 hours before I returned it and I used MyWi to set up a wireless network for the iPad to surf from. Worked like a charm. MyWi is a pretty killer app.

    That should be possible with some simple network connection tools, luckily most Apple OS products actually have a Linux foundation, especially at the network level.

    If you really wanted to do this you could open up those settings in an editor, configure the devices to permanently behave in the way you prefer. Since you don't want to restrict how it connects all the time, you can just modify the network settings so at least when you are in transit, and don't want to muddle with files, to work by attaching an icon. if you make it executable the OS will get the idea and just run the settings. then to change, click the other icon. etc. so if you wanted to use your "mobile broadband" connection to run things, easy.

    The directory you want to access via a "terminal" in the Ipad is called /etc . The terminal should under the accessories. I could run you through a few setups by way of screenshot but sadly I don't have an Ipad yet.

    that said i'd love to see some screenshots of pdanet in action as you have describe, it sounds cool.
