    Default [3G 2.1]HELP w/ tethering before I cry :(

    I've been going batcrap insane trying to get my iPhone to tether.

    I've NEVER been able to establish and maintain an Ad Hoc connection. I use a Macbook Pro running Windows XP (I like to play online games that aren't WoW, what can I say...). I've had both a 2G and 3G iPhone, and on both of them when I follow the bazillion guides out there for creating Ad Hoc between my laptop and iPhone, it just won't work.

    It will connect, but it usually says it has no signal (even though they're 6 inches apart). I've finally gotten it to the point where it DOES show some signal with my 3G, but as in the case of no signal, it won't stay connected for more than about 10 seconds. On the iPhone 3G, when I connect to my Ad Hoc network, the 3G icon never switches to the Wifi icon. My laptop will say it is connected, and the iPhone gives me no errors, it just simply won't change the 3G icon to the Wifi icon, which is apparently important because both PDANet and PhoneModem won't detect that I'm wirelessly connected.

    I've pretty well given up hope of getting the 2 to play nicely together wirelessly.

    That moves me on to attempting to Tether via USB. I was able to do this on my 2G, using iphone_tunnel, 3proxy, and proxifier (even though iphone_tunnel crashed about every 5 mins and needed to be restarted). Now that I have a 3G iPhone (running 2.1), I can't get USB tethering to work in ANY way. I've tried what I tried before with iphone_tunnel, I've tried using iPhone tunnel suite 2.7, I've tried just using iTunnel combined with a couple of different proxy programs on both the iPhone and the PC.

    It all gives me the same problem - if I go into proxifier (or tunnelier portable), I can ping google. The proxy tests all work. The trouble is I can't get ANYTHING that uses internet on my PC to actually work. It's like proxifier / tunnelier aren't redirecting the traffic on my PC, and I have NO idea why. I have everything set up exactly the same way I did with my 2G, it just doesn't work now.

    If anyone has ANY ideas, they would be greatly appreciated!

    create the ad hoc on the computer. make it unsecured.
    it will broadcast the wireless after that. connect the phone to the network and then start pdanet.
    i know it works perfectly with vista. you could try to bootcamp vista?

    You know, I think I'll try that, lol. Anything is worth a shot at this point. I have a copy of Vista Ultimate that I bought some time ago and never used. I'll give that a try in a few hours when I'm off work and report back.

    I may cut myself if the answer was that simple though.
